Ubisoft and ESL form Rainbow Six Siege eSports league

Ubisoft and ESL form  Rainbow Six Siege  eSports league
January 29, 2016 | By Chris Kerr




Ubisoft and leading eSports outfit ESL have joined forces to give the developer's tactical shooter, Rainbow Six Siege, its own dedicated eSports league

Starting on March 4 this year, the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Pro League tournament will take place at the Intel Extreme Masters in Katowice, Poland.

A total of eight matches will kick off the European PC competition, with tournaments on the Xbox One and in North America planned for the following weeks. 

Each season of the Pro League will see eight teams from different regions compete on both Xbox One and PC. The best four teams from each platform will then be invited to the season final for the chance to win the lion's share of a $100,000 prize pool. 

According to Xavier Marquis, Siege's creative director, the game is a perfect fit for eSports, as it was "built from the ground up with competition in mind." 

ESL is part of a growing network of eSports organizers to fall under the banner of Swedish company MTG, which purchased a 74 percent stake in ESL for $83.7 million in July 2015. 

MTG also acquired fellow eSports company DreamHack for $28 million last November.
