Only a couple of weeks ago we announced that due to the covid and the restrictions applied in France, Ubisoft had had to postpone the Six Invitational that would take place in Paris.
Ubisoft in the announcement had stated that it was already working to find a new date. It must be said that it didn’t take them long to find it. In fact, Ubisoft has announced that the Rainbow Six Invitational will return in May 2021. The Six Invitational is Rainbow Six Siege’s biggest and most important tournament and it’s great that finally there is a date.

Unfortunately given the current situation we know that it may still vary but we hope that is not the case.
Due to travel restrictions imposed by the French government, Ubisoft was forced to postpone the fifth edition of the Six Invitational, which was supposed to be held in Paris. “We are thrilled to announce that the Six Invitational 2021 will take place in May 2021,” Ubisoft said. ?He will replace the Six Major of the 2021 season in May. The 20 teams currently qualified for the Six Invitational will retain their places and the prize pool of the event will remain unchanged, with a prize pool limit set at $ 3,000,000 USD.”
This means that the first Major will not be played this year. The same 20 teams that qualified for SI’21 will be in attendance for the first international LAN event for Rainbow Six in over a year.
However, it must be remembered that since the transfer market is open, it is likely that more than one player will change teams before the tournament starts and this could change the ranking of the various teams at the start.
The prize money of the Six Major initially planned for May 2021, as well as the Global Points qualifying to the Six Invitational 2022, will be awarded to teams from all 4 regions based on their performance during Stage 1 of Season 2021. All 4 regions will distribute USD $125.000 (a quarter of the $500.000 Six Major prize money) as follows:
- 1st place: $62,500
- 2nd place: $31,250
- 3rd place: $18,750
- 4th place: $12,500
The top 8 teams of each region at the end of Stage 1 will be awarded the following amounts of points for the Global Standings:
- 1st place: 510
- 2nd place: 390
- 3rd place: 330
- 4th place: 275
- 5th place: 225
- 6th place: 180
