Six Invitational 2021 officially postponed due to travel restrictions

After France closed its borders to all non-EU travellers, Ubisoft has been forced to delay the biggest tournament in the Rainbow Six Siege calendar.

Ubisoft has officially postponed the Six Invitational 2021, as the developer looks at “alternative options” for the event. 

The event, which was set to be staged in Paris from 19th February, has been delayed after the French Prime Minister announced the French borders would be closed to all non-EU travellers - preventing international teams from flying to the country.

“Consequently, we have no choice but to postpone the Six Invitational 2021 to a later date,” a blog post from Ubisoft reads. “While we are obviously disappointed that the Six Invitational will no longer go ahead this month as planned, our focus is now on reevaluating the situation and looking for alternative options.

 

They added: “We are working with and listening to the organisations to find the best possible solutions. We will have more details on the exact impact of this decision for rosters and Season 2021 soon.”

It doesn’t seem like they’ll be staging an online alternative either, emphasising the need to have participating teams “in the same physical location” to maintain competitive integrity. 

The delay was strongly rumoured before the announcement, after many teams released statements explaining how they would no longer be able to compete. 

When the Six Invitational 2021 will take place likely depends on when France will reopen its borders, or if they perhaps seek to stage it in another country less affected by the pandemic.
