Preparation is underway for the Six Invitational 2020, Ubisoft's upcoming annual tournament for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. The event pits the title's top 16 teams over the world champion title, while also providing the first glimpse at Year 5 plans and Year 5 Season 1 update.

The Six Invitational returns with another mid-season event, introducing a new limited-time celebration dubbed the "Road to S.I. 2020." Its arrival brings an ultra-competitive mode based on official Pro League rulesets, alongside the purpose-built Stadium map. That includes a modular kill house situated within a sporting arena, comprised of iconic sites from the existing Rainbow Six Siege map roster.
