Ubisoft has announced that it is teaming up with BLAST to support and grow the Rainbow Six: Siege competitive scene going forward. The tournament circuit, which will be known as BLAST R6 will launch during the week of March 6, and will be split across nine unique regions, including Europe, North America, and Latin America, and will feature two Majors ahead of the annual Six Invitational.

As noted in a press release, we're told that Stage 1 will run until May when the first Major of the year is held in Copenhagen. The circuit will then pick up soon after and run until Stage 2 concludes in November with a US-based Major. Then circuit play will soon pick back up, ahead of February 2024's Six Invitational, which will be held in Brazil.

The Majors themselves will be split into three phases, where a total of 24 teams will compete at each event for a share of a $750,000 prize pool. Teams will be scored on their performances at Majors, with these points being attributed to whether a team qualifies for the Six Invitational.

As for where you can watch BLAST R6 when it starts next month, you can follow the action here.
