Notably, representing Southeast Asia as APAC League finalists, Singapore based team Giants Gaming will be returning to compete again in this year’s Six Invitational.
The competition will gather 19 teams from all Rainbow Six Esports regions, in a LAN environment following strict sanitary measures, with no audience on site.
- May 11th -16th: Group Stage.
- May 19th – 23rd: Playoffs, broadcast from the Palais Brongniart, a historical venue at the very heart of Paris, France.

Any changes to the ongoing situation are being monitored to ensure appropriate actions are taken.
