However, Ubisoft have also said that Rainbow Six Siege Outbreak will release on the TTS on February 20, which means it really is not long before PC players will be able to sample some Outbreak gameplay for themselves.

If that is still too long to wait then not to worry as there will be a full reveal for Rainbow Six Siege Outbreak at the Six Invitational on February 18.
