Ubisoft announced its partners for Phase Two of the Rainbow Six Siege esports revenue sharing Pilot Program. The announcement took place at the recent Six Major Raleigh 2019 and involved the game’s publisher and developer outlining the 14 teams that will become the future of Rainbow Six Siege esports.
Here are the organizations that made the cut.
- G2 Esports
- Team Empire
- Natus Vincere
- PENTA: Operator
- Evil Geniuses
- Spacestation Gaming
- FaZe Clan
- Team Liquid
- INTZ eSports Club
Each of these organizations will get a Pro League bundle that includes “a headgear, a uniform, a weapon skin for a specific Operator, as well as a universal charm.” For every set sold, 30 percent of the net revenue will be equally distributed among the partnered teams. Moreover, 30 percent of the net revenue for every team-branded item will go directly to the organizations, and 30 percent of that sum will be allocated to players.
According to Ubisoft, over 40 esports organizations expressed interest in joining the Pilot Program. The company reviewed its applications together with third-party consultants to ensure that it gets the best partners possible. Phase Two of the Rainbow Six revenue sharing program will last until May 2020.
It’s worth noting only six of the 11 teams participating in the original Pilot Program came back for Phase Two. These teams are Fnatic, Rogue, FaZe Clan, Team Liquid, Evil Geniuses, and PENTA Sports. Another thing to consider is that Ubisoft originally planned to include up to 16 organizations in the esports program, which begs the question, why was that number reduced by two?
Still, revenue sharing is a step in the right direction. Rainbow Six teams will definitely welcome the fact that Ubisoft just made the scene more sustainable.
