Today, Ubisoft announced that the eight best teams in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will compete in the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Pro League Season 3 Finals next week in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The finals bring together four different regions all competing for a prize from the $275,000 prize pool.
This tournament will mark the first time that the four regions – Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and North America – are all brought together to compete. Among those teams, Evil Geniuses joins the Pro League starting in the Season 3 Finals. “We are very happy to welcome a team as prestigious as Evil Geniuses into the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Pro League, one of the most renowned esports team”, said François-Xavier Dénièle, Esports Director, Ubisoft EMEA. “It is a strong signal of the Pro League’s growth towards a stronger and more global model.”
