Taking an online-only format in the face of the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis, the event will offer up a $50,000 prize pool and kicks off on 29 April. Matches will take place each Tuesday and Wednesday evening from 7.00 pm AEST in a single-round round robin bracket with best-of-two matches (with overtime if needed) across 7 weeks.
The event will include the following teams:
- Team SiNister
- Pittsburgh Knights
- Kanga Esports
The top four teams at the end of the 14 days of play will then duke it out in a double-elimination bracket for the Six Masters 2020 title. Those finals events will take place over 4-5 July.
Rainbow Six Siege is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
