Ubisoft and esports data provider Grid have signed a multi-year exclusive partnership to support the Rainbow Six Siege competitive ecosystem. Grid streamlines access to real-time competitive data for broadcasts, monitoring competitive integrity, coaching and betting. Additionally, the two companies hope to fuel Rainbow Six Siege’s growth through this partnership.
The granular, live data will only be available through Grid’s data platform, starting with this weekend’s Blast R6 Major Atlanta.
“The legacy of Rainbow Six Siege is a great foundation to build upon and we are excited to make esports game data part of this incredible ecosystem,” said Moritz Maurer, CEO and founder of Grid Esports.
Going forward, this partnership covers all major global and regional tournaments for Rainbow Six Siege’s extensive ecosystem. Currently, Ubisoft supports nine regional ecosystems: Europe, North America, Brazil, Japan, South Korea, LATAM, Asia, Oceania and MENA. Moreover, the ongoing Blast R6 Major Atalanta is broadcasting across 14 languages. Grid’s data will help these broadcasts provide region-specific content and context for fans.
