R6 Share 2.jpeg

R6 Share, formerly known as the Pilot Program, is a revenue-sharing deal between Ubisoft Entertainment and select esport teams in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. The program offers unique Uniforms, Headgear, Weapon Skins, and Charms to players that are themed around the Pro League and esport teams participating in the program. Revenue obtained from the purchase of these items is then shared with teams participating in the program.

Phase 1[]

Phase 1 of the Pilot Program was first announced on June 5, 2018 and launched on September 4, 2018 to coincide with the release of Operation Grim Sky. It involved eleven teams across Europe, North America, Latin America, and Asia-Pacific. All new teams to the Rainbow Six Pro League were automatically chosen for the Pilot Program. Additionally, veteran teams were chosen based on their League growth, experience, and competition results.

Each team originally had a unique weapon skin and charm that was themed around their team. Two team, SK Gaming and Vitality, later left the program. The remaining eight teams had themed uniforms and headgears created and were released on December 4, 2018 alongside the Operation Wind Bastion expansion.[1]

Revenue sharing functioned in two ways based on Pilot Team Bundles and Pro League Bundles.

  • Pilot Team Themed Bundles - Had 30% of all net revenue went to the respective pilot program team.
  • Pro League Bundles - Of the 30% of all net revenue, 9% went towards the Six Invitational 2019 prize pool while the remaining 21% was split equally between each pilot program team.

Pilot Program Phase 2.jpg

Phase 2 of the Pilot Program started on September 9, 2019 alongside the release of the Operation Ember Rise and concluded in May 2020. It currently involves fourteen teams across all four regions, with two more teams expected to be added to the program in the future. Existing and new teams had to submit an application to be considered for Phase 2 of the program. This application held questions relating to a teams roster, background, community support, involvement, promotion, etc. As with phase 1, each team had a uniquely themed headgear, uniform, weapon skin, and charm created.[2] The second wave of weapon skins for the program was released on November 14, 2019.[3] The third wave was released on February 18, 2020.[4]

Revenue-sharing functions slightly differently compared to Phase 1

  • Pilot Team Themed Bundles - 30% of all net revenue goes to the respective pilot program team.
  • Pro League Bundles - 30% of all net revenue is split equally amongst member of the Pilot Program
  • 30% of net revenues from the Road to SI event goes toward the Six Invitational 2020 prize pool. Should a Pilot Program team win prize money at the Six Invitational, the portion of that money funded by the Road to SI event revenues is split evenly with 50% to the organization and 50% to players.

Phase 3 of the Pilot Program was announced on February 16, 2020 in the Official Rainbow Six Discord server during the Six Invitational 2020. On September 7, 2020, it was announced that the Pilot Program would be rebranded to R6 Share.[5] Phase 3 launched on September 22, 2020.[6]

The program expanded to support 42 organizations, including all organizations participating in each of the pro-level regional league. More choices in bespoke cosmetics for organizations are offered along with support for teams, players and content creators. Additionally, phase 3 will run for the next four years until March 1, 2024 to allow organizations long-term flexibility in their participation.

The initial 42 organizations were selected through qualitative in-depth process conducted with the assistance of an independent third party and split into three Tiers. Each organization is assessed every three months and ranked against other organizations in their Tier based on a set of performance indicators: the performance of their in-game items, the viewership of their matches, the amount of support they provide to their players, and the performance of their communications around Rainbow Six.

Starting in August 2021, each Tier will be readjusted once a year. Organizations will be promoted or demoted to different Tiers to more accurately reflect their recent contributions to the game's community. Tiers and ranks will determine what level of support an organization receives from Ubisoft and the amount they will earn from a Performance Pool that will pay out additional shared revenues to organizations depending on their rank.

The program shares 30% of revenue for purchased R6 Share Items with organizations through the following methods:

  • Major MTX: An Operator Bundle for the November Six Major will be available at the launch of the new Rainbow Six Siege season. 30% of the net revenue from these items will contribute to the prize pool of the Major.
  • League MTX: For every set of League MTX sold, 30% of the net revenue will be split 4 ways between R6 SHARE organizations in Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3. A Performance Pool is the 4th beneficiary, which will distribute the revenue it accumulates amongst top ranked organizations within each Tier.
  • Team MTX: For every team-branded item sold, 30% of the net revenue will be shared with the organization whose branded item is purchased.
  • For every team-branded item sold, the R6 SHARE organizations will receive 30% of the proceeds from their respective team-branded items. Moreover, 30% of the organization's revenue share will contribute to the organization's players and content creators.
  • For every regional league set sold, 30% of the net revenue will be split 4 ways between Tier 1 organizations, Tier 2, Tier 3 and the Performance Pool. For every Six Majors starting with the Six November Major, an Operator bundle will be produced. 30% of the net revenue from these items will contribute to the prize pool of the corresponding Six Major event.
  • Road to S.I. Battle Pass: 30% of the net revenue from the Road to Six Invitational Battle Pass will go towards the Six Invitational prize pool.
  • For revenue generated by the Six Major items and the Road to S.I. Battle Pass contributing to the respective prize pools of those events, if a team wins part of that prize money in the competition, then 70% of this prize money will go to the players and 30% to the organization.
