Today Major League Gaming announced that it will collaborate with Ubisoft on the development of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2.
The new Rainbow Six title will actually feature an "MLG Map" that depicts an MLG event at the Las Vegas Convention Center. MLG and Ubisoft have collaborated on the development of the map, which is specifically tailored to the MLG Pro Circuit and with pro gaming in mind.
"We were thrilled that Ubisoft chose MLG to collaborate on the development of a map specially designed for competitive gamers," said Matthew Bromberg, President and CEO of Major League Gaming. "Rainbow Six was a terrific addition to our Pro Circuit last year, and we can't wait to turn our millions of Pro Circuit, online and TV fans onto this new game."
MLG will subsequently support Ubisoft by including Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2 in its 2008 Pro Circuit. The multi-city MLG Pro Circuit, which will be covered by ESPN.com, kicks off April 11, 2008 at the Meadowlands Expo Center outside of New York City.
