Esports data company Abios has added live data support for Ubisoft-developed FPS game Rainbow Six: Siege to its offerings.

Users of Abios’ platform will now be able to get live data from Rainbow Six: Siege games as the matches progress. This means that scores, in-game events such as defuses of bombs and similar information will be available to Abios users.

Rainbow Six: Siege is a popular tactical FPS game, developed by Ubisoft. Since its release in 2015 it has become a fan-favourite esports title, with the Rainbow Six Circuit, the game’s flagship esports competition, attracting well-known esports organisations such as NAVI and G2 Esports. The title’s crowing event, the Six Invitational, had a prize pool of $3m (~£2.46m) in 2022.

Abios’ addition of Rainbow Six develops the company’s growing portfolio, which includes Dota 2, CS:GO, Halo and VALORANT, among others. As a data provider, Abios also works with esports organisations such as NAVI and betting companies such as UNIBET, providing them with data for post-match analysis or live score widgets.

“Whether a customer plans to implement up-to-date live scores or support a fantasy league, our data feeds are there to support.” 

The addition of Rainbow Six to Abios’ roster of games comes a few days before Ubisoft announces ‘a new era of Rainbow Six Esports’, as the company put it. It is yet unclear what will the announcement be. According to numbers gathered by Esports Charts, Rainbow Six: Siege has around 270,000-300,000 peak viewers for its Major events.
