A new report estimates that the Battle Royale genre will generate over $20 billion in revenue in 2019, almost doubling from 2018 and over 10 times as much as 2017.

Following the success of PlayersUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite: Battle Royale, a number of AAA console titles like Battlefield V and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will enter the market, causing a major boom.

Fortnite itself is estimated to have made over $1 billion in revenue so far on in-game purchases alone, and the spread of PUBG and Fortnite on PC, console and mobile has made BR available to every type of gamer.

New challengers are also dropping in to the BR genre, such as Realm Royale, Islands of the Nyne and Fear the Wolves, looking to topple the market leaders.

But it is the ‘premium console’ titles like Black Ops 4 and Battlefield V, that will really drive the revenue streams, according to a report from SuperData.

Battle Royale has quickly become the talk of the games industry. With massively successful titles like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite: Battle Royale,  new entrants like Realm Royale, and Battle Royale integration into traditional AAAs like Battlefield V, the genre is one of the biggest trends in games.

Black Ops 4’s ‘Blackout’ BR mode, if executed right, is being tipped as the game to have the greatest ability to put a dent in Fortnite’s dominance.

Because the majority of Battle Royale players are shown to have previously played shooter games the most, Call of Duty and Battlefield will already be fan favorites for many Fortnite/PUBG players.

This will mean attracting them to their BR modes will be easier, than say for the brand new BR titles Islands of the Nyne or Fear the Wolves.

The report also shows the statistics for livestream viewing on Twitch, which is known to be dominated by Fortnite as it surged past the likes of League of Legends.

Rainbow Six: Siege’s next massive event, the Six November 2020 Major, is starting soon and the best teams from all four corners of the globe will duke it out to determine who is the cream of the crop in each region.

Rainbow Six: Siege is thrilling to play, but it’s even more intense to watch. The nature of the cat-and-mouse gameplay makes it an absolute spectacle, especially when you’re watching the best players and teams in the world.

The Six November 2020 Major is the next premier event in the professional scene. A stacked lineup of teams will be pitted against each other in separate regional divisions to determine who is the best.

If that’s not enough, it also has a global prize pool of $500,000 split across each region. The Six November 2020 Major will happen in four different stages throughout the upcoming weeks.

If you’re as excited to watch it as we are, here’s everything you need to know.

It’s been a while since the last live Rainbow Six: Siege event due to the pandemic.

Ubisoft will host all of the matches on their Twitch channel which can be found here. The schedule is organized in a way where there will only be one series on at any given time. That means you won’t have to have multiple tabs and streams open. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

Six November 2020 Major teams and regions

The Rainbow Six: Siege November Major 2020 was originally supposed to take place in Europe. However, due to the ongoing pandemic, it was divided into an online event split across each region.

Unfortunately, that means there is no group stage. Instead, there will be four teams in Latin America, Europe, and North Americal, and six teams in Asia-Pacific.

Other than that, it will follow a traditional double-elimination format with best-of-three series and a best-of-five grand final. Here’s a list of all the teams in each region.
