Grid launches Rainbow Six Siege Data Portal for esports teams

Esports data infrastructure platform Grid plans to launch the Rainbow Six Siege Data Portal in the coming weeks. The R6DP will automatically provide esports match data to professional teams competing in the Blast R6 esports ecosystem. Access will start in the coming weeks during Stage 1 of the R6 2024 Season, which leads into the upcoming R6 Manchester Major, May 16-26. 

“Providing our professional teams with access to accurate, reliable data is a key step towards building a data-driven ecosystem for R6 Esports.  We’re thrilled to partner with GRID on the establishment of official BLAST R6 data assets and we can’t wait to see our professional teams use the R6 Siege Data Portal to elevate their play,” said David Parent, senior manager, global esports business development at Ubisoft.

Powering data-driven esports

The R6DP will provide professional esports teams access to critical match information to help coaches and players. Rather than individual teams setting up systems to ingest and access in-game data, the R6DP streamlines access across the Rainbow Six Siege competitive ecosystem.

Accurate in-game match data can help teams make smarter decisions when evaluating player performance or analyzing in-game strategies. The R6DP includes an analytics console, downloadable data files, documentation, tutorials and user support.

“Rainbow Six Siege is such a highly tactical game where in-game data access is critical for teams to employ the best strategies. We’re proud to be partnered with Ubisoft on their journey to create incredible esports experiences and provide technology to enhance the competition through access to the official match data for their professional teams,” said Moritz Mauer, founder and CEO of Grid.

Grid and R6 esports partnership

The R6DP is part of Grid’s multi-year partnership with Ubisoft as the title’s exclusive esports data platform for Rainbow Six esports. The agreement kicked off in October 2023 where commercial partners first acquired data access for the 2023 Blast R6 Atlanta Major.

Rainbow Six Siege is in the middle of its second Renaissance. While critics and players panned at Rainbow Six Siege at launch in December 2015, Ubisoft revitalized the tactical FPS to a thriving esport. In recent years, the title has experienced a new period of growth, thanks in part to the rise of Jynxzi. Last month, Jynxzi’s co-stream of the Six Invitational in Sâo Paulo set records for both the esport and Jynxzi. The R6 Invitational set a new record of 521,349 peak viewers and Jynxzi became Twitch’s most watched streamer in February for the first time.

Grid has rolled out data portals for other esports, but this is the first time it is working with a developer other than Riot on one. The team launched the Valorant Data Portal (VDP) in 2022 and the League of Legends Data Portal (LDP) in 2023. Riot acquired an equity stake in Grid as a part of a strategic partnership.

Access to data vetted by a trusted third-party provider is vital for a number of key stakeholders. Notably, Grid’s data is a valuable resource to third-party betting providers. This partnership allows Grid to serve as a mediator between game publishers and these end-users.

Grid is attending Game Developers Conference this weekend. Attendees can find them at booth S568.
