Major League Gaming and Ubisoft recently announced that they will be collaborating to bring Rainbow Six Vegas 2 to MLG’s 2008 Pro Circuit, beginning with a launch event for the title in April. The two have also teamed up on the development of a special MLG-themed multiplayer map, and as you can see from the accompanying screenshots, the map takes place at a MLG Pro Circuit event at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Rainbow Six Vegas 2 still doesn’t have an official ship date as of yet, I don’t believe, but is scheduled to come out by month’s end for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

“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.”

“Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas transformed the way gamers play online multiplayer games in the current generation of hardware,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. “The Rainbow Six franchise has been a leader in the world of online multiplayer video games since 1998, and we are proud to have worked with MLG on Vegas 2.”
