Rainbow Six Extraction: Release postponed to 2022

Rainbow Six Extraction

The fans of the co-op shooter Rainbow Six Extraction have to be patient a little longer than previously thought. As publisher Ubisoft announced in a recent blog entry, the action game will no longer appear as planned in the course of this year. Instead, you have to wait until 2022.

A statement from the developers states that the team will need a little more time to complete. Among other things, it wants to use this to achieve and guarantee the highest possible level of quality.

"We welcome the opportunity to receive additional time to bring this vision to life in a way that it deserves it - in January 2022. We believe this will ensure that Rainbow Six Extraction will be the immersive, collaborative and engaging experience we planned and expected from the start. We can hardly expect to show you more very soon. "

It is therefore clear that Rainbow Six Extraction - previously known as Rainbow Six Quarantine - in January 2022 for the PC and consoles will come onto the market - a specific release date has not yet been set. Incidentally, it is not the first time that Ubisoft has had to postpone the release of the co-op shooter. The action game was originally announced in June 2019 and should actually be released around the beginning of 2020. However, there were always delays. Let's hope that this will be over in January 2022.

Ubisoft delays 'Rainbow Six Extraction' to January 2022

Ubisoft has delayed its two big September releases. Both Rainbow Six Extraction and Riders Republic won’t make their previously announced release dates, the company shared in separate blog posts on Friday. Originally scheduled to come out on September 16th, Ubisoft now plans to release Extraction in January 2022. Meanwhile, it has pushed Riders Republic from September 2nd to October 28th.

Of the two, Extraction is the more significant delay given the popularity of Rainbow Six Siege and the timeframe involved. “Our ambition with Rainbow Six Extraction is to deliver a full-fledged AAA experience that changes the way you play and think about cooperative games,” Ubisoft said. “We are embracing the opportunity to take additional time to bring this vision to life in the way it deserves in January 2022. We are confident this will ensure Rainbow Six Extraction is the immersive, cooperative, and thrilling experience we set out to create, and the one you aspire to play.”

As for the latter game, Ubisoft said the delay will “give us more time to fine tune the experience and give you another chance to jump in before launch and provide feedback.” At its Ubisoft Forward event in June, the company said players would get a chance to beta test Riders Republic before release.

Neither delay is the first for Rainbow Six Extraction and Riders Republic. The latter was originally supposed to come out at the start of 2021. However, Extraction has had a more complicated development. Ubisoft first announced the game at E3 2019, at which point it was known as Rainbow Six Quarantine. At that point, it was supposed to come out in 2020, but then that didn’t happen. Ubisoft then didn't say much about the game until it revealed it was considering a name change.
