Rainbow Six Extraction Release Date Seemingly Confirmed In Updated Post

Rainbow Six Extraction’s release date appears to have been revealed by Ubisoft in an old post recently updated on the publisher’s official website.

After an update, an older post on Ubisoft’s website appears to have revealed Rainbow Six Extraction’s release date as of January 20, 2022. Rainbow Six Extraction is a sci-fi spinoff of Ubisoft’s highly successful multiplayer tactical shooter, Rainbow Six Siege. It is the next mainline entry in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six series.

Rainbow Six Extraction was first shown off at E3 2019 under the name Rainbow Six Quarantine. In June 2021, Ubisoft officially changed the game’s title to Rainbow Six Extraction to distance the game from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic’s real-world quarantines. Despite the name change, little was known about Rainbow Six Extraction until the Ubisoft Forward at E3 2021, when the game was featured in an extended gameplay demo that revealed new details about the game’s storey and the Archaens, the game’s mysterious parasitic alien foes.

Rainbow Six Extraction will be released on January 20, 2022, according to an updated post on the official Ubisoft website at the time of publication. The original page was created in June 2021 and has been quietly updated since then. Because Ubisoft has yet to confirm this date elsewhere officially, it’s unclear whether the change in release information was published by mistake or on purpose. However, the updated news post indicates that an official announcement is likely to come soon in either case.

The new Rainbow Six Extraction release date corresponds to Ubisoft’s previously announced January 2022 release window. Rainbow Six Extraction was originally scheduled to release in September 2021. Still, Ubisoft announced a delay in July, citing the need for more development time to “deliver a full-fledged AAA experience that changes the way you play and think about cooperative games.” This was the third time the title’s release date had been pushed back.

Because the game is only a few months away from its official release date, the lack of a specific date from Ubisoft has sparked speculation that another delay may be in the works. Given that the publisher has recently released several new trailers that give a more detailed look at Rainbow Six Extraction’s storey and features and the addition of a release date to its website, the game appears to be on track release without further delays. Hopefully, the extra time provided by the earlier delays meant that the game’s developers could polish it to the high quality expected. Players would get a Rainbow Six spinoff that is well worth the wait.

Rainbow Six Extraction will be released in January 2022 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Google Stadia.
