Ubisoft has announced that Rainbow Six Extraction won't be making its proposed September release date, the 3-player squad-based PvE shooter now delayed until January 2022, as developer Ubisoft Montreal aims to “deliver a full-fledged AAA experience”.

The studio states that Extraction will deliver unique features like “Missing In Action” and evolving alien enemy threat “The Sprawl”, with “every mission" set to be “a tense and challenging experience” featuring elite Rainbow Six operators (spotlighted in the videos below).

“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,” says Ubisoft Montreal. “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.”

Rainbow Six Extraction will be coming to PlayStation, Xbox, and PC sometime in January 2022, then.

  • 'deliver a full-fledged AAA experience', Wait, they gonna ask full price for this insult to Tom Clancy and Rainbow Six?
  • @Unger Well, it is Ubisoft we're talking about, so of course they will, they're getting as bad as EA and Activision when it comes to milking a franchise and delivering a sub-standard product. In a way, it's a good thing Tom Clancy is no longer with us to see how Ubisoft are tarnishing his name and work.
  • This is why you should always wait until your game is 100% complete and ready to ship, before announcing the release date - that way there's far less chance of something going wrong and causing a delay.
