Rainbow Six Extraction Pushed Back to 2022

The year of delays

The next big entry in the Rainbow Six series was revealed no more than a month ago, with several rumors and leaks emerging and leading us to understand the concept of Rainbow Six Extraction beforehand. Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, Extraction pits operators against alien infestations and everything of the like. The game was initially scheduled to release on September 6, 2021, but that prospect has been laid to rest. 

Ubisoft has just announced that they’ve decided to delay the game to January 2022, which is three months ahead of what was promised to us earlier. A message from the Rainbox Six Extraction development team reads, “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.”

Realistically speaking, this doesn’t come off as a debilitating heartbreak. 2021 has seen many delays, including Deathloop and Back 4 Blood. Major upcoming Sony releases such as God of War Ragnarok are imminent to follow suit, despite hinting at a release for 2021. 

In other news, Riders Republic has also been delayed from September 2 to October 28, as the corresponding development team stated recently. “To ensure we can deliver the best game for all players, we’ve made the tough decision to delay our release date from September 2 to October 28. This will give us more time to fine tune the experience and give you another chance to jump in before launch and provide feedback,” says the team working on the upcoming sports racer.

Calling the game an “open-world extreme sports paradise,” Ubisoft announced Riders Republic back in 2020 with a release date of February 2021. It seems that fans and followers will have to wait a couple of more months to enjoy the 50-player onslaught first-hand.
