If you were looking forward to playing Rainbow Six Extraction in the near future I got some bad news, Ubisoft has pushed the date from Sept. 16 to Jan. 2022.
In the blog post revealing the delay, Ubisoft says the additional time is needed to deliver the experience both they and players want.
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. With unique features like Missing In Action or The Sprawl, every mission is set to be a tense and challenging experience in which you’ll lead the elite operators of Rainbow Six in a fight against a lethal and evolving alien threat.
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.
We look forward to sharing more with you very soon!Ubisoft
While this is sure to make some players unhappy, it’s hard to argue with a delay designed to improve the initial experience. Hopefully it will be worth it when Rainbow Six Extraction releases in Jan. 2022 for PlayStation 4/5, PC, Stadia and Xbox One/Series.
