Ubisoft has today shared a new update on its highly anticipated tactical shooter Rainbow Six Extraction, announcing that the release date for the Tom Clancy title has now been pushed back to January 2022.
Rainbow Six Extraction was originally slated to launch September 16, but now, the company says the game needs more time. “We are embracing the opportunity to take additional time to bring this vision to life in the way it deserves in January 2022,” notes Ubisoft.
We are delaying the release of Rainbow Six Extraction until January 2022.
We will use this time to ensure that we bring this immersive, cooperative, and thrilling experience to life as we prepare to bring you a truly unique Rainbow Six game.
