Rainbow Six Extraction Release Date Leaked By Ubisoft

Ubisoft’s new PVE co-op shooter, Rainbow Six Extraction, may have just had its release date leaked [via Video Games Chronicle].

According to an updated post on Ubisoft’s website, the release date will be January 20th, 2022. The game was originally planned for a September launch before being pushed back to January, and now we’ve got what seems to be a reliable date for the game.

Ubisoft hasn’t actually confirmed the date themselves, but the updated post from June 2021 seems to suggest an announcement is on the way soon.

Tactical Alien Killing

Rainbow Six Extraction is a spin off of Rainbow Six Siege, Ubisoft’s popular team-based tactical shooter. It was originally delayed back in July along with Rider’s Republic, another Ubisoft title, but a release date hasn’t been officially confirmed yet.

Extraction will focus on tactical PVE gameplay, where players face off against an alien threat with their squad. Up to three players can join together to fight against a growing alien menace. Players must complete various objectives while trying to survive, and you can choose to progress through increasingly challenging maps to get better rewards or extract early to leave with what you’ve got.

Extraction will launch on Xbox Series X, PS5, PS4, Xbox One and PC. Admittedly, I wasn’t blown away when it was first revealed, but it’ll be interesting to see how it stacks up against its competition. If the leaked release date is anything to go by, we won’t have to wait too long to find out.
