The team behind Rainbow Six Extraction has announced a four-month delay for the game that was due to premiere on September 16. It is worth noting Ubisoft this time did not mention the impact of the pandemic as one of the reasons for delaying the title, and that it directly spoke of needing more time.
Rainbow Six Extraction, has already changed its name a couple of times and has also been delayed twice. It was originally due to arrive in March 2020, but was delayed until fiscal year 2021 to 2022. The aforementioned date was revealed at E3, and now it will be in January 2022, so it is still in fiscal 2021 to 2022.
Two new delays
The Ubisoft release says the following:
We are taking the opportunity to take more time to bring this vision to life in the way it deserves in January 2022. We are confident that this will ensure that Rainbow Six Extraction is the immersive, cooperative and exciting experience we set out to create, and the one you aspire to play.
It is not the only bad news as Riders Republic has also been delayed, although not by that long. Originally it was going to arrive on September 2 and now it will arrive on October 28, almost two months late, but at least it will not go to 2022. Also, we must not hide that there is a lot of expectation with Rainbow Six Extraction and not so much with this sports title, so the ad went somewhat unnoticed.
In any case, the wave of delays continues, more and more titles remain for next year and it should not surprise us that more delays are announced for a long time. ANDl release from Riders Republic developers It is similar to R6 Extraction, the experience is not what you expected, so it will be polished more.
Both games will arrive on their new dates for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and PC.
