Ubisoft promises to deliver an unforgettable Rainbow Six Extraction experience in 2022

In the latest blog post, Ubisoft announced the news and also shed light on what has compiled it to take this step. The studio stated that the previous timeline of September felt a bit rushed, as the team needs more time. Intricate aspects like The Sprawl, Missing in Action and other features, need more attention than the studio assumed. This fact alone has compelled it to push the title for a much later release. The developmental team wants to iron out the entire game in order to deliver the promised AAA experience.

“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.
