Rainbow Six: Extraction, the tactical multiplayer PvE shooter formerly known as Rainbow Six: Quarantine, finally has a release date. It appears we’ll all be inserted into the Back 4 Blood / GFTO / insert-co-op-shooter-of-choice-style game on January 20, 2022.
Extraction was initially due to release on September 16, 2021, but was pushed back to January 2022, partly to deal with some less-than-enthusiastic summer feedback, but also to ensure it wasn’t overtun by all the other shooters crowding the market. Going up against Call of Duty: Vanguard is bad enough, but with a new Battlefield, the aforementioned Left 4 Dead follow-up, and Ubisoft’s own Far Cry 6 all clamoring for attention in the run-up to Thanksgiving, it was perhaps no bad thing to delay Extraction into the new year.
Extraction’s January 20 release date has actually been in plain sight on Ubisoft’s news portal for a few days, but has only just been spotted by VGC. While Ubisoft is yet to formally announce the precise release date for the R6 Siege follow-up, we can be pretty certain that January 20, 2022 is when we can all finally extract ourselves from what’s been a long wait.
Shhh, nobody tell Ubisoft that Elden Ring is launching the day after, or we’ll waiting around forever.
