On Friday, Ubisoft announced that they have pushed back the release date for two of its upcoming titles, Rainbow Six Extraction and Riders Republic. The former will now release early next year, while the latter will still be releasing this fall.
Rainbow Six Extraction Release Date
Formerly known by the name Rainbow Six Quarantine, the co-op alien shooter Rainbow Six Extraction was initially set to release September 16, 2021. Extraction will now launch in January 2022, according to an announcement from Ubisoft. No reason was given for the delay.
“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,” reads the announcement. “We are embracing the opportunity to take additional time to bring this vision to life in the way it deserves in January 2022. We are confident this will ensure Rainbow Six Extraction is the immersive, cooperative, and thrilling experience we set out to create, and the one you aspire to play.”
Riders Republic Release Date
Ubisoft has also delayed their upcoming extreme sports game Riders Republic, albeit only by a few weeks. Initially slated for release on September 2, Riders Republic will now release on October 28. Ubisoft is gearing up for a Riders Republic beta ahead of launch and needs additional time to get the game ready. The delay gives the development team “more time to fine tune the experience,” and give fans “another chance to jump in before launch and provide feedback.”
