Rainbow Six Extraction gets September release date

Players will get to experience the PVE Rainbow Six game sooner than they thought.


Rainbow Six Extraction is the new name for Ubisoft’s Quarantine and players got a look at what awaits them with a CGI trailer. This was also an opportunity for players to learn when Rainbow Six Extraction will be hitting their systems, and that release date is September 16. Check out the trailer below.

In Rainbow Six Extraction, players will be able to use Operators from Siege, but if that character falls during a mission, it won’t be playable until it’s rescued. This should make the PVE title a little bit more stressful and intense, as players will need to weigh up the risks of taking their favorite Operator into a round.

As for player control, there is the option to play as a full squad of three players or solo if you’re so inclined. Extraction will also feature crossplay between all platforms, which means you won’t be struggling to find someone to help you rescue a downed Operator.

There was a lot of Rainbow Six news revealed during the Ubisoft Forward E3 2021 event. While Extraction was certainly the highlight, players also learned of the cross-play and cross-progression feature coming to Siege.

Rainbow Six Extraction is scheduled to release on September 16. Check out the Shacknews E3 2021 page for all the other exciting announcements from today and the rest of the event.
