Ubisoft’s zombie-filled Rainbow Six Extraction won’t be releasing this year as the publisher hands more time to the developers.
If you had hopes of getting together with your mates for some tactical zombie action with Rainbow Six Extraction, you’ll want to park those plans a little longer as Ubisoft has delayed the game until next year.
Thankfully, the delay isn’t that long. Rather than releasing this year, the game will now launch in January 2022, so it’s still only six months away, give or take a couple of weeks.
The reason for the delay is that Ubisoft wants to “bring this vision to life in the way it deserves” and so the publisher is giving the development team more time to work on the game.
It’s slightly disappointing, sure, but the reality is that we’re still living through a pandemic and Ubisoft’s development teams are not working as they normally do – very few developers are. Delays are inevitable, but if it means a better game, it’s worth it as I won’t have to spend six months writing about a game being constantly updated to fix it.
