Ubisoft has officially announced the new title for the next game in the long-running Rainbow Six franchise, and it’s not what was leaked a while back. The new game is called Rainbow Six Extraction.
The new Rainbow Six game has a brand new title. Originally called Rainbow Six Quarantine, and then Parasite, it’s now called Rainbow Six Extraction and it still doesn’t have a release date. Bah, humbug, right?
Ubisoft made the announcement today via a short video on its official YouTube channel where producer Antoine Vimal du Monteil revealed the PvE shooter’s new title.
“Our vision is led by a seasoned team of veterans at Ubisoft Montreal and around the world. Since the announcement, the game has grown a lot. As it evolved, the heart of the experience became clearer and clearer; operators uniting against a common enemy, learning about the parasite, how to overcome it and protecting each other every step of the way,” said Antoine Vimal du Monteil during the short clip.
But what’s it all about? Creative Director Patrik Methe explained how the game came to be.
“We took the strong foundations of Rainbow Six Siege and crafted a modern, tactical, co-op shooter where you’ll be facing an always evolving alien threat. You’ll have plenty of different challenges to overcome but you will always have one goal in mind: making sure no one gets left behind. It will be up to you and your squad to decide when to push forward or when to extract. As you will soon discover, extraction is truly the name of the game.”
A bit vague, then, but the general gist is that it’s a multiplayer-focused team-based shooter and we’ll learn plenty more about the game during Ubisoft Forward which takes place on June 12th, 2021.
