Rainbow Six Extraction Release Date: When does this new co-op shooter drop?

Alright, Operators. It's time to assemble your team and get ready to fight for humanity. Rainbow Six's brightest and boldest are gathering together under the REACT banner to fight back against an unusual Alien threat that's going to push you to your limits. Rainbow Six Extraction is going to do things a little differently and it could be a fantastic exploration into the Rainbow Six franchise.

If you're wondering when the game is actually coming out, look no further. We have everything you need to know about the release date attributed to Rainbow Six Extraction below.

GAME PASS - The news we've all been waiting for...

We weren't expecting this, but it looks like Rainbow Six Extraction will be available on Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass PC on Day One! The official announcement was made alongside the announcement that Ubisoft+ was coming to Xbox consoles.

It's not going to be linked to Game Pass, like EA Play, but it's going to be available in a similar capacity. Here's what has been said so far...

Rainbow Six Siege is also being added to the service and there are reports that Ubisoft+ is going to be available on Xbox consoles soon.

When does Rainbow Six Extraction come out?

Rainbow Six Extraction is expected to launch on January 20th, 2022. The PlayStation Store page for the title has set 00:00 GMT as an unlock time - so, we're expecting this to be the same on the Xbox Store and on both Ubisoft Connect and the Epic Games Store.

If you're looking to pick up a physical copy, then you'll need to check with your local retailer to see if they're doing a midnight launch. If not, you'll have to wait until the store opens to grab your copy!

Rainbow Six Extraction is available on the following platforms:

  • PlayStation 5
  • PlayStation 4
  • Xbox One
  • Xbox Series X|S
  • PC
    • Via Stadia
    • Via Ubisoft Connect
    • Via Epic Games Store

STACK UP! - Are you ready to face a new threat?

Currently, there are no details when it comes to the download size required for this game. Rainbow Six Extraction is going to launch with 18 Operators, 69 weapons, 12 large dynamic maps, and 25 gadgets. With this amount of content, we're expecting the game to be similar in size to Rainbow Six Siege. However, this isn't a bad thing - Siege has been shrinking over the last few months; each new update is further optimising the files to create a more manageable overall size.

We believe that Extraction will need about 50GB of storage space at launch - but, we'll update you with accurate figures when they're available.
