Rainbow Six Extraction Delayed Until 2022, Rider's Republic Also Pushed Back

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. With unique features like Missing In Action or The Sprawl, every mission is set to be a tense and challenging experience in which you’ll lead the elite operators of Rainbow Six in a fight against a lethal and evolving alien threat.
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.

The game had been slated for release on September 16, as revealed at Ubisoft's E3 presentation.

Extraction's title was revealed shortly beforehand, with the game previously being known as Rainbow Six: Quarantine, and then Rainbow Six: Parasite.

Rider's Republic, Ubisoft's extreme sports mash-up, has also been delayed, but will still arrive in 2021.

We can’t wait for you all to hit the Republic in our upcoming beta! This will be the first time you get to go hands-on in this massive multiplayer playground and we are looking forward to hearing what you think.
To ensure we can deliver the best game for all players, we've made the tough decision to delay our release date from September 2 to October 28. This will give us more time to fine tune the experience and give you another chance to jump in before launch and provide feedback.
