Rainbow Six Extraction will be available on Xbox Game Pass Day One, Ubisoft has confirmed. That is not the only news as the publisher has also announced that Ubisoft+ will be coming to Xbox in the future as well. Full details regarding Ubisoft+ launching on Xbox have yet to be confirmed including dates and how it will work. There is either the option of Ubisoft+ existing as a separate paid subscription on Xbox platforms, or going down the EA Play route and being bundled in with an Xbox Game Pass subscription.
“By making Rainbow Six Extraction available to Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members on the day and date of its launch via Xbox Game Pass, we’re demonstrating that we believe in the value and choice that game subscriptions offer to players,” said Chris Early, Ubisoft’s Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development. “Rainbow Six Extraction for Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members is just the beginning. Ultimately, we will offer the Ubisoft+ subscription service to Xbox owners so that they can enjoy the full extent of our Ubisoft+ game library, including new releases, on their consoles.”
“With Rainbow Six Extraction, Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members are getting another blockbuster added to their library on the same day the title launches,” said Sarah Bond, Corporate Vice President, Game Creator Experience and Ecosystem at Xbox. “And because Rainbow Six Siege will be on both Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass as well, the Rainbow Six community and fans of tactical shooters will have plenty to look forward to playing together, no matter where they play.”
Rainbow Six Extraction was originally known as Rainbow Six Quarantine, and that was revealed back in 2019 with a view for it to be released in 2020. Unsurprisingly, the game was delayed then too. Rainbow Six Extraction is a PvE experience where teams of three face off against an alien threat known as the Sprawl, in an effort to contain and eradicate it as well as rescue Operators that can then be added to the roster. Rainbow Six Extraction will be available on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Luna, and Stadia. The game will be available on January 20th, 2022.
