Ubisoft’s Riders Republic and Rainbow Six Extraction Get Delayed

A pair of upcoming Ubisoft games, Rider’s Republic and Rainbow Six Extraction, have been hit with yet another delay; short ones though.

After having multiple delays each, and getting lenghty/impressive showings during Ubisoft’s E3 showcase, fans have been excited to dive into Riders Republic and Rainbow Six Extraction. Sadly, the wait got a little bit longer once again.

Today, Ubisoft has announce both games have been hit with a delay. Riders Republic will now arrive on October 28th (instead of September), with Extraction now slated for January 2022. All around, these are pretty minor delays, so it’s hard to complain about, but I’m sure people will anyway.

Here’s what Ubisoft had to say about both delays:

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.

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.
