Rainbow Six Extraction announced
New spinoff co-operative game coming this September
Ubisoft has formally announced Rainbow Six Extraction, formerly known as Rainbow Six Quarantine, as the next mainline game in the Rainbow Six franchise.
With development being led by Ubisoft Montreal, Rainbow Six Extraction is a PvE co-op experience where you and up to two other players can form a squad composed of Rainbow Six Operators who have joined Ash, Mira, and Thermite to form the Rainbow Exogenous Analysis and Containment Team (REACT).
To confront and eventually contain a growing alien threat known as Archæans, your squad can choose from a roster of 18 Rainbow Six Operators, each with their own set of gadgets, weapons, and abilities. 12 maps are set across four regions in the United States, with procedurally generated challenges, a diverse set of enemies, and infestations with increasing difficulty the further you go in the map.
After completing the mission within each containment sub-zone, you’ll have the option to extract your squad and net the rewards you’ve earned so far, or venture deeper into containment and risk what you’ve earned to confront tougher enemies and earn greater rewards.
Rainbow Six Extraction is coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, the Ubisoft Store on Windows PC, and Stadia on September 16; is included with Ubisoft+, the Ubisoft subscription service; and will support cross-play and cross-save across all platforms. If you already own Rainbow Six Siege and purchase Rainbow Six Extraction, its entire roster of 18 Operators will be unlocked for you in Rainbow Six Siege, along with a United Front cosmetic bundle for both games.
