Ubisoft has announced that a couple of their fall 2021 video game releases are getting delayed.
First up is Ubisoft Montreal’s Rainbow Six Extraction which has been delayed from September 16 and will now launch on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC in January 2022. The team says they simply need a bit more time in order to polish the experience up. Here is their message:
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 look forward to sharing more with you very soon!
The other game getting delayed is Ubisoft Annecy’s Riders Republic although the wait for this one won’t be as long. The game was supposed to launch on September 2 but will now launch on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC on October 28. The team says that the almost two-month delay will allow them to better fine tune the game for its release. Here is their message:
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.
We’ll have more to share soon, so stay tuned!
