Ubisoft quietly reveals Rainbow Six Extraction’s release date

Ubisoft, the developer and publisher behind the Tom Clancy franchise of games, has quietly announced the release date of the series’ upcoming title, Rainbow Six Extraction, it seems. The game, which was initially schedule to launch on September 16, will release for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PS4, PC, and Stadia on January 20, 2022.

The game’s release date was announced through what seems to be an update to its E3 announcement post on Ubisoft’s website. The post, which was originally put up this past June, was updated somewhat recently to include the game’s new release date. Ubisoft has not made a formal announcement just yet, but we have reached out to the company for comment and will update this article when we receive a response.

Rainbow Six Extraction is a PvE tactical shooter that borrows a good number of mechanics from the franchise’s wildly popular competitive title, Rainbow Six Siege. Players can fill the shoes of different operators, each of whom has their own special abilities and gear. However, instead of fighting another team of operators, players are squared off against a strange alien threat that is slowly taking over chunks of land.

The game’s release date lands it square in the middle of what will be an extremely busy start for 2022 in the world of games. That same month will also see the launches of Monster Hunter RiseElden Ring (on January 21), and Pokemon Legends Arceus. The pace of games doesn’t slow until March, with February packed with releases including SifuDying Light 2, and Horizon Forbidden West.

Skate: release date speculation, trailers, gameplay, and more
A skateboarder approaching a ramp.

It's been over 10 years since we got the last game in the hit Skate series, and ever since, fans of the series have been asking when EA will finally return to this unique take on the skateboarding genre. In that time, the skating genre has seen a major resurgence. Not only has the Tony Hawk series made a comeback with the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2 remake, but other games like Skater XL and Skatebird have appeared to fill in this gap in the market.

However, no game has quite filled the void that Skate filled. Thankfully, we do know that Skate is happening. First announced way back during EA Play in 2020, there has been precious little information about this highly anticipated return to a more grounded style of a skateboarding video game. Even so, there are still a few details we've learned about what this next Skate game will look like and when we can hope to finally play it. Here's everything we know about Skate.
