We have received many surprises since the arrival of 2021, and this year we have seen the historic rise of cryptocurrency as well as the decline of cryptocurrency. But one of the most trending facts remains is that this year is the year of video game delays. And which company to better break the promise of their deadline than our very own Ubisoft.
Recently the game developer announced two disappointing pieces of information. 2021 is the year of video game delays, and Ubisoft has just announced a one-two punch of information that will come as a blow to the gamers.
It announced that the release dates of both Rainbow Six Extraction and Riders Republic are being pushed back. The Riders Republic delay is a relatively minor one, as the game will still arrive in 2021, however, Rainbow Six Extraction is being pushed to early 2022. And here’s the fact, there is still a chance the game may be even further delayed, I mean it’s Ubisoft after all.
Our ambition with Rainbow Six Extraction is to deliver a full-fledged AAA experience that changes the way you play and thinks 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!
Here’s the official word for the Rider Republic development team.
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.
Both Rainbow Six Extraction and Riders Republic are coming to PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Stadia, and Luna.
