Release date, download size, & latest news

It’s almost time to gather your team of operators and tackle the unusual alien threat looming over the world in Rainbow Six Extraction; the only question we have is how long do we have to wait for this.

Rainbow Six Extraction was severely delayed last year, but now we’re staring at the release date barrel with no way around it. This is when Rainbow Six Extraction will launch and everything you need to know …

When is Rainbow Six Extraction coming out?

Rainbow Six Extraction is expected to launch on January 20, 2022. The PlayStation Store page for the title has set 00:00 GMT as the unlock time, so we expect it to be the same on the Xbox Store and on the Ubisoft Connect and Epic Games Store.

If you are looking to get a physical copy, you will need to check with your local retailer to see if they are doing a midnight release. If not, you will have to wait until the store opens to get your copy!

Rainbow Six Extraction is available on the following platforms:

  • Playstation 5
  • Playstation 4
  • Xbox One
  • Xbox Series X | S
  • personal computer
    • Through Stadia
    • Through Ubisoft Connect
    • Via Epic Games Store

PILE! – Are you ready to face a new threat?

Currently, there are no details on the required download size for this game. Rainbow Six Extraction will launch with 18 operators, 69 weapons, 12 large dynamic maps, and 25 gadgets. With this amount of content, we expect the game to be similar in size to Rainbow Six Siege. However, this is not bad: Siege has been shrinking in recent months; each new update further optimizes files to create a more manageable overall size.

We believe that Extraction will need approximately 50GB of storage space at launch, but will update it with accurate figures when available.
