Ever since Operation Chimera in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege in 2018, set the foundation for new direction that Ubisoft wanted to take the franchise. Previously known as “Outbreak”, a 3-player co-op & free to play for anyone who owned the game. Ubisoft had other names and was originally called “Quarantine & Parasite”. It’s now officially known as Rainbow Six Extraction.

Ubisoft was able to share some new details during their E3′ presentation. First off the game is releasing a lot sooner than you expected it to be. Coming out on September 16th, 2021, this will be a whole new fresh take for the Rainbow Six franchise.

Here’s the plot background for this co-op tactical shooter:

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction is a 1 to 3-player cooperative tactical first-person shooter. Assemble your elite team of Rainbow Six operators to launch incursions into the unpredictable containment zones and discover the mysteries behind the lethal alien threat called the Archæns. Knowledge, cooperation, and a tactical approach are your best weapons. Band together and put everything on the line as you take on an unknown enemy.


Players can select their favorite operators as they can continue to challenge their reflex skills or extract towards their objective. Under the command of Eliza “Ash” Cohen as she will be the leading operator to share intel for each map’s missions. You will need to work together as a team and put your skills to the test. Unlike other horde, co-op games, Extraction is an original take about an infection that seems alien like.
