Ubisoft’s 2021 game load just got a little bit lighter.
During the company’s E3 presentation, it revealed that Riders Republic, Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Extraction would be coming out within just about six weeks’ time. However, this is no longer the case, as some inevitable delays have come around.
The big one is for Extraction. Initially set for release in September, the game now won’t be coming around until January 2022, so that Ubisoft could have more time to make it a truly monstrous experience.
The other game that will see a delay is Riders Republic. However, that’s still slated for this year, arriving just a few weeks later on October 28th, off from its September 2nd release date. Regarding Extraction, Ubisoft noted the following:
“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.”
As for Riders Republic, the devs kept their statement brief:
“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.”
As for Far Cry 6, it’s still set to release in October, though there could be a change to that as well. We’ll see what happens in the months ahead.
