Rainbow Six mining postponed to 2022, Rider’s Republic postponed to October

Ubisoft has delayed two of its games.

Rainbow Six Extraction and Republic of the Horsemen were both delayed by Ubisoft.


Scheduled for release on September 16, the next Rainbow Six will be released in January 2022 instead.

“Our ambition with Rainbow Six Extraction is to provide a full-fledged AAA experience that changes the way you play and think about cooperative games,” Ubisoft said in a statement.

With unique features like Missing In Action or The Sprawl, each mission is defined as a tense and challenging experience in which you will lead Rainbow Six’s elite operators in a fight against a deadly and evolving alien threat. We embrace the l opportunity to take more time to bring this vision to life as it deserves in January 2022.

“We are confident this will ensure Rainbow Six Extraction is the immersive, cooperative and exciting experience we intend to create, and one that you aspire to play. We look forward to sharing more with you very soon.”

Meanwhile, Rider’s Republic saw its release date moved from September 2 to October 28. This was to make sure that the team could “deliver the best game for all players”. The extra time will give developers more time to polish the experience.

“We look forward to all of you hitting the Republic in our next beta,” the statement continued. “This will be the first time you get to experience this massive multiplayer playground and we can’t wait to hear what you think about it. We will have more to share, stay tuned.”
