Rainbow Six Extraction is Coming to Xbox Game Pass at Launch Later This Month

Matt Lorrigan

Microsoft and Ubisoft have announced that Rainbow Six Extraction will be coming to Xbox Game Pass at launch later this month.

The co-operative tactical shooter is set to arrive on consoles and PC on 20th January, but will also now be freely available to play across Xbox, PC, and Xbox Cloud Gaming via Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on day one as well. Not only that, but Rainbow Six Siege will also be coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC in the near future, following its addition on console and cloud.

This marks the first time that a Ubisoft title has launched on day one via Xbox Game Pass, and Ubisoft has also revealed that it intends to bring its own Ubisoft+ service to Xbox consoles in the near future - perhaps we'll see this combined into Xbox Game Pass, much like we did with EA Play?

If you've missed it until now, Rainbow Six Extraction is a three-player co-op PvE shooter, set in a world that's been invaded by an alien parasite. The game is set to launch later this month at a budget price of £33.99 / £39.99, and will include a Buddy Pass system, allowing players to invite friends to play without them owning the game. Ubisoft has also promised free post-launch content for the game.

Rainbow Six Extraction is launching on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S via Xbox Game Pass, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC on 20th January 2022.

  • That's great I wanted to get it but it just didn't seem logical
  • Same. Want to play it, don't want to pay for it.
  • This is great news, which when it comes to Ubisoft is completely unheard of.

    I'm pretty sure they only did this to try and make people forget about NFTs in Breakpoint, and Frontline.
  • Am I the only one bothered by the combination of Tom Clancy and 'alien parasites'?
  • @Wolf825, you're not... Ubisoft has made a joke out of the Tom Clancy brand, especially with a lot of its upcoming games. In my opinion, I think Ubisoft agreed to put this on GamePass because they knew this would likely bomb. I think for Ubisoft, the hope is that they get people to play it with it being on GamePass and maybe hook their tendrils then, retaining players.
