During the past year we have grown used to game delays, and yet somehow Ubisoft found a way to surprise us: only a month after sharing their release dates durings its Ubisoft Forward event, the publisher has delayed both Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction and Riders Republic.
Originally scheduled for a February 25 release, Riders Republic was already delayed earlier this year to an undefined date — until last month, when Ubisoft announced the game would be releasing on September 2nd. But now it has been delayed once again, this time until October 28.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Extraction, on the other hand, was originally announced during E3 2019 under the name ‘Quarantine’, but earlier this year Ubisoft confirmed that it would be renamed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. During its Ubisoft Forward event the publisher had confirmed the game would be released on September 16, but it has now been delayed until January 2022.
