Rainbow: Six Extraction will be releasing on September 16, according to an announcement during the Ubisoft Forward stream at E3.
The spin-off from Rainbow Six: Siege will have cross-play, and allow teams of one to three players to enter maps filled with aliens as they attempt to rescue other operators. Any player-controlled Operators will be locked out until they’re successfully extracted, too.
The Ubisoft Forward stream showed off a cinematic trailer, with the game’s operators taking on an alien threat, using their tools to rescue popular Rainbow Six Siege Operator Hibana. They’re soon overrun by a slate of alien creatures, before the cinematic ends with the squad escaping on a helicopter.
There will also be specific weapons and gadgets for the Operators to use, with a lot of them being lifted from Rainbow Six: Siege with various tweaks. It was also revealed that Rainbow Six: Quarantine will have cross-play, but specific details were not given at the time.
