We’re only a few days away from Ubisoft’s latest Rainbow Six spin-off, which is also launching on Game Pass on Day One. We’ve already seen the official PC system requirements, now the only thing that remains is when exactly does it unlock in your region, so you can get playing as soon as possible.

Thankfully, Ubisoft has just revealed the official unlock times for Rainbow Six Extraction, which launches this Friday (January 20th). You can start pre-loading the title now on the Ubisoft Connect app and the Epic Games Store, though it is not available for pre-loading on PC Game Pass.

Here’s when Rainbow Six Extraction unlocks in your time zone:

R6 Extraction is not having a simultaneous launch like a lot of other titles recently, so instead it will be unlocking at certain times depending on your region. Ubisoft has split the launch into 3 categories: The Americas, Europe & Middle East, and the Asia & Oceania regions. Extraction will launch at midnight (12am) in most of those regions.

That means Rainbow Six Extraction releases on January 20th at midnight (12am) local time for PC and console in The Americas, at 12am CET for those in Europe or the Middle East, and finally at 12am AEDT for the Asia and Oceania regions. It will be available on Ubisoft Connect, Epic Games Store, Xbox and PC Game Pass, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Stadia (as well as Amazon Luna in the US).

What do you think? Are you excited for Rainbow Six Extraction? Will you be playing it on Day One? Or will you be waiting for a bit to see what other players think of it? Let us know!

Will you be playing R6 Extraction at launch?

Playing with Game Pass and the game feels great, however as zygisrudys said we need a new proper Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six, like Vegas 2.


Never liked Siege as it was heavily focused on PvP so i'm having fun with this one, I read it gets repetitive quick but lets see.

I like the option never lol, this game is an insult to R6 games as the event was made into a standalone game. Tom Clancy is spinning in his grave like a dam el. generator making power for the nearby district

Played the private beta with my buddy and we really enjoyed it. Have Gamepass, so I lose nothing by playing it, no matter if it's terrible or not.
