Rainbow Six Extraction is making its way to Xbox Game Pass for PC on day one when it releases January 20. Ubisoft made the announcement through twitter earlier today and went further in-depth about this decision, and the addition of Ubisoft+ to Xbox, on its official website. The decision stemmed from wanting the community to “look forward to playing together, no matter where they play,” said Ubisoft’s Sarah Bond.
Chris Early from Ubisoft also stated that it demonstrates “the value and choice that game subscriptions offer to players.” Rainbow Six Extraction isn’t the only co-op shooter that’s made its way over to Xbox Game Pass recently either. Back 4 Blood is another title that made use of the platform back in October 2021.

Time will tell if Rainbow Six Extraction was worth waiting all this time for. Luckily the wait is soon to be over with January 20 is just around the corner. Apart from Xbox Game Pass, there’ll be loads of ways to get your hands on the game. Besides purchasing it outright, you can also use an Ubisoft+ subscription, which provides access to over 100 games. But, since everyone has Xbox Game Pass anyway, you may as well grab Rainbow Six Extraction from there.
