Rainbow Six Quarantine officially renamed Rainbow Six Extraction

By Tom West,
Ubisoft is preparing for its Ubisoft Forward event on June 12th during E3 2021, and in anticipation of the exciting showcase, the company has released a video announcing the new official name for Rainbow Six Quarantine — Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction.


The news comes via a recently released video where the game’s producer, Antoine Vimal du Monteil, unveiled the new Rainbow Six Extraction name and explained a little bit of what we can expect when the co-op shooter releases. Ubisoft had previously said that Quarantine was an internal placeholder for the game and that it was expected to change due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, but the team finally landed on Rainbow Six Extraction because of the title’s main gameplay focus. Extracting, in case that wasn’t overly clear.

"Since [the] announcement, the game has grown a lot," Monteil says in the Title Reveal. "As it evolved, the heart of the experience became clearer and clearer — operators uniting against a common enemy, learning about the parasite, how to overcome it, and protecting each other every step of the way." This is then explained further by creative director Patrick Methé, saying that players will be combating “an always evolving alien threat,” offering “plenty of challenges to overcome.” Players will need to decide whether to push on against the threat or extract to safety, and Methé says that “extraction is truly the name of the game.”

The Ubisoft Forward E3 showcase takes place on June 12th, so hopefully we’ll see Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction during the event and learn a little more about this alien eradicating shooter. Let us know what you think about the game so far!
