Xbox and its Game Pass subscription had a wonderful 2021 filled with games and surprises, and it is continuing its hot streak in 2022 as it adds another hotly anticipated game from Ubisoft to its growing list of day one games.
Xbox Game Pass adds Rainbow Six Extraction
Ubisoft has announced and confirmed that Ubisoft’s upcoming Rainbow Six Extraction, which is scheduled to launch on January 20, is headed to Xbox Game Pass as a day and date title.
Additionally, Ubisoft has also announced that its subscription service that allows access to over 100 Ubisoft titles, Ubisoft+, will also be coming to Xbox in the future as a separate subscription and not to be confused as a part of Game Pass or Game Pass Ultimate. Full details regarding Ubisoft+ will be revealed at a later date.
“By making Rainbow Six Extraction available to Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members on the day and date of its launch via Xbox Game Pass, we’re demonstrating that we believe in the value and choice that game subscriptions offer to players,” said Chris Early, Ubisoft’s Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development. “Rainbow Six Extraction for Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members is just the beginning. Ultimately, we will offer the Ubisoft+ subscription service to Xbox owners so that they can enjoy the full extent of our Ubisoft+ game library, including new releases, on their consoles.”
“With Rainbow Six Extraction, Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members are getting another blockbuster added to their library on the same day the title launches,” said Sarah Bond, Corporate Vice President, Game Creator Experience and Ecosystem at Xbox. “And because Rainbow Six Siege will be on both Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass as well, the Rainbow Six community and fans of tactical shooters will have plenty to look forward to playing together, no matter where they play.”
This is certainly great news for Game Pass subscribers and on top of the already awesome lineup of games joining the service like Outer Wilds and Mass Effect Legendary Edition.
