Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine now has a new name, as revealed by Ubisoft. Now it’s called Rainbow Six Extraction, and will be shown during the E3 Ubisoft Forward event later this month.
The news comes from the game’s official Twitter account, which contains a short video revealing the game’s new name and what to expect from its rollout during E3. Ubisoft’s team was careful not to spoil anything about the game ahead of the Ubisoft Forward event, but the game’s producer, Antoine Vimal du Monteil, noted that it has “developed a lot” since since it was announced in 2019.

The game was originally revealed to be Rainbow Six Quarantine, but may have been altered due to the events of the COVID-19 pandemic. It was originally supposed to launch much earlier, but Ubisoft delayed it to the end of 2020, citing the pandemic as one of the main factors that delayed its release.
Ubisoft explains the title of the game, Exploit, by confirming that players will need to extract people from missions, with a focus on ensuring no one is left behind.
Vimal du Monteil said players will be tasked with learning about “the parasite in the game, how to overcome it and protect each other every step of the way.” This is in line with its initial announcement, where cooperative play was a key priority. It’s unclear how this ripping process will tie into the game, but we’ll likely see more during its gameplay reveal in Ubisoft Forward.
The company’s Ubisoft Forward event will air at noon PT / 3 p.m. ET on June 12, when we’ll learn more about it. Rainbow Six Extraction.
