Rain­bow Six Quar­an­tine was first unveiled dur­ing Ubisoft­’s E3 2019 con­fer­ence, but the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic (along with oth­er fac­tors) made the com­pa­ny decide to rename the game to Rain­bow Six Extrac­tion. Although this announce­ment was made just yes­ter­day, it seems this new name has been in a pub­lic doc­u­ment for over a month. Yet, no one noticed.

Axios gam­ing edi­tor Stephen Toti­lo took note of this when read­ing a pub­lic finan­cial doc­u­ment that was released back in May. It’s not clear if the title was final­ized at that point, but the bit of text Toti­lo linked in his tweet lists Rain­bow Six Extrac­tion along with Far Cry 6 as games that were post­poned to 2022 because of the pandemic.

Details like this are typ­i­cal­ly caught because of pub­lic dis­clo­sures of sen­si­tive doc­u­ments. So it’s rather odd that no one spot­ted this bit of infor­ma­tion before the com­pa­ny released it themselves.
