Today, Ubisoft and Xbox announced that Ubisoft+, the publisher’s subscription service is coming to Xbox in the future. Ubisoft+ originally launched for PC, allowing access to more than 100 Ubisoft titles at a single monthly cost, with games and DLC available on launch day, and monthly rewards including cosmetics, boosters, in-game items, and more. Ubisoft also revealed that the upcoming Rainbow Six Extraction will be a day one addition for Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members, allowing them to play on Xbox consoles and PC when the game launches on January 20. Rainbow Six Siege will also be available to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC Game Pass members on the same day. Siege is currently part of Xbox Game Pass which only allows Xbox owners access to the game.

Rainbow Six Extraction is a cooperative PVE experience that places players in the shoes of well-known Rainbow Six Siege operators with up to three friends, facing off against a mysterious alien menace that threatens life on Earth. With 18 operators to choose from and a variety of unique gadgets and weapons at their disposal, players will need to communicate and think tactically to take on their otherworldly adversaries and safely extract their captured teammates.
“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.”
“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.”
Ubisoft+ will not be the only other subscription service available on Xbox. In 2020, EA and Xbox announced that EA Play, EA’s subscription service, was being added to Xbox Game Pass. EA Play allows access to more than 60 of EA’s biggest and best titles. We’ll have to wait and see if Ubisoft+ follows suit and provides even more games for players to choose from for Game Pass members.
