Currently, we only have the official install size for Xbox Series X, which is 46.63 GB. While Rainbow Six Extraction file size might seem big, it is still relatively smaller than other modern titles like CoD.

Ubisoft and Xbox have already announced that Rainbow Six Extraction will be available on day one with Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass, and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. This will definitely push more players to try out the game.

Rainbow Six Extraction is coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, the Ubisoft Store on Windows PC, and Stadia on Jan. 20th. The game will also feature cross-play across all platforms, so fans will be able to enjoy this title with their friends on other platforms.
