Ghost Recon is one of Tom Clancy’s (under his Tom Clancy’s brand) brands that Ubisoft has been marketing the most in recent years, alongside Rainbow Six and The Division.
The franchise’s past two entries, which took the leap to the open world, had mixed sales results, but everything indicates that the franchise will survive in the coming years. And just today, there was a report that a new Ghost Recon game would be announced within the next several hours.
According to a leaker post on Reddit, the following are the initial details:
- Not only is a new Ghost Recon in the works, but it will be unveiled on October 5th (on the 20-year broadcast of the franchise)
- This new game would represent a shift in the franchise’s approach, as it would forgo the RPG/open world hybrid in favor of a more traditional structure.
- However, the missions would have considerable leeway because they are semi-open.
- The game takes place in Vietnam, and it is currently under progress.
- The new Ghost Recon will be powered by a new Wildlands and Breakpoint graphics engine.
- The game’s release date would be set for 2023 at the very least, as production would be in its early stages.
- The plot would become darker, and there would be ambiguity, making it difficult to distinguish between the good and the wicked.
- It also includes a revolutionary group, as seen in Far Cry 6, as a “concept recycling” from Ubisoft.
Whether all of this is true or not, we’ll find out in less than 24 hours. The facts don’t seem out of the ordinary, and we’ll have to wait and see whether Ubisoft confirms the report and exposes everything on the Ghost Recon 20th Anniversary Livestream.
