New Ghost Recon in Development at Ubisoft Set For 2023 Release

Ubisoft has put a stop to all ongoing development for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. The studio recently announced that it would be shifting its focus towards other projects. According to a new report, that project is actually a new Ghost Recon game that is scheduled to release next year.

The report claims that the new Ghost Recon game is currently in development at the company under the codename “OVER”. It says that Ubisoft has been working on the new Ghost Recon for over a year already and the studio plans to release it as early as mid-2023.

Details on the new Ghost Recon game are practically nonexistent at this time but there is major reason to be concerned. Ubisoft has been going through a rough patch of late. Especially surrounding its Tom Clancy video game series. Last year, instead of teasing an announcement for this new Ghost Recon game, during the series’ 25th anniversary the company announced a free-to-play live service game called Ghost Recon Frontlines. Fans were not happy at all and immediately clapped back at Ubisoft.

Keep in mind that Ubisoft’s last Tom Clancy game, Breakpoint didn’t perform well either. The shallow open-world action game was littered with free-to-play mechanics, in-game pay-to-win purchases and lots of bugs. Ubisoft then added NFTs into Breakpoint and the few people playing the game then jumped ship.

Ubisoft’s blockchain department called Quartz, which the company built just to work on NFT tech in games has since gone dead. However, Ubisoft said in a statement regarding Breakpoint content that they will share more information regarding Quartz in the future.

While the news of a new Ghost Recon sequel should be exciting, Ubisoft’s current business model is anything but attractive. Its push for free-to-play live service games and blockchain technology has left fans frustrated. In just the past 12 months, these are the free-to-play live service games we have been made aware of at Ubisoft.

  • Rainbow Six Siege Mobile – Free-to-play live Service
  • Hyper Scape (Shutting down) – Free-to-play live service
  • Ghost Recon Frontline – Free-to-play live service
  • The Divison Heartland – Free-to-play live service
  • XDefiant – Free-to-play live service
  • Pathfinder – Free-to-play live service
  • Assassin’s Creed: Infinity – Live service

Whatever the new Ghost Recon game is, Ubisoft will find some way to milk it.
