Ghost Recon to return in 2025 with new open-world FPS

Ghost Recon to return in 2025 with new open-world FPS

A new report claims that Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon will return in 2025 with a new FPS.

It was all the way back in 2019 that the most recent Ghost Recon entry landed in the form of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

Fair to say, it wasn’t developer Ubisoft’s proudest moment. Over on Metacritic, the game scored a measly 56 from critics, with players awarding an even more abysmal score of 3.2.

Both Breakpoint’s formulaic mission design and finicky mechanics were criticised.

Breakpoint offers initial fun following Ubisoft's open-world structure as gospel, but a lack of variety and conflicting pieces leave it devoid of personality,” wrote IGN, awarding the game a score of just six.

You can understand why developers have taken a few years to take stock and decide what the next best step for the franchise is.

It looks as if there is indeed a next step though as the latest whisper in the wind is that Ghost Recon is set to make a comeback in 2025.

Take a look at 2019’s Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint in action below.

This tidbit of news comes from Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson.

Henderson claims in a new report that the game is known internally as Ovr / Over and will be set during the fictional Naiman War.

Anonymous sources told the site that the instalment is aiming for a 2025 - 2026 release, featuring a return to a first-person perspective.

Sources described the game as a squad-based military tactical shooter that’s set to take inspiration from franchises like Modern Warfare, Battlefield, Squad, and Ready or Not.

As for the fictional Naiman War, this reportedly takes place in a southeast country that sees “hundreds of thousands of people die as a result of war crimes,” as per Insider Gaming’s report.

Your team of Ghosts will seek to infiltrate the warzone in order to locate a traitor.

In what sounds to be a rather grisly and upsetting mission, your squad may find themselves “nearly shooting a man holding a baby”, believing the child to be a bomb - realisation hitting at the last second.

Insider Gaming claims to have seen footage that shows a significant graphical improvement.

Of course, nothing has yet been confirmed by Ubisoft so do take all of this with a pinch of salt. Perhaps we’ll hear more at the next Ubisoft Forward.
