A New Ghost Recon Game Is Reportedly In Development

A New Ghost Recon Game Is Reportedly In Development

A brand new Ghost Recon game, codenamed OVER, is reportedly in development, and could apparently release as soon as fiscal year 2023.

The Ghost Recon franchise hasn’t been doing fantastically lately. October last year saw the announcement of the free-to-play battle royale Frontline, which went down so well that within a week, Ubisoft had to postpone the planned closed beta test, promising that “the development team is dedicated to creating the best experience possible”. Just to rub more salt into the wound, the 2019 release, Breakpoint, also received a tonne of backlash in December when the play-to-earn venture Ubisoft Quartz was launched, and was used to introduce NFTs to the game. 

Now, there’s reportedly another new game in development that isn’t Frontline. As reported by Kotaku, this upcoming instalment is codenamed OVER, and was part of the massive Nvidia leak that happened back in September (which, by the way, has proven to be incredibly accurate so far, with games like the Chrono Cross remaster and Crysis 4 since being confirmed to be real things that exist). 

Before we go on, be sure to take a look at the trailer for Ghost Recon Frontline.

OVER has reportedly been in development for over a year, and could be arriving on a screen near you as soon as fiscal year 2023 (before the end of June next year, basically). Kotaku also claim that this new title was held back from being announced during the series’ 20th anniversary last year in favour of Frontline, which is a decision I’m sure no one ended up regretting.

As for when this new title will actually be announced, you’d imagine it’d have to be soon - earlier this week, Breakpoint received its last official update: “The last four months marked the release of our final piece of content: the brand new Operation Motherland mode, tons of new items including 20th anniversary iconic outfits and Quartz items for Ghost Recon Breakpoint,” the publisher wrote in a statement on Twitter. “We will continue to maintain our servers for both Ghost Recon Wildland and Ghost Recon Breakpoint and we truly hope you will continue to enjoy the game and have fun playing in solo or co-op with your friends.”

Whether the support ending for Breakpoint is as a result of all the backlash it got in December isn’t known, but it wouldn’t be surprising if it had contributed. Fingers crossed they take note for the next game that NFTs just aren’t a very good idea if you want to maintain the support of your fans.
