The Ghost Recon franchise has been floundering for a few years now, and there’s no clear picture of what the future holds for it right now. Ubisoft recently stated that it would be ceasing support for Ghost Recon Breakpoint, a game that did not fare well, but it appears that more Ghost Recon material will be available soon.
According to Kotaku, a new mainline Ghost Recon game is in production at Ubisoft’s Paris studio, according to insiders familiar with the situation. The game, codenamed OVER, was first revealed in the GeForce Now leak from last year. It’s been in development for over a year, according to the report, and is set to debut in fiscal year 2023, which ends on March 31 next year.
Other specifics on the game are scarce, though fans of the franchise will be curious if it will include NFTs once more. Ubisoft Quartz, the company’s first attempt into NFTs, was introduced with Ghost Recon Breakpoint, resulting in even more public criticism and resentment for an already ailing game. Given that the firm has stated that it will continue to invest in the NFT space, the future Ghost Recon game could follow suit.
If the game is set to release before April of next year, it will most likely be disclosed in the coming months. According to reports, Ubisoft has 20 announcements and updates scheduled for the near future, including new game reveals, so this could be one of them.
Meanwhile, Kotaku believes that Ghost Recon Frontline, which was postponed indefinitely shortly after its announcement owing to considerable criticism, is undergoing a “reset” and, as a result, is unlikely to release anytime soon.
