Next Ghost Recon game reportedly well into development
Ghost Recon Breakpoint may have seen its last content update, but that doesn’t mean the series is over. A new report claims a sequel is already well into development and could arrive as soon as next year.
Citing sources familiar with the project, Kotaku claims that a new Ghost Recon title has been in development for over a year and could launch as soon as fiscal year 2023. In simpler terms, that means the game would release before March 31st, 2023.
Interestingly, Kotaku’s sources tie the new game to an earlier leak of project codenames through the GeForce Now database. In September of last year, a huge list of titles destined for the Nvidia streaming service (including a possible Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2) went public. The leak outed four Ubisoft projects, and one, Project OVER, in development at Ubisoft Paris, is reportedly this Ghost Recon sequel. That makes sense enough, given that Ubisoft Paris’s recent output has been limited to Just Dance and Ghost Recon titles.
It’s also worth noting that this sequel is separate from Ghost Recon Frontline, the free-to-play multiplayer shooter Ubisoft announced in October.
One big question mark hovering around this sequel is whether it will integrate Ubisoft’s Quartz initiative, which allowed players to purchase NFTs tied to in-game items. Ubisoft first integrated the technology into the now-dormant Breakpoint, to unimpressive results.
In a statement to Kotaku, Ubisoft reps only said that they’d “have more to share regarding Ubisoft Quartz at a later date.”
