Next Ghost Recon spared cancellation but won't launch till 2025 says insider

Amid cancellations of multiple games at Ubisoft, it’s suggested that its next Ghost Recon game has been pushed back by a couple more years.

After it began to wind down support for Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ubisoft assured fans that the series will continue, saying, ‘The feedback you’ve given for Ghost Recon Breakpoint has been instrumental and will help shape the future of the franchise.’

No new Ghost Recon game has been actually announced yet, but it was soon reported that one could launch during Ubisoft’s 2023 fiscal year, meaning it’d be out by the end of this March, at the very latest.

Considering that’s only two months way now, that seems increasingly unlikely and it’s since been claimed that the next Ghost Recon isn’t scheduled until 2025.

This comes courtesy of industry insider Tom Henderson, who was asked if the reports of a 2023 Ghost Recon game were true.

Henderson didn’t provide much detail, simply saying he believes the game is ‘forecasted for 2025 or so.’

Aside from suggesting that the game has been internally delayed, this points to the new Ghost Recon not being one of the games Ubisoft opted to cancel recently.

After all, Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s microtransactions were easily one of the worst things about it and by the end of its lifecycle, it had generated controversy with Ubisoft’s integration of NFTs.

Ubisoft had promised to commit to NFTs for future games besides Ghost Recon, but it hasn’t talked about them in months, perhaps suggesting it finally got the hint that most audiences don’t want or care about them.
