Ubisoft is working on the next entry in the Ghost Recon franchise, according to sources speaking with Kotaku. The news comes just one day after the publisher confirmed that it had ceased support for Ghost Recon Breakpoint, including its controversial NFTs.
According to the report, the new Ghost Recon game could launch as early as fiscal year 2023, and is known by the codename OVER. This was previously featured in the massive Nvidia leak, so it’s not the first time we’ve heard about it.
Hopefully this will help reinvigorate the flagging franchise, as it hasn’t exactly had the best run the last few years. Ghost Recon Breakpoint was a critical disappointment and didn’t set tills alight, while the upcoming Ghost Recon Frontlines failed to spark much of any interest after an internal playlets that it’s reportedly undergoing a revamp.
The Ghost Recon franchise celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, so it’s not too surprising to hear that a new entry in the series is in the works. Ubisoft hasn’t announced anything yet, so take this with a pinch of salt for the time being.
Ghost Recon: Breakpoint launched in 2019 for PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
