Ubisoft teased that some “big” news was coming this week, and that news has finally hit. Announced via Xbox Live, a brand new Ghost Recon has been confirmed, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.
Boasting of “cutting-edge technology, prototype high-tech weaponry, and state-of-the-art single-player and multiplayer modes,” Future Soldier will allegedly expand the series and provide a “fresh” gaming experience. A multiplayer beta has already been promised for this Summer, so if you need your Ghost Recon fix, you’ll need to buy Splinter Cell: Conviction, as that’s where the invites are being hidden.
Ubisoft trademarked the name way back in December, so an announcement like this was expected. Yes, we all know you were hoping instead for news on Beyond Good & Evil 2, but this’ll just have to do, okay?
