Ubisoft to reveal new Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon on Thursday

Ubisoft /

After hiding a teaser in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Ubisoft has finally announced that the new Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon game will be revealed this week.

This past weekend, Ubisoft released a free update for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands. The free update sent players on a mission to rescue Skell Tech engineer with knowledge of sensitive U.S. industrial secrets. Prior to its release, Ubisoft teased that the new missions would not only “challenge your perception of the truth,” but also “set the scene for the future.”

Not long after the update dropped, a YouTuber by the name of Corecross (via PCGamesN) discovered what appeared to be the first teaser for a new game. It was an invitation to Skell Con, an event taking place on May 9, 2019.

The invitation pointed to a website for the fictional tech organization, Skell Technology. Promising “a better future today,” Skell Technology is all about “working without boundaries to bring to life the world of tomorrow.”

An accompanying promotional video revealed Skell Technology’s new range of drones for both public and personal use to better society as a whole. The video paints the company in a glowing light, claiming to “harness innovations in industrial science to serve the common good.”

Of course, anyone familiar with this sci-fi trope likely realizes this is probably a front for something much more sinister. We don’t know exactly what Skell Technology is hiding from the public, but the notion of futuristic tech as a core story element could allude to a new Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.

Skell Technology figures to play a major role in Ubisoft’s upcoming Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon, and on Thursday, we should get a better idea into how the tech company factors into the story. Ubisoft confirmed on social media today that the world premiere of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon will take place on Thursday, May 9 at 11:30 a.m. PDT.

While many were hoping for a new Splinter Cell, it’s not really a surprise that Ubisoft is returning to the Ghost Recon series. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands was released in 2017 and sold over four million copies in its first six months. Wildlands has been supported by two years worth of content, which further suggests the game has been at least profitable enough for Ubisoft to stick with it.

With E3 right around the corner, the world premiere of the next Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon should be a nice appetizer for Ubisoft’s full main course in June.
