What’s next for Ghost Recon Breakpoint?

Ubisoft /

From Title Updates to AI teammates, economy fixes to raids, Ubisoft has plans to continue to fix and grow Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

It’s no secret that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint has been a disappointment. Ubisoft pretty much admitted as much in their recent earnings report, citing disappointing sales numbers for the game. Ghost Recon Breakpoint‘s initial failure is also a big reason why Ubisoft decided to delay Watch Dogs Legion and other big titles.

But if there is anything Ubisoft has taught us in the past, it’s that they don’t give up on their games easily. Heck, The Division was also a mess when it first launched but by the end of its cycle, it was an awesome game. People are still playing the game, despite the fact that we got a sequel earlier this year.

Point being, Ubisoft sticks with its games and Ghost Recon Breakpoint will be no different. Ubisoft issued a sort of roadmap for Breakpoint, giving fans a rough idea of what’s coming to the game in the near future.

For starters, Title Update 1.0.3 is expected to arrive in mid-November and will feature fixes on Drone deployment, on changing the fire rate, on NVGs blocking crosshairs and on the Mission Completion notification pop-up. Title Update will follow shortly thereafter (end of November) and will feature further improvements based on “pressing community feedback.” In addition to bug fixes, Ubisoft is tweaking the in-game economy, but there’s no mention of when changes will be made.

Additionally, the developer has plans to add AI teammates back into the game, but added that it’s a “major undertaking that will still require time.” Perhaps even more grand in scope, Ubisoft is working on “a more radical and immersive version” of Ghost Recon Breakpoint, one that’ll presumably allow you to tailor the game to your liking. It’s unclear exactly what this means, but Ubisoft specifically mentioned a larger impact of the game’s new survival mechanics on your experience, more realism and other options to provide player freedom in experiencing Ghost Recon Breakpoint the way you want to experience it.

All of this will be added in conjunction with post-launch content. Project Titan, the game’s first Raid, will be released in December followed by The Terminator Live Event shortly after. Specifics will be shared at a later date.

As we’ve seen countless times before, balancing “games as a service” titles is no easy task. And despite how many missteps we’ve seen along the way, it seems very few games have managed to launch without issues. Thankfully, Ubisoft is committed to making Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint the game they originally promised it would be. Let’s just hope it doesn’t take too long to get there.
