Tom Clancy's The Division Coming to PC
Ubisoft have confirmed that Massive Entertainment's new project The Division will be coming to PC.
Why is this of interest to Ghost Recon gamers? For a few reasons; firstly there are apparently more than a few in game assets that look extremely similar to visuals found in Ghost Recon Future Soldier. Secondly, Ubisoft have hinted that The Division will pay homage to other Tom Clancy titles, exactly how remians a mystery at the moment.
Lastly, Ubisoft's respected Future Soldier community manager Antoine Emund is on this project.
The final reason to watch out for The Division is that it looks pretty much awesome. Read more and watch vids in our forums here.
Thanks to 101459 for tipping us off on this development!
The Division PC Petition
This has been pretty much well advertised and well recieved by the PC community, but if you haven't already heard, Ubisoft's latest Tom Clancy title "The Division" is currently under petition to appear on the PC.
Currently only slated for next gen consoles, PC gamers are rightly grumpy that they are to be excluded from this new Clancy title, that seems to use a fair bit of Future Soldier assets in the gameplay.
The petition has already passed 100,000 signatures, so add your name to the list now and let's have this great looking title on the PC.
If you need more persuasion, The Division is coming to you from Massive Entertainment, the source of the fantastic PC title World in Conflict.

Ghost Recon Dev Hints New Ghost Recon

This is the first hint that work is underway on a next gen PS4 or XBox One Ghost Recon. Whether this gets confirmed at E3 shortly is open to speculation!

PC Lead Platform for next Ghost Recon?
Could the PC be the lead platform for the next Ghost Recon title from Ubisoft? Certainly the long suffering PC Ghost Recon community would sit up and take notice if that was the case, and it may not be a pipe dream if the latest word out of camp Ubisoft is a sign of things to come;
