Well, here in Brazil Ubisoft is in bad shape... and apparently, not only here!
I don't know what marketing people think at the company, but if we take the 3 core franchises of Tom Clancy's series (GR / R6 and Splinter Cell) they just screwed up a lot...and it looks like they STILL DON'T WANT TO HEAR THE COMMUNITY! The reaction of social media today is practically instantaneous, so there's no excuse for not producing something the audience wants/would like to play!
The DELTA project looks like it wasn't "so" good, after all, the community says what they would like to play and they present something like GR Frontline...joke!
Either they understand what their audience wants (especially about the Tom Clancy's franchise) or they're going to be in more trouble.
Glad you took up the topic again, because I was going to open one about Insurgency on consoles! In 2018 I followed the movement of the game's launch, and it was very frustrating (for me) not to have the game launched for the consoles. My laptop wouldn't run the game satisfactorily, and as in my country building a PC for gaming is very expensive, playing Insurgency 4 on PS4 would be the solution.
I thought this game wouldn't come out anymore, but thankfully the developer didn't give up on the release for video games! As soon as it came out, I bought the digital version and despite the bugs (many already fixed, including!) I say: what a game! Very rare to see this type of game on consoles! Maybe the only ones were Operation Flashpoint (for the first Xbox I played) and Operation Flashpoint Dragons Rising (PS3 / Xbox 360) which was VERY good! I even remember ICK (member of this forum) on his page making a PDF document about some game tips.
I pretty much abandoned Ghost Recon Breakpoint to play Insurgency, especially the COOP version of it. Fantastic!
Do I recommend it? Without a doubt!
My gamertag on PSN: AranhaBR
It's a good game... I tend to steer away from PvP modes these days and focus on the Co-op side of things with Sandstorm offering a good mix of server styles - many of which are team based/tactical servers... I even managed to find people using comms to a decent level.
The BOTS are decent and react better than many other games I have played recently.
I'd recommend it if you can obtain a copy of sale... works within STEAM too which is a bonus.
The only thing I liked about the video was how overly enthusiastic the dev's were about the release - so much so that I gave off a little chuckle. The clip almost had me feeling like a 12 year old lad that was about to play my first FPS game, but then reality kicked in and I remembered that I am well past my sell by date and this type of game isn't for me.
So the game really will drop heavy loads from a helicopter?
Ultimately I just want a good shooter game to play that offers the option of some tactical thought along the way - doesn't seem much to ask.
Weird how they wouldn't remaster the original series of GR... plenty of people would buy it, surely? Hearing the game is now on-hold... doesn't sound good for the team.
