Many are calling for it, but you might be right, nobody has predicted it because Ubi have steadfastly decided they will take Ghost Recon in new directions. I for one could not understand why they kept doing this instead of developing Ghost Recon's tactical history further, rather than taking it in a whole new direction.
Then I remembered Rainbow Six Siege.
Siege took R6 further from R6 roots than Breakpoint did with GR by a million miles - but it was and remains a huge success. So the old school (that include me) can moan about their favourite game isn't worthy of the name anymore, but Ubisoft is counting it as a success. Except the failed with Ghost Recon, so badly they pulled Frontline all together.
I hope they have taken the dev time and those assets and are turning it into a game worthy of the brand, a game that takes Wildlands as a base and develops it even further to incorporate more of the features that made the first GR such a huge success.
Geez that was a bad trailer.
Honestly, I didn't think they could stuff GR up more than Breakpoint, but they did it in style.
At some point, you feel like Ubi will stop and reflect on the poor sales and reception and actually go back to the roots.
Particularly, as you're starting to see the rise and heavy support for some serious tactical shooters.
Ready or Not for example, as hardcore as it gets and the fans love it. What excites me about that is, if you think back to where GR started, it was CQB Raven Shield, Rogue Spear etc.
And eventually, the Devs moved the battle outdoors into more rural environments.
Surely, the Devs of RoN will eventually see the opportunity...
Predicted here first.
I’m thinking about putting together a new small tournament with all the GR players, probably via the Discord channel .
I was thinking each mission maker could provide one mission with scoring for objectives completed. I’d be hoping for some classic GR style missions and on some classic maps.
Anyone interested in contributing?
