  1. Yeah, not a great showing for the 20th anniversary of the franchise. I wouldn't declare it the death knell of the series, however. It's pretty clearly a project developed by one of Ubisoft's B-teams, given the liberal reuse of Breakpoint assets (with little in the way of modification!). I imagine we'll see a proper mainline title down the line. As to whether the next main entry will be worthy of the title of Ghost Recon... well... we'll have to see. Despite how oversaturated the genre is, Ubisoft's greatest strength is in creating open world shooters. It's one of the things I'd actually say they're better at than most of their competitors. They're just not willing to move out of their comfort zone and innovate in that regard. Wildlands and post-launch Breakpoint were steps in the right direction, but they suffer from Ubisoft's unwillingness to deliver anything but comforting power fantasies. Their games are just too easy, nowadays, and they clearly know this. Far Cry New Dawn was a genuine if underwhelming attempt to address the lack of difficulty scaling in Far Cry games. A lot of the post-launch support for Breakpoint revolved around introducing hardcore, tactical shooter-oriented features into the game. Just to clarify, I'm not particularly optimistic about the next mainline Ghost Recon, either. Ubisoft will probably play it safe and make it an enjoyable, if middling open world shooter. I just hope that along the way, they'll remember every once in a while that they're making a Ghost Recon game.

  2. Yeah I don't really understand this. If they make a good game it will literally print money, even if they make a good game and add all kinds of MTX to it, it would still sell well and fans would likely still be happy and it would make them big money. I don't see their plan here, it seems very misguided.
