Ubisoft has confirmed that it will be revealing a new Ghost Recon project later today.
The publisher will be hosting a “20th Anniversary Brand Showcase”, which can be viewed in the embed above, designed to celebrate two decades since the original Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon was released in November 2001.
The YouTube description for the stream, which starts at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST, confirms that as well as interviews and general celebrations, a new “project” will also be announced for the first time.
UPDATE: Ubisoft has announced Ghost Recon Frontline, a free-to-play shooter offering “a new take on the battle royale genre”.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: “Welcome to this Anniversary Showcase celebrating 20 years of Ghost Recon,” it reads. “Get ready to meet the people behind the franchise, hear anecdotes, receive gifts and a special surprise, with the worldwide reveal of a brand new Ghost Recon project.”
According to the lead thumbnail image for the stream, there’s also likely to be new announcements made for Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which had a troubled release in 2019 and has been recovering since.
A closed pre-alpha test of XDefiant took place in August, and late last month a blog on the game’s official website stated that the feedback received had been “invaluable”.
“We have a ways to go before launch but keep an eye out for more content and tests in the upcoming months,” the post read.
XDefiant is in development at Ubisoft San Francisco and led by executive producer Mark Rubin, who previously held the same position at Modern Warfare studio Infinity Ward, and creative director Jason Schroeder.
