Ubisoft look set to reveal a new Ghost Recon game this evening, as part of a 20th anniversary showcase of the series.
A broadcast has been scheduled for tonight at 6pm which will look back on two-decades of the near-future shooter. Proceedings will kick off at 6PM UK time and include several surprises. There’ll be a deep dive into the game’s history, starting with the first game’s launch in 2001 on PC. This’ll be followed by a peek behind the scenes of the most recent game, 2019’s Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
Finally, the broadcast will conclude with a World Premiere of a “New Project Reveal” for the series. While details are under wraps, users on Reddit and the ResetEra forums have found references to something called Ghost Recon: Frontline. Other details, according to the leak, include a return to more linear FPS levels with a modern-day Vietnam setting. This would be a move away from recent entries, which utilised an open world, sandbox-like setting with a third person view.
Back in July, Ubisoft revealed free-to-play shooter Tom Clancy’s XDefiant, which will also feature a few nods to Ghost Recon. You can watch the Ghost Recon 20th anniversary showcase in the player below at 6pm UK time. We’ll report back when we know more.
