Ubisoft has postponed the first test of its latest Ghost Recon game. Only a few weeks after its unveiling is the closed technical test for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Frontline has been postponed indefinitely, Ubisoft announced on Wednesday.
Announcement from Ubisoft the delay was extremely vague and provided no other reason than that delay was the best choice and that the “development team is committed to creating the best experience possible”.
However, given the negative reaction from fans to the game’s announcement, the decision isn’t all that surprising. Ghost Recon Frontline is a 100-player free-to-play shooter inspired by the battle royale genre. In other words, the game is a far cry from the slow, tactical, squad-based action that the Ghost Recon series is known for.
On the Ghost Recon subreddit and YouTube comment sections, fans expressed disappointment with the direction Ubisoft had taken with the series. Despite fan dissatisfaction, there is still no indication from Ubisoft as to whether the game will change direction or not. Polygon reached out to Ubisoft for more details.
For now, the future of Ghost Recon Frontline remains uncertain. According to Ubisoft’s announcement, the developer will announce the new date for the closed test if he has one.
