Ubisoft’s most recent Ghost Recon game, 2019’s Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, has officially ended active development for the game. Today, the Ghost Recon Twitter account publicly tweeted, “Hey Ghosts, we have an important message we would like to share with you all.” In the tweet, Ghost Recon mentions that Ghost Recon Breakpoint has received more than 11 updates over its lifespan. Now, over the last four months, Ubisoft has released its final update, Operation Motherland, which contained several items celebrating the franchise’s 20th anniversary.

The tweet ends with “Until next time, Ghosts”, clearly hinting at Ubisoft’s upcoming new Ghost Recon title, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Frontline. While supporting the most recent Ghost Recon video game for a couple of years is not uncharted territory for Ubisoft, it is rare that Ubisoft has yet to release a new game in the franchise. As of right now, Ubisoft has not announced a launch date for the new Ghost Recon Frontline, and Ubisoft is encroaching on the longest time between Ghost Recon releases. Namely, Ubisoft has never gone more than three years between Ghost Recon releases, and right now, Ubisoft may beat the record if Ghost Recon Frontline is not released by May 2022.
While fans were sad to see Ghost Recon Breakpoint will no longer be updated, this announcement may mark that Ghost Recon Frontline may release soon. Due to the amount of time passed since the release of Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ubisoft should be slated to release Ghost Recon Frontline rather soon. While speculative, it seems Ubisoft may be drawing attention to the end of Ghost Recon Breakpoint in order to draw buzz and hype for the new Ghost Recon game.
