Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Announced

New Ghost Recon Game Announced, Multiplayer Beta To Come in Summer

February 9, 2010 – Ubisoft announced that Ghost Recon: Future Soldier will be coming to gamers for the Holiday 2010 season. The game will be the latest in the Ghost Recon series, which has been critically acclaimed ever since the tactical shooter first arrived in 2001 and put players in the role of U.S. Special Forces fighting in Eastern Europe.

Since then, the Ghost Recon series has moved to the future, with Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter and Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 taking place in Mexico during great civil unrest several years in the future. The games focus on utilizing technologies that are currently being developed by the military and put players in semi-realistic situations.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier will be developed by Ubisoft Paris, the same team behind Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter. According to the press release, Future Soldier will “go beyond the core Ghost Recon franchise and deliver a fresh gameplay experience, with an unparalleled level of quality that will excite long-time fans and newcomers alike.”

In addition to providing a single player experience, Future Soldier will also include a multiplayer experience that will be in beta testing this summer. Gamers who purchase Splinter Cell: Conviction will be able to play the beta.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier will be developed by Ubisoft Paris for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PSP and DS. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot also noted that a Wii version will be developed “by a different team” with a “different approach…created for that Wii population.”
