Ghost Recon Frontline Cancelled

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon franchise will no longer have a battle royale added to the lineup. During the most recent investor call, the company announced that it’d canceled the planned battle royale-style game Ghost Recon Frontline. This may not come as much of a surprise to anyone following the development process, as player response to the announcement wasn’t great and Ubisoft postponed a technical test almost immediately.

The game, which was being developed for PlayStations 4 and 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Amazon Luna, and Google Stadia, was intended to be a free-to-play offering. Over one hundred players would have taken to the battlefield to not only fight, but also gain intelligence. Of course, the ultimate goal would have been to stay alive. None of that matters, however, since the game was the first thing to die.

With its death, it seems like it’s taking down the Tom Clancy-branded free-to-play dreams a bit more. As we've previously reported, of the other two offerings, both remain, but one dropped the Tom Clancy branding and is now just XDefiant.
