Ubisoft Officially Ends Content Support For Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Almost three year after its release, Ghost Recon Breakpoint will no longer receive any more content updates from Ubisoft.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint is the successor to Ghost Recon Wildlands, the popular tactical shooter that amazed audiences and Ghost Recon fans alike, with its immersive and tactical gameplay, and open-world environment which was a first for the series. It was released in 2017 and followed by Ghost Recon Breakpoint, a title that looked much like its predecessor.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint was released in 2019 but failed to gain traction and garnered bad reviews, many citing the lack of cohesion in the gameplay as a major source of disappointment. The game was so unsuccessful that it led Co-Founder and CEO Yves Guillemont to comment that Ghost Recon Breakpoint sales and reception were “disappointing”. The game required to be always online, which also drew a slew of negative reviews. The announcement of the inclusion of NFTs also drew much criticism.

This did not stop the developer from supporting the game rigorously with content updates, patches, and the like. Ever since its release in 2019, the game got several DLCs such as Project Titan, Terminator, Deep State, Red Patriot, Amber Sky, and what would be the last piece of DLC, Operation Motherland. However, this will now seemingly stop. According to a tweet from the game’s official Twitter account, the game will now receive no more content updates from Ubisoft.

This comes just after the game was down for scheduled maintenance, which was largely dedicated to bug fixes. The tweet mentions how the developer “released more than 11 updates and supported several unique initiatives”. The developer also points out that this does not mark the end of the game as they state, “We will continue to maintain our servers for both Ghost Recon Wildlands and Ghost Recon Breakpoint and we truly hope you will continue to enjoy the game and have fun playing in solo or co-op with friends.” This also implies that the game will still require to be always online, a feature that had been much hated by the players already.
