Ubisoft are promising to fix Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Please wait...

Ghost Recon Breakpoint, it's fair to say, has flopped rather hard since it's launch. It's been universally panned by critics and gamers alike for being a fairly bland entry to the Tom Clancy series, and has been such a financial disaster, Ubisoft committed to delaying several games, including Watch Dogs Legion.

That was the first step in trying to put the situation right, it seems, as CEO Yves Guillemot has committed that the company will be supporting the game and listening to the community to deliver what he calls "necessary improvements".

We can’t stress enough how much we appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts about the game. And while these first weeks have been rougher than expected, we are taking your feedback to heart. We deeply care about this game, the Ghost Recon franchise and you, our community of players, and are committed to improving it.

The company have committed to launching two major updates in November, which will be primarily aimed at squashing bugs and improving the stability of the game. Following this, there'll be other post-launch content such as Project Titan, due around December. 

There'll be tweaks to the in-game economy coming very soon too, which should address several complaints. AI teammates are also apparently returning, which is another huge complaint about the game, but as this will involve a huge amount of work, won't be coming in one of these initial updates.

As such there's not just going to be bug fixes coming, but  future updates addressing several of the communities complaints, which Ubisoft acknowledged;

We are happy to see players embracing the new elements of the game, but we also understand that there are areas of improvements. Some of you would like our new survival mechanics to have more impact on your experience, while others dislike the tiered loot progression we have added. One of the key elements of our vision for Ghost Recon is to immerse our fans in a gritty and authentic military experience. In line with this vision and the feedback we received, we are working on a more radical and immersive version of Ghost Recon Breakpoint. We also want to let you tailor your experience to the way you want to enjoy the game, since freedom of choice has always been part of the Ghost Recon DNA.

Hopefully thanks to their response to what is a crisis for the game, Ubisoft will learn the error of their ways. This isn't the first time they've bade such mistakes, though, with both The Division and Rainbow Six Siege both suffering issues at launch, so that remains to be seen in the long run.
