Ubisoft ends Ghost Recon breakpoint update
Ghost Recon Breakpoint was a mess at launch — “boring and confusing,” we say in 40% of reviews (opens in new tab)– but Ubisoft persevered (opens in new tab) With fixes, updates, and the launch of Friends Pass and free trials. However, there hasn’t been any real news on the game since the October 2021 “Operation Motherland” update, and today Ubisoft confirmed that there will be no further content updates.
“The past four months have marked the release of our last piece of content: a brand new Motherland mode, a slew of new items, including iconic 20th anniversary costumes and a Quartz item for Ghost Recon Breakpoint,” Ubisoft said in a message posted to Twitter. .
“We will continue to maintain our servers for Ghost Recon Wildlands and Ghost Recon Breakpoint, and we sincerely hope you will continue to enjoy the game and have fun playing solo or co-op with friends.”
It might initially feel like Ubisoft was washing its hands of breakpoints after tackling its worst problems, but it’s not entirely unreasonable to end a new content update two years after its release.Support for The Division 2 was originally scheduled to end two years after its release in 2019 (until Ubisoft dropped a surprise announcement (opens in new tab) new content plans for 2021), and the final major update for Ghost Recon Wildlands (opens in new tab) It also arrived more than two years after the game launched in 2017. Fans may be disappointed, but at least compared to previous releases, ending the update isn’t an unreasonable time frame.

Reactions to news on Twitter and Reddit What could be described as a cynical resignation: dissatisfaction with Ubisoft’s departure, but accepting that it was bound to happen. Some fans are thankful for Ubisoft’s continued support of Breakpoint after such a rough start, while others complain that it’s still a mess in many ways; lots of free advice on how to improve the next Ghost Recon game, and of course The doom and gloomy inevitable predictions of Ghost Recon Frontline, the free-to-play battle royale game announced last year.
That game also had a rough start: a planned beta was halted the day before it was supposed to go live, reportedly due to a backlash against its 2021 announcement. Frontline’s closed beta testing finally took place in early 2022, but there’s still no sign of a release date.
