In development by Ubisoft, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is an upcoming open world tactical shooter that places an emphasis on cooperative play. It is also the tenth game in the wildly popular Ghost Recon series and will be the first to feature a truly open world.
And now, in an earnings call by Ubisoft, CEO Yves Guillemot has said that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will feature an open beta in “Next Quarter”. The game itself is set for release in early March next year, so we can assume that the beta will be held sometime before them.
“The feedback we got on Ghost Recon is excellent. What we see is that it can be a revolutionary game. To compare with The Division last year, it’s in the same trend, actually. We expect next quarter to do some open beta and closed beta that will help the players to know what the game is, and we’re very confident it will excite gamers a lot.”
The premise of the game is set in Bolivia, which has become increasingly dangerous and unstable due to the Santa Blanca drug cartel and their growing cocaine production operations. Players will take on the role of “Ghosts,” a special operations unit of the United States Army that has been sent in to reveal the connections between the cartel and the local government.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is slated for release on 7th March, 2017 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC. Hopefully more details about the beta will be revealed in the coming months.
