Ubisoft stops developing Ghost Recon Breakpoint

Ubisoft will no longer develop new content for the third-person shooter Ghost Recon Breakpoint. That says the publisher on Twitter. The servers for Breakpoint and Wildlands will remain online for now, but there will be no more missions, weapons and outfits.

That makes the Operation Motherland expansion that came out in November the last major update for the game, the company says on Ghost Recon’s Twitter account. There will also be no new outfits, items and weapons for the game. Ghost Recon Breakpoint came out in 2019 and initially flopped completely. This led to several Ubisoft games being delayed. Ubisoft tackled the game in the course of 2019 with the necessary technical improvements, including to the gear system. Ultimately, Ubisoft added several features that fans of the series loved, such as immersive mode and a new storyline, but the game failed to match the popularity of its predecessor Ghost Recon Wildlands. That game, from 2017, still has an active community.

In early 2021, it was announced that the game would feature NFTs via a new Quartz payment system. These have been offered since December 9. Soon there was a lot of criticism from players and after a few weeks it turned out that these NFTs were hardly traded. The game’s servers remain up and running, but the question is what will happen to the sold NFTs, because they remain worth little without an active game.

Ubisoft announced Tuesday that it is working on a smartphone version of Rainbox Six Siege. Ubisoft will also release the new free-to-play multiplayer shooter XDefiant, but it is not yet clear when that game will appear. Ubisoft is also working on another shooter, codenamed Pathfinder, says computer. The game replaces the battle royale game Hyper Scape, whose servers will go offline on April 28.
