Ghost Recon Breakpoint launched earlier in October and has had a bit of a rocky start. Despite placing at the #6 spot on the NPD rankings with only two days of tracking, Ubisoft stated in a recent conference call for its earnings that the game had been disappointing financially. Players have reported plentiful issues such as glitches as well as obscene microtransactions.

Fortunately, Ubisoft is taking player feedback and today outlined a plan (opens in new tab) to improve the game.

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 first thing coming is Title Update 1.0.3, which will bring Drone deployment fixes, stop issues with NVGs blocking crosshairs and improve the Mission Completion notifications. This update is planned for release in mid-November, while a second update will follow at the end of November with more general fixes. Post-launch content is still coming with the first Raid set to arrive in December.

Ubisoft also states that further changes are coming to the in-game economy. AI teammates are also planned to be added into the game however, there's no timeframe on when they'll be coming. Ubisoft also states that while it is too early to provide specific details, the team understands that players want freedom of choice in missions and mechanical changes are also in the works.

All in all, while it may take time, players who want to enjoy the game should be encouraged by this statement. We'll continue to provide updates on what new features or changes are rolled out for Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

  • I loved This Game when I first got it, and I am still playing it. The worst part of This Game and The Division comes down to One Thing; Microtranasactions have ruined Video Games. I thought the failure of Fallout 76 and the EA FIFA Lootbox Debacle would be a warning. Instead, the Industry sees that even in failure, there is profit. I think that these "failures" will become the new norm and We will be forced to accept it. I have no idea why it is so important for Me to be able to have 15 Different Vehicles available for Me in Ghost Recon. Why can't a Tactical Mil Sim Shooter be just that? Instead, I get turned into an Inventory Specialist. That's what I hate about Breakpoint and The Division 2. Corporate Greed and Profit Margins deserve to fail.
