Ghost Recon Breakpoint has reached its update breaking point

There’s a time for everything, even endings. Even though those are never fun to go through, they will arrive sooner or later. For Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, that time has arrived right now. According to the French publisher, the time has come to close the book on the tactical shooter, effectively ending its update cycle.

This marks the end of a rocky road traveled for somewhat over two years. Slammed by gamers and critics alike when it launched in 2019, Ubisoft has tried diligently to mend what was broken in the first place. But the time has come to stop the mending. Operation Motherland – the last piece of content released recently – was the final effort to save the game’s grace.

And with this announcement, Ubisoft can finally take some time to reflect on its own performance. According to CEO Yves Guillemot, Ghost Recon Breakpoint caused quite the disturbance within the company. Watch Dogs Legion, Immortals: Fenyx Rising, and Rainbow Six Extraction all got pushed back because of it. Luckily, all of those games turned out to become huge successes…

In a way, you gotta feel sorry for Ubisoft here. I mean, they constantly try to do something ‘innovative’ and then get slammed for it. The battle royale game Ghost Recon Frontline was shot down instantly by the fans, that NFT-fuckfest Quartz didn’t really land well, and there are even people who are holding Yves accountable for a little touchy-feely within the company walls. Sucks to be him, I guess…
