It is now unclear when players will see Ubisoft’s next entry in the Ghost Recon franchise, just a week after the title was revealed. Ghost Recon Frontline, a new battle royale title set in the Tom Clancy universe, was due to begin a closed trial on October 14. However, a tweet from the game’s official account announced that the test would not happen any time soon.

“We have decided that it is best to postpone the closed examination Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Frontline, ” the tweet reads. “The development team is dedicated to creating the best possible experience. We will share the new date details for the closed exam as soon as possible. “
We have contacted Ubisoft for comment. Ghost Recon FrontlineThere is a delay and will update this post when we hear back.
While it’s surprising to see an indefinite delay immediately after a game is revealed, the message announcing the delay is strange in itself. The short four-sentence post is blunt and to the point. It doesn’t feature an apology like some other delayed announcements, or acknowledgment of fan enthusiasm. Instead, it flattens out to a test just for Ghost Recon Frontline and leaves a message on it.
That latter part may not be too surprising to some. Ghost Recon Frontline, which is following the poorly received Ghost Recon breakpoint, has already attracted the wrath of Ghost Recon fans. NS game reveal trailer already sports an impressive 18,000 dislikes compared to less than 5,000 likes. Similarly, reactions to the delay of the game’s closed test have been largely negative.
