Published

The Ghost Recon game that was set to be revealed tomorrow has been leaked slightly ahead of schedule via the Ubisoft Store.

According to the store leak, the next Ghost Recon game is Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. The leak—embedded below—detailed the game’s collector’s edition and title before the listing was promptly pulled from the store.

Whether the next title will tie into Ghost Recon: Wildlands‘s recent content update Operation Oracle remains to be seen, but murmurs among the fandom appear to think so. Interestingly, the leak lines up with a now redacted, spoiler-heavy post on the Ghost Recon subreddit, which stated:

“[The next game is] Ghost Recon Breakpoint, seems to be a story driven 4 player experience against Cole D. Walker (gone rogue, seems he killed Holt and Midas, possibly Weaver too) and his army of mostly weaponized drones. Is coming out on October 4th this year, PC, PS4, and XBOX. […] [The reveal is] showing a sequence in quite nice jungle, with mud mechanics, then to clearing an outpost.”

No official word has come from Ubisoft yet, so Ghost Recon fans should sit tight before the developer officially reveals the game May 9 at 11:30 AM PDT.

Bohemia Interactive Says ARMA 3 ‘Contact’ is an Idea It Has “Wanted to Explore for Years”

The project lead of ARMA 3 ‘Contact’, Joris-Jan van ‘t Land, has explained why Bohemia Interactive opted to focus on an alien invasion for the new spin-off expansion.

In an upcoming interview with OnlySP, van ‘t Land outlined the reasoning behind creating a new extra-terrestrial spin-off expansion for ARMA 3 instead of developing a brand new project like ARMA 4.

On the official ARMA 3 Contact announcement trailer page, fans of the ARMA franchise left comments which appears to indicate that public opinion is in favour of a whole new game. However, van ‘t Land explained that ‘Contact’ actually came into existence because the Amsterdam studio was specifically set up to flesh out new ideas and create new IPs within the ARMA series.

“‘Contact’ originated from our relatively small Amsterdam studio, a team which was formed to develop original ideas for Bohemia. That specifically meant doing less traditional projects, even if they were DLC or expansions to an existing game.”

“Initially ‘Contact’ was not even specified to be an ARMA 3 expansion. We considered even a stand-alone game, but ultimately the benefits of the expansion route were far too great.” He continued, “It meant we could make use of a massive sandbox, and ARMA 3 players would benefit from additions even if they do not care about the setting. Without ‘Contact’, there likely would not have been another official ARMA 3 DLC or expansion, aside from our Creator DLC program of course.

van ‘t Land also revealed that many in the ARMA 3 production team have been wanting to explore the alien sci-fi genre for years, but now they finally got a chance to develop their ideas.

“The ‘first contact’ premise is one many in our team have wanted to explore for years. Some know that during its pre-production stage, ARMA 3 itself had some less conventional elements under its ‘Futura’ codename. We had done our own experiments with the topic on the side for fun, but now pitched it as an actual project, and were fortunately given the chance.”

ARMA 3 Contact is set to be released on 25 July 2019 on PC. The full interview with van ‘t Land will be available tomorrow.
