For some time we have been talking about a possible Battle Royale mode for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, the community has started to request such content and the developers are aware of it, but at the moment it is practically impossible to comply with this request.
In that sense, responding to a question on Twitter, Ubisoft informed the following: “We understand the allure of the Battle Royale game mode and while it may seem like a natural direction for Ghost War. However, it would involve changes in the game structure and technical challenges that are simply impossible to undertake right now.”
So, there is no chance then for a Battle Royale mode in Ghost Recon Wildlands, at least for the time being. On the other hand, the French company has recently announced the new contents of the Year 2, so fans of the game will not be left to out.
In other news, did you know that Ubisoft Massive (author of The Division) is probably working on a new game of Battle Royale not yet announced? According to a source by GameReactor very close to Massive Entertainment, the author of The Division would not only be working on The Division 2 and the Avatar game, but also on a new project of the genre Battle Royale.
According to reports, Ubisoft contacted Massive Entertainment in January to propose the development of a PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite-style Battle Royale, a project to be developed relatively quickly to ride the wave of enthusiasm for the genre.
Massive would have accepted the proposal, provided, however, to be able to use the engine of The Division, part of the assets and gameplay already exists for the new title. It seems unlikely at the moment that the project in question can be shown at E3 2018, here the Swedish studio will present The Division 2, probably out in 2019.
We understand the allure of the Battle Royale game mode and while it may seem like a natural direction for Ghost War. However, it would involve changes in the game structure and technical challenges that are simply impossible to undertake right now.
