Ubisoft held a survey to see what the players would like in Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Unsurprisingly, many voted they want a Ghost Recon game and not Borderlands with drones, which resulted in Ubisoft confirming they have something in store for early 2020.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint's survey came back with results that surprised no one but Ubisoft apparently. There were several categories about the features players would like to see added as well as potential gameplay changes and other additions.

Unsurprisingly, Ghost Recon players voted they would like a mode that plays like a Ghost Recon game - without tiered loot and other ways of copying looter shooters. Thankfully, Ubisoft had something like that planned already and were working on such a mode during the time the survey was going on.

This new mode was referenced in late October 2019 for the first time but the developers didn't offer detailed info or ETA until now. According to the article regarding the survey results, the "more immersive and radical version of Ghost Recon Breakpoint" is set for release "early next year". The info was located under the "Remove tiered loot & gear score" which means the removal of those two elements is something to look forward to in early 2020.

Furthermore, AI teammates and enemy AI improvement changes are still a work in progress. Stealth detection and reactions were adjusted in a recent update but the team will be looking to improve the behaviour more in the future.

Another top result of the survey was to remove online requirements but Ubisoft are hesitant to do this as they "require more investigation" due to the scope of the potential change. Chances of this happening are slim to say the least since all the "time savers" are hard to sell without an internet connection.
