Ubisoft's free-to-play battle royale Ghost Recon Frontline has been axed

Ubisoft have officially cancelled Ghost Recon Frontline, a battle royale game that no one really wanted. 

Ghost Recon Frontline is no more. Ubisoft have officially axed the game, almost a year after the not-so-great reveal.

Frontline reveal caused an uproar in the Ghost Recon community last year, which made Ubisoft delay the game's closed beta indefinitely

This was the first indication that the game may never see the light of the day with some reports even suggesting that the development was completely restarted. 

Ghost Recon fans were unhappy that Ubisoft invested resources into something that they did not ask for, instead of working on the next Ghost Recon single-player game.

The announcement of Ghost Recon: Frontline came shortly after Ubisoft announced they are stopping support for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint , another game they had to patch up after the disappointing launch .

Ubisoft had a great opportunity to finally deliver what fans of the series have been asking for but instead, the publisher decided to go for the easy money - online battle royale. Everyone likes these, right?

All in all, we hope that the cancellation of Ghost Recon Frontline means Ubisoft will now switch focus to developing a Ghost Recon game that fans might like. A realistic setting like in Wildlands and strong focus on tactical gameplay is certainly what we would love to see from the next Ghost Recon.

We don't know much about the next Ghost Recon other than it's in development and reportedly codenamed Over. It could launch in 2023/2024, but take that with a grain of salt, since no game seems to be safe at Ubisoft who just cancelled three titles in one day and officially delayed Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.

Ubisoft's obsession with free-to-play battle royale-like projects is set to continue though, as the publisher are looking to release The Division Heartland sometime in the near future.
