In a message on Twitter, Ubisoft announced that they have postponed the closed beta test for their recently revealed battle royale Ghost Recon Frontline.
Ubisoft have confirmed they are delaying the closed beta test for Ghost Recon Frontline. The publisher did not state the reason behind the delay but it's safe to say that the backlash from players certainly did not help.
The new date for the closed beta was not shared, which is weird, but Ubisoft did say they will share more info as soon as possible.
It looks like Ubisoft are considering their options with Ghost Recon Frontline and we would not be surprised if they completely canned the project. The backlash from the Ghost Recon community was pretty significant. Players would rather have something akin to older Ghost Recon games than a battle royale, but Ubisoft rarely listens to their community.
Here is the announcement from the publisher in full:
"We have decided it is best to postpone the Closed Test for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Frontline. The development team is dedicated to creating the best experience possible.
We'll share details on the new date for the Closed Test as soon as we can. Thank you for your ongoing support."
Ghost Recon Frontline still does not have a release date but we expect to hear more about the game in the coming year. As for the platforms, it's safe to assume that the game will be coming to last-gen and current-gen consoles as well as PC.
