Now Playing: Ubisoft Is Hosting A Ghost Recon World Premiere On May 9 - GS News Update

Update: It appears that the new Ghost Recon game has leaked ahead of this week's reveal event. A listing for a title called Ghost Recon: Breakpoint was discovered on Ubisoft's online store. The listing has since been removed, but it appears the game will launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC this October and follow 2017's installment, Ghost Recon Wildlands. Ubisoft hasn't confirmed the leak, but we'll likely get our first official look at the game during today's livestream, which you can watch right here on GameSpot. [Update 2: The livestream is now over, and it has confirmed Ghost Recon Breakpoint is on the way.] The original story follows.

Ubisoft is getting ready to pull back the curtain on something new for the Ghost Recon franchise. The publisher has announced it will host a Ghost Recon World Premiere event this Thursday, May 9, beginning at 11:30 AM PT / 2:30 PM ET / 7:30 PM BST, which will give fans around the globe their first glimpse at what's next for the series.

Beyond the date and time of the event, Ubisoft hasn't shared any other details about its Ghost Recon stream, so it remains to be seen what it'll reveal. The fact that the publisher isn't linking the event to 2017's Ghost Recon Wildlands, which it has supported since launch, indicates the reveal could be something entirely new. Curiously, the link associated with the upcoming stream leads to a Skell Technology website, which fans will recognize is the recurring tech company that has appeared in various Ubisoft games, including the aforementioned Wildlands.

The Ghost Recon World Premiere announcement arrives on the heels of Wildlands' latest expansion, Operation Oracle. That content update notably added two new missions to the tactical shooter, which involve extracting a Skell Tech engineer who was arrested by Unidad--potentially tying it to this week's upcoming Ghost Recon event, although that remains unconfirmed.

In addition to the two new missions, Operation Oracle introduced a new Ghost Team Leader, Major Cole D. Walker. Players who complete the operation will also earn two new rewards: Walker's Bracelet (which equips a new CQC Finisher) and Walker's Tattoo for your arm. You can find the full patch notes for Operation Oracle on the official Ghost Recon Wildlands website.

Ghost Recon Wildlands is available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. GameSpot called it "a squad based Tom Clancy game that plays by the numbers" and gave it a 7/10 in our original Wildlands review, writing, "While its main strength is its mission diversity, it doesn’t take long to lose the motivation after reaching El Sueno's doorstep. Even with a foursome of highly trained friends, Wildlands eventually reveals its diminishing returns."

Of all the games I feel deserve an HD/4k remake the original Ghost Recon (xbox edition) is probably at the very top.

It's time for a Wildlands sequel. Imagine that game with endgame content like Division 2. One can dream...

A new Ghost Recon huh well that's interesting bout time we get some good news. Me personally I hope it's open world like Wildlands but has all future tech like Future Soldier did. So we get active stealth camo to make us invisible and a drone that can actually spot and shoot targets with a silenced rifle attachment. And futurist vehicles like tanks choppers and planes but futuristic varients of them. Man that shit would be cool as **** bonus points for some kind of exosuit you can unlock that gives you enhanced strength speed and agility that be freaking awesome but we'll see what Ubisoft does if this even turns out to be anything.

Please be more in line with the originals. I've enjoyed them all but nothing beats the first and its expansions.
