Ghost Recon: Wildlands Open Beta Coming

Wildlands arrives in March, but you may be able to play it early.


Ubisoft will let you try out Ghost Recon: Wildlands through an open beta coming in the "next quarter," CEO Yves Guillemot said during an earnings call today.

It's not exactly clear what he meant by the "next quarter," but we've followed up with Ubisoft in an attempt to get more details about the timing for the Wildlands beta. Ubisoft today reported earnings for the first half of its fiscal 2016-2017 (ended September 30), with the current quarter being the October-December window. "Next quarter" might mean sometime at the start of 2017. The game itself is scheduled to arrive on March 7, 2017.
