Ghost Recon Breakpoint didn't benefit from the best reception at launch. From its egregious approach to monetization to deeper design choices and other issues, both fans and critics had plenty negative to say about Ubisoft's latest open-world military shooter.
With the title now out for almost two months, publisher and developer Ubisoft has assured the Ghost Recon Breakpoint community that it is "committed to improving it", while outlaying future plans and revealing a roadmap for the near future.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint Roadmap
Ubisoft is aware of issues with Ghost Recon Breakpoint's technical state and plans to address both bugs and stability in upcoming patches. The first step on this road was October 15's Update 1.0.2, which will be followed by two more updates coming in November.
As far as post-launch content goes, Ghost Recon Breakpoint will be supported "in the long term", its first raid, Project Titan, dropping as early as December. Shortly after, the Terminator Live Event will kick off.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint's approach at monetization that saw an overwhelming number of in-game elements purchasable through microtransactions was one of the main criticisms brought up. To that extent, Ubisoft is "working to make adjustments according to players’ feedback in the next few weeks", for a more "comfortable" experience. What that means is anyone's guess, at this point.
AI companions and increased freedom of choice round off the list of things Ubisoft plans to address, although it'll take a while to see either added to Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
Ubisoft's CEO described Ghost Recon Breakpoint's sales and critical reception as "very disappointing" in the publisher's latest financial report.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint is out now on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
