In recent weeks, Ubisoft continues to find itself in a certain predicament as users do not respond in favor to announcements from the publisher. With the previous announcement for xDefiant, an incubator project combining several Tom Clancy IPs (Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell, The Division), reception for the project finds itself to be not in favor for the first-person shooter when viewing the like-to-dislike ration on its announcement trailer.
More recently, the firm shared a separate venture within the same genre that expands solely on Ghost Recon IP with a battle roayle. Unveiling Ghost Recon Frontline, the new project shapes to be a 100-player experience as teams of three drop into the game as they fight for first place. Similar to xDefiant, the two reveal trailer and gameplay footage both were received negatively on YouTube as well.
This week, Ubisoft on Twitter announced to be shelving the initially scheduled closed playtest for Ghost Recon Frontline to meet expectations for its players.
“We have decided it is best to postpone the Closed Test for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Frontline,” the letterhead reads. “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.”
While one Tom Clancy project is being shelved until further notice, Ubisoft is still set to presume plans for The Division Heartland later this October. In an email sent to players, a closed test is set to commence later this month. You can read the full report by heading here.
