Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint release in 2019 may not have lived up to initial expectations, but Ubisoft’s continued support for the tactical shooter has given it a new life. Even now, Ubisoft continues with post-launch support for Ghost Recon Breakpoint, and judging from the latest announcement, support won’t be ending anytime soon. In a recently released 2021 roadmap for Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ubisoft revealed plans for at least two major updates coming to the game.
The first update is the highly anticipated 4.0.0 “Teammate Experience Update” for Ghost Recon Breakpoint, tentatively scheduled for release in late spring. The main focus of the Teammate Experience Update is on improving AI teammates, which were introduced in a previous update. Not only will AI teammates get smarter, but there will also be fun new features that tie into AI squads. For example, a new XP progression system for AI teammates, new skills and abilities, plus a quest log that offers rewards.
The other update that Ubisoft revealed is update 4.1.0 for the Ghost Recon Breakpoint title. While Ubisoft is willing to say that this is an update worth waiting for, it’s not ready to fully reveal its plans. All that is clear is that this will be the next big Ghost Recon Breakpoint Operation. In fact, Ubisoft describes it as one of the most important Ghost Recon Breakpoint operations yet. All Ubisoft is willing to say for now is that 4.1.0 will be released this fall.
These two updates make up Ubisoft’s roadmap for the entirety of 2021. That doesn’t mean that Ubisoft won’t provide smaller updates in between either, as it addresses any bugs that may come along the way. But otherwise, Ubisoft is not mocking or hinting at any additional content for the game. This could be the last year of content planned for Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
Starting in October 2019, Ubisoft released the first Ghost Recon Breakpoint Operation, Greenstone. It followed with Deep State, then Red Patriot in 2020. 2021 started strong with the launch of the most recent Operation for Breakpoint. That’s Amber Sky, who really connected with the connection between Breakpoint, Siege, and Wildlands. It’s a great status quo to look forward to the content of 2021.
Given that the Ghost Recon franchise has a 20-year legacy, Ubisoft’s support for the end of Breakpoint likely implies that the next chapter is approaching. Ubisoft hasn’t announced a new game yet, of course, but with the Breakpoint 2021 roadmap in mind, Ghost Recon fans should probably keep an eye out for upcoming Ubisoft events.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint is available now on PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One.
