Fans of Ghost Recon have been waiting years for Ubisoft to release Future Soldier, we aren’t going to recap on all of the delays this game has seen, however today we can confirm the release date which has been revealed.
We knew that the game was scheduled for a Q1 2012 release, but now we can confirm that gamers will be able to get their hands on GR: FS on March 6, this gives developers plenty of time to resolve bugs which are spotted during the January beta testing.
Ubisoft first confirmed that they were working on a new Ghost Recon game back in early 2009, which means developers have been hard at work on the game for three years, the last game in the series to hit PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 was Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 – this arrived in March 2007, so the Future Soldier release is long overdue.
The news of a release date occurring on March 6 came following retailers such as Amazon, Gamefly, GameStop and Target updating the game’s release date on their websites, JoyStiq then contacted Ubisoft and the release date was confirmed by the game publisher / developer. We are not sure if this date will vary for European gamers, however if the dates do vary it will probably only be by a few days.
Recently the Product-Reviews team managed to get some brief hands on time with an early build of the game at EuroGamer 2011, it has to be said that things seemed very smooth, however we have to admit that we did struggle a bit as it had been so long since we have played a Ghost Recon game – the main thing was that we spotted no major issues which could hamper Ubisoft’s release plans.
Have you waited a long time for this game? If so, are you still as excited as you once were?
