Ubisoft announces that it will end all support for Ghost Recon Breakpoint, and there will not be any more new content updates.

p>After hitting shelves back in 2019, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint generally did not gain too much traction from gamers, and most of those who did give the tactical shooter a try were left less than satisfied. Many critical outlets cite that the game itself was a blundering buggy mess with forced grueling RPG mechanics that hurt the overall adventure. With this, developer Ubisoft attempted to set the record straight over the years with various Ghost Recon Breakpoint expansions and fixes that drastically improved the gameplay experience. However, these will be the last to come, as the updates are coming to an end.

For the uninitiated, Ghost Recon Breakpoint is the latest entry in the franchise. Taking place on a fictional chain of islands in the Pacific Ocean known as Auroa, players take control of special forces' agent Nomad, who embarks on the islands to investigate a series of unnatural disturbances involving a futuristic arms manufacturer known as Skell Technology. Although this certainly is an intriguing set-up, it was unanimously labeled as disappointing within the general conscience, as many felt that the narrative struggled to establish itself or stand out from the previously acclaimed Ghost Recon Wildlands venture.

However, despite the lukewarm reception at launch, this did not detract Ubisoft from supporting the game for the next two years. Listening to what the public had to say, the developers set out to iron out and add features to Ghost Recon Breakpoint based on fan feedback, including improved AI teammates, a new XP progression system, plus a mode that removed all the "forced" RPG mechanics. With that said, Ubisoft also incorporated elements that were met with a backlash from gamers, like Ghost Recon Breakpoint's failed NFT Digits. Regardless, Ubisoft's latest announcement for the game is that its post-launch support ends tonight.

Revealed by the official Ghost Recon Twitter account, the tweet simply declares that after "more than 11 updates," "Special Operations with Sam Fisher," and the "brand new Operation Motherland mode," these updates will mark the end of Ghost Recon Breakpoint's support and DLC content. While this means no more features or modes will come to the game, Ubisoft reaffirmed that the multiplayer servers for Ghost Recon Breakpoint (as well as Ghost Recon Wildlands) will stay online, so those who own the game can still play together.

In summary, Ubisoft has clearly put in the work over the years to reinvigorate Ghost Recon Breakpoint and elevate the gameplay experience more in line with what fans expected from the game initially. Now, with the updates ultimately over and the servers remaining online, maybe some gamers will give the Breakpoint a second chance since is now loaded with years-worth of content and fixes.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint is available now on PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One.
