Update: It’s coming to PS3, as well. Same time, same developer. More here.
Original: Ubisoft’s announced the latest entry in the Ghost Recon series this morning. That “BIG” announcement they’ve been teasing is in fact Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, in development at Ubisoft’s Paris studio for a holiday 2010 release.
Future Solider promises to bring players “cutting-edge technology, prototype high-tech weaponry, and state-of-the-art single-player and multiplayer modes.” On top of that, the latest Ghost Recon will deliver a new gameplay experience with “an unparalleled level of quality that will excite long-time fans and newcomers alike.” Sounds exciting.
Those who purchase Splinter Cell: Conviction on Xbox 360 will gain access to the multiplayer beta for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, happening this summer.
Ubisoft Community Developer Kimi Matsuzaki says that a video of the game should be hitting Xbox LIVE any minute.
So far, the game is only confirmed for Xbox 360. I think it’s safe to assume this will be a PS3, 360, PC release, though.
