Ghost Recon Breakpoint: The Discord Episode
As said above, sales and returns were significantly below Ubisoft’s expectations, which however assumed that it had missed its target. During an assessment, Yves Guillemot had identified negative factors such as an exit too close to Wildlands, wobbly novelties, few elements of differentiation and a concern for finishing. But that was in the short term, because the title also tarnished its reputation because of too much greed.
First there was the rollback on microtransactions, as well as the failed attempt at NFTs in software with Ubisoft Quartz. Two features that will only have contributed to sinking Ghost Recon Breakpoint further.
If you still want to get an idea, this opus is available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. The franchise will write the rest of its history with Frontline, a free-to-play battle royale.
