Fawzi Mesmar, Vice President of the Ubisoft Editorial Group, in an interview axios explained the recent cancellation of the free-to-play battle royale Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Frontline.
According to Mesmar, Ghost Recon Frontline didn’t live to see release due to the negative reaction from players who were given the opportunity to try out the project as part of a series of closed tests.
“As a result of the feedback we gathered from players during testing, we came to the conclusion that [Ghost Recon Frontline] does not meet user expectations”explained Mesmar.
Remember Ghost Recon Frontline launched in October 2021. The announcement trailer was literally drowned in dislikes, but Ubisoft wanted to know what players who’ve tried the game think, and not just those who know it from hearsay.
The cancellation of Ghost Recon Frontline was announced at Ubisoft’s July AGM. The game promised large-scale PVP battles (more than 100 people per game), crossplay, and post-launch seasonal support.
