Ubisoft Reveals Ghost Recon: Wildlands Open Beta
We are fast approaching the end of the calendar year, and with that comes everyone’s favorite season of giving: the year-end fiscal review meeting season. Ubisoft held an earnings call in key figures in the company discussed the first half of their 2016-2017 fiscal year, which ended on September 30th. Aside from the usual discussions of sales figures, one interesting bit of news emerged. During the call, it was mentioned that Ubisoft’s upcoming Tom Clancy game Ghost Recon: Wildlands would have an open beta before the game releases in March.
Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot specifically stated during the earnings call that the Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta would arrive “next quarter”, which would consist of January through March of next year. No other information was given regarding the release date, but considering that the full game’s release date is scheduled for March 7th, one could reasonably assume that the beta would begin in January or early February. Guillemot also confirmed that there would be closed betas as well, and that both of these betas are meant to give players a better picture of what the game will be about.
Ultimately, I believe that providing for the open beta will be a good move for Ubisoft. This game does look promising, and assuming that development does not provide any major problems, it will hopefully provide some good faith to those interesting in playing Wildlands that are afraid of issues like the many that plagued Ubisoft’s launch of The Division earlier this year. What do you guys think? Will you give the Ghost Recon: Wildlands beta a try when it arrives? Will you be playing the full game when it launches? Let us know in the comments down below!
