Earlier this year, Ghost Recon Wildlands entered its third year of support, a strategy that mirrors many other Ubisoft titles like Rainbow Six Siege, The Division, and more. However, Year 3 may be a bit shorter than previous ones, as a new teaser for the Ghost Recon franchise has many speculating that a new game could be on the horizon. While the actual reveal is scheduled for May 9 at 11:30 AM PDT, new details appear to have already leaked online ahead 0f the event.
Please be aware that there may be potential spoilers for the current Operation Oracle update that recently arrived in Ghost Recon Wildlands.
An image of a collectors edition of an unannounced Ghost Recon game has surfaced online, potentially revealing the newest game in the franchise to be Ghost Recon Breakpoint. The Ubisoft exclusive Wolves Collector's Edition image features a statue of a soldier wearing a hood, mask, and aiming a pistol at an unknown assailant.
Interestingly enough, the figure in the leaked photo appears to line up with the promotional material that Ubisoft has revealed in advance of the May 9 Ghost Recon event. Both images feature a similar looking hooded individual wearing a mask, which many fans have already speculated to be Cole D. Walker, the newest NPC just added in Operation Oracle mission.
Additional rumors surrounding Ghost Recon Breakpoint peg Cole Walker as the primary antagonist, a move that isn't hard to envision based on his motivations regarding what happened to his team in Operation Oracle. Skell Technologies, a corporation that has already been mentioned numerous times in Ghost Recon Wildlands, also figures to be prominent within the story, leading many to assume this game could be a bridge between the styles of Wildlands and Future Soldier.
Outside of an image of the collector's edition and game title, little else is known. It's clear that Ubisoft has additional plans for Cole Walker in some form, as the Operation Oracle content is comprised of only two missions. Therefore, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense for Ubisoft to hire a veteran and well-known actor like Jon Bernthal to portray a character that would only be around for a short piece of content. Either way, fans don't have to wait much longer to get the full details when the Ghost Recon event kicks off tomorrow.
Ghost Recon Wildlands is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
