For a while now Ubisoft have been telling the public to keep an eye out for news, and have teased us in many ways that a new game may be coming.
Remember back in December when Ubisoft trademarked the name Ghost Recon: Future Soldier? Today Ubisoft announced that this will in fact be the next game in the Ghost Recon series.
The game was announced via Xbox Live with nothing but the following information;
LONDON – February 9, 2010 – Today Ubisoft announced that Tom Clancy™’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier™ is in development at Ubisoft’s Paris studio and is scheduled to be released worldwide Holiday 2010.
Created by the award-winning team behind Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter® and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter® 2, the game will feature cutting-edge technology, prototype high-tech weaponry, and state-of-the-art single-player and multiplayer modes. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier will go beyond the core Ghost Recon franchise and deliver a fresh gameplay experience, with an unparalleled level of quality that will excite long-time fans and newcomers alike.
Ubisoft is offering gamers a chance to be the first to play Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier’s Multiplayer Beta this summer 2010. This exclusive beta invitation will be available for a limited time to customers who purchase Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction™ for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, which releases on 16 April 2010.

I’ve been a big fan of Ghost Recon right form the start with Advance Warfighter 2 being my favourite game of all time, so of course I’m very excited to see what Ubisoft do with the new game, I just hope it doesn’t go down the splinter cell route and be exclusive to the Xbox 360 & PC.
