Back in November last year, French publisher Ubisoft decided to paint all PC gamers with the same brush, labelled everyone a pirate, and cancelled the PC version of upcoming Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. The compromise for PC gamers was the free-to-play Ghost Recon: Online. Whoopie.
Naturally people were bummed out; especially legitimate Ubisoft customers who’ve, you know, actually paid for games in the past. The good news is that there’s been a change of heart over at Ghost Recon HQ and the PC version of Future Soldier is happening after all. That free-to-play game is still happening as well so PC gamers get a double-dose of Ghost Recon – think of it as consolation for Ubisoft labelling you a pirate.
IP Development Director Adrian Lacey has posted a video announcement in which he breaks the news of a delay for the game, but then softens the blow by confirming the PC release. Console gamers will have to wait until 24 May 2012 for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. As for PC players, there’s no release date as yet, but it is coming! That’s better than nothing, right? Hit the jump for the announcement video.
