Ghost Recon Mystery Deepens Again
Ghost Recon 4 is one of those games that exists (it was officially unveiled back in April), but details are few and far between. All we we know is that it'll be available some time next year.
But this new rumor has sparked some definite discussion, especially amongst those who loved Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter. The Australian Classification Board is in the news for something besides re-rating Aliens vs. Predator; they also recently classified some game called "Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Predator." But according to GameSpot, the picture becomes even more clouded when we look at a US Patent & Trademark filing by Ubisoft, registered on December 14 for the name, "Ghost Recon Future Soldier," to be used in "game software and electronic game programs." The popular theory now is that the latter project will feature the Future Soldier programs being conducted by the US and its NATO allies, which is a part of the US Army's Brigade Combat Team Modernization Program. This program helps battle soldiers become equipped with the latest and greatest; the highest of high-tech equipment for dealing with the terrors of combat. But who knows? Right now, it's anyone's guess as to exactly what Ubisoft is planning, but we do like the fact that Ghost Recon is returning in some capacity.
For military aficionados, especially those who may have been looking forward to the now-canceled Six Days in Fallujah, whatever iteration of Ghost Recon arrives will be satisfactory. But then again, we're always looking for something better than "satisfactory."
