Ubisoft has released the 2021 roadmap for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, which includes improving AI teammates and…something else?
It ain’t much, but it’s honest work (?)
The roadmap can be accessed on a blog page, but that doesn’t tell us much. There are only 2 things on the roadmap, both being title updates:
- Title Update 4.0.0 (Spring end) – “Focus on improving the players experience with AI teammates, including a new progression system, added customisation and more features requested by the community.”
- Title Update 4.1.0 (Fall 2021) – “Set to be one of the biggest operations so far, will release in the fall.”
Aside from these, there’s not much else to be gleaned from the blog post. Ubisoft elaborated on the first title update a little bit, saying the following about the improvements coming to the AI teams:
“The Teammate Experience Update is focused on improving your experience with your AI squad, while also adding some community requested features. Discover a new XP progression for your AI squad, and unlock new passive skills and abilities as you play. A dedicated quest log will also be available for you to experiment with the new AI squad features while rewarding you with cool and exclusive rewards!”
It’s no secret that Breakpoint was the point where Ubisoft had a complete meltdown (ironic) over its release schedule, delaying all games it had scheduled around this game’s release to later dates. Since then, the French developer has restructured its content delivery slightly, relying slightly less on broken games being pushed out at launch.
While Breakpoint did not fare well in reviews at launch, it has gotten better. This seems to be a running theme with live service games, and the 2021 roadmap should only bring good things for the Breakpoint’s community.
