Ubisoft Cancels Ghost Recon Frontline and Splinter Cell VR

The publisher announced that it has halted the development of Ghost Recon Frontline and Splinter Cell VR, as well as two announced titles.

During a recent financial call, Ubisoft revealed that it has ceased the development of Ghost Recon Frontline and Splinter Cell VR, as well as two other titles that had not yet been announced.

According to the company's chief financial officer Frederick Duguet, canceling these games was a cost-cutting measure as Ubisoft is currently focusing on its "biggest development opportunities."

Ghost Recon Frontline was unveiled last October as a free-to-play battle royale game. It should have featured 100+ player matches across a large map and was positioned as Ubisoft's next big live-service title. Frontline was largely criticized by fans who were disappointed with the direction of the series – this caused Ubisoft to delay and later cancel a planned playtest.

Splinter Cell VR was announced in September 2021. Not much was known about the title, except for a brief teaser from Ubisoft CEO Yves Guilmont who said that the title would bring "some new type of experiences but more on different devices." The title was planned in collaboration with Meta and would have been exclusive to Meta headsets.

Alongside Splinter Cell VR, Assassin's Creed VR was revealed – apparently, the title is still in development as Ubisoft hasn't made any official announcements regarding other announced titles. Anyway, we'll learn more about the upcoming games in the Assassin's Creed franchise soon as Ubisoft promised to unveil "the future of Assassin's Creed" during its games showcase event that will take place in September.
