Why, right here, friend! (Well, it’s actually on Ubisoft’s Youtube channel, but it’s embedded right here!)
Ubisoft “accidentally” leaked a sequel to Ghost Recon yesterday.
We say “accidentally” with a heavy side of air quotes and sarcasm because, in a world where publicity is hard to acquire and attention is fleeting, one surefire way to get tongues wagging is to have people think you done effed up. Very few things unify the masses on social media than poking fun at someone else’s mistake.
We also say “accidentally” because it was leaked on Ubisoft’s own online store, rather than some of the usual suspects, like Gamestop or Zavvi.
Anyway, to cut a long, sarcastic story short, the new Ghost Recon game is being “officially” unveiled today. In about half an hour in fact. Isn’t it convenient they had the reveal video ready to go so soon after the “accidental” leak? Hmmm.
If you want to keep up with the Ghost Recon world premiere, you can watch it with us right here:
If the leaked images are anything to go by, get ready for Jon Bernthal being grumpy. (And a release date for the new Ghost Recon game in Q3 this year.)
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
