The lights are on
A clever Ubisoft forumgoer pulled this slide from the Ubisoft Kiev Facebook page, which seems to indicate a Ghost Recon Future Soldier sequel to be in the works.
Referred to as “GRFS: Next,” the sequel would seem to be not in development at Kiev but at some other (presumably internal Ubisoft) studio.
Future Soldier was released to middling reviews in May of this year. Could Ubi be prepping a sequel to appear on as-yet-unannounced next-gen consoles, given the Kiev studio’s purported expertise working with DirectX 11 (reportedly a big push from Microsoft on next-gen Xbox development)?
For my money, Ghost Recon should get back to its roots and offer real tactical gameplay instead of being yet another me-too modern warfare action shooter. Offer some honest-to-goodness squad tactics and tough real-world situations to try and defuse with elite Special Forces soldiers and I’m on board.
It could happen, right? Right?
The first one was pretty good, but hopefully the second ones better.
I liked the first multiplayer severs needed to be fixed but this probably won't release in a few years.
yeap, they should offer real tactical gameplay. hope the next one is a good one.
Single player was ok but the multi sucked so bad in that game and didn't get patched. DLC should not be released for such a broken game. I see a bomb when I see a sequel in the works for this game. I won't buy another installment and I know many others feel the same way.
After the last Ghost Recon game, this doesn't get me excited at all.

I'd love to see that, but considering what we have seen of Blacklist so far I doupt that Ubisoft will return to real tactical gameplay anytime soon.
I played Future Soldier multiplayer until the disc cracked. The single player was so-so, but I'd love a new FS on new consoles.
I loved the last one, but no variety at all. And in the end, you took an objective and camped. I could sit in a few spots, defend my spot for 2-3 minutes, get kills prevent people from reaching an objective, move repeat. I really hope the next game is more tactical, at first, it was more tactical, but later GRFS was just getting into a server that wasn't lagging on your side and shooting people in the head or tazing and hacking
I agree. The first couple ghost recons were awesome. The new one was really fun, but it lacked something.
This game is great. Multiplayer is good, but has issues... and no one plays anything but Conflict. All and all a great game IMO. I would like to see the next one be a little more tactical, tho.
Continuing the spiral eh?
I loved the first Future Soldier. The multiplayer GAMEPLAY was great, but the matchmaking was just pure awful. The singleplayer was very entertaining.
Can't wait for a sequel that improves on the original. More guns, more character customization, and better graphics. Above all, fix the damn servers, the GRFS ones were the worst I've ever seen.
