Ubisoft Cancels Ghost Recon: Frontline and Splinter Cell VR

Ubisoft also cancelled two unannounced titles while delaying another.

Ghost Recon: Frontline and Splinter Cell VR have been cancelled alongside two unannounced titles, Ubisoft has confirmed. Reports of the game cancellations arose following Ubisoft’s quarterly earnings report, where the publisher also revealed that Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora has been delayed to 2023-2024. No additional details were given for why the four titles have been cancelled.

Ghost Recon: Frontline, Ubisoft’s take on another battle royale game, was initially announced in October 2021. Frontline was a free-to-play, class-based shooter set in the Ghost Recon universe and was expected to host more than 100 players per match.

Splinter Cell VR was first announced in September 2020 during the Oculus Connect virtual event. Development on the VR title was being led by Ubisoft’s Red Storm Entertainment.

Despite the cancellations, Ubisoft still has a couple titles lined up for later this year. First up is Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, which launches on October 20, and Skull and Bones, which releases November 8. There’s also Ubisoft’s upcoming free-to-play mobile game The Division: Resurgence, which is currently in closed alpha. We will be sure to update you here as new details emerge.
