Ubisoft pushes back updates for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint

Ubisoft has opted to push back the incoming updates for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.

In a community update, it was revealed that the new update would not be released until the new year. However, the exact date is yet to be confirmed.

"In our December Update, we announced that we would have our next TU, 1.1.0, live on the 18th. After careful consideration by the development team, we are choosing to delay the release of the TU until the latter half of January to ensure its quality," said a community manager.

"Our goal is to deliver you polished content and meaningful bug fixes, to do that we need a little more time. This means that the Terminator Live Event and the fixes referenced in the monthly update will be coming to you in the new year."

Earlier this month, the company released a roadmap for December. It detailed the plans for the 1.1.0 update: "we are happy to announce that improvements to the enemy AI, base jump mechanic, and night vision goggles are coming," said site update.

"We’re also working on making sure that enemies do not shout when getting hit with a headshot.

"For those of you who experienced the bug that caused loss of NVG/thermal when going to PvP and coming back to PvE, we will have a fix in 1.1.0."

Other improvements the company promised include a fix for the Battle rewards System, Faction Missions and the in-coming live Terminator event.

Back in October, Ubisoft revealed its plans to improve its shooter title. Last month, two updates were dropped in another effort to fix the issues the player base continued to complain about.

The French publisher's CEO Yves Guillemot explained that the game hadn't performed as well as the company hoped. He cited difficulty to create hype for a sequel as one of the causes.

Breakpoint isn't the only Ubisoft game to fall short this year, fellow Tom Clancy title The Division 2 failed to reach expectations. As a result of both shooters shortcomings, the company cut its financial forecast for 2019/20 by 33 per cent.
