Ubisoft announced today during an investor earnings call that they have cancelled development of planned battle royale game Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Frontline, as well as Splinter Cell VR and two unannounced games.
During an investor call, chief financial officer Frederick Duguet said the cancellations were the result of the “uncertain economic environment,” and that it would allow Ubisoft to “even more focus on our biggest development opportunities.”
Ghost Recon Frontline was announced in October last year and was meant to enter a closed beta shortly thereafter. That beta was cancelled 24 hours before it was due to start, with the game’s Twitter account posting a message to say that they were “dedicated to creating the best experience possible.” It was eight days from Frontline being announced to never being heard from again.
Splinter Cell VR was announced in 2020 as an Oculus exclusive alongside Assassin’s Creed VR. Nothing from either of those VR games was shown. A proper Splinter Cell remake was announced in December of last year.
