Future Soldier Now Has a Future Release Date

A multiplayer beta will also be coming sometime in the future.

Activision has Modern Warfare, EA has Battlefield and Ubisoft has Ghost Recon.  With the former two enjoying their time in the sun it’s about time for Ghost Recon to join the battle.  The original March release date for the next iteration of the Ghost Recon series, Future Soldier, was pushed back with no replacement date furnished, but now Ubisoft has provided us with a brand new date that’s not too far off the original.

Gamers can now confidently mark their calendars for May 22 in the US and May 24 in Europe for the next chapter in the Tom Clancy: Ghost Recon series on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (PC date is still to come).  Additionally, they’ll want to free up some time in April for the multiplayer beta that will be made available for both consoles.

Adrian Lacy, IP development director at Ubisoft Studios France noted that the decision to move the date was made “in order to ensure that all ingredients are pushed to the highest level and provide a truly unique shooter experience.”
