Ghost Recon Breakpoint launched earlier in October and has had a bit of a rocky start. Despite placing at the #6 spot on the NPD rankings with only two days of tracking, Ubisoft stated in a recent conference call for its earnings that the game had been disappointing financially. Players have reported plentiful issues such as glitches as well as obscene microtransactions.
Fortunately, Ubisoft is taking player feedback and today outlined a plan (opens in new tab) to improve the game.
The first thing coming is Title Update 1.0.3, which will bring Drone deployment fixes, stop issues with NVGs blocking crosshairs and improve the Mission Completion notifications. This update is planned for release in mid-November, while a second update will follow at the end of November with more general fixes. Post-launch content is still coming with the first Raid set to arrive in December.
Ubisoft also states that further changes are coming to the in-game economy. AI teammates are also planned to be added into the game however, there's no timeframe on when they'll be coming. Ubisoft also states that while it is too early to provide specific details, the team understands that players want freedom of choice in missions and mechanical changes are also in the works.
All in all, while it may take time, players who want to enjoy the game should be encouraged by this statement. We'll continue to provide updates on what new features or changes are rolled out for Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
A deadly island
A covert ops shooter
Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a military shooter set in a diverse and hostile open world. Players take on the Wolves, elite special ops soldiers just as skilled as any other Ghost. The game can be played solo or with up to four players.

I'm already having fun with the game...transactions haven't bothered me one bit. I rock with what is in the game. From my understanding, all the gear in the store is on the map, you just have to grind to get it. What's so wrong about that? I unno. Bugs here and there but it hasn't bothered the gameplay too much. I do want a revised item and shop interaction experience to that of the Division series. Right now it seems unfinished and rough and way behind the curve of the Division as far as that's concerned. You can't compare weapons of what you have vs. what you are about to pick up. I can't group dismantle items or group sell or buy stuff. That needs to be fixed.
