Update: Ubisoft Announces Ghost Recon World Premiere Event for Later This Week

Update 5/6: Ubisoft officially announced that a Ghost Recon world premiere event is coming on May 9 at 11:30 a.m. PT.

Revealed through Twitter, the announcement reads “Calling all Ghosts. Tune into the #GhostRecon World Premiere event May 9 at 11:30 am PT.” Ubisoft did not specifically relate this announcement to Wildlands, though considering last week’s tease involving Skell Technology, it’s still likely related to the open world title. Fans can watch the live announcement through an Ubisoft YouTube livestream.

Though a sequel to Wildlands is certainly possible, Ubisoft announced on Tuesday that the original Wildlands, which was released just over two years ago, would receive new DLC involving a character played by Punisher actor Jon Bernthal. This DLC sees his character Cole Walker taking on Operation Oracle, a mission to rescue a Skell Tech engineer taken hostage by Unidad. This free update was released yesterday, starting an extended free weekend of Wildlands for PC, PS4 and Xbox One through May 5.

In our review of Wildlands, we called the game “Good” saying it “has issues with repetition, but its co-op antics make it an entertaining military shooter.”
