A Ghost Recon World Premiere is Coming Later This Week

A Ghost Recon World Premiere is Coming Later This Week

A big Ghost Recon reveal is happening soon.

Ubisoft will be hosting a world premiere event on May 9 for what is presumably the next Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon title. The event will be livestreamed online at 11:30 a.m. PT/2:30 p.m. ET.

After dropping hints through in-game updates and easter eggs, Ubisoft has confirmed that it will indeed be premiering something Ghost Recon related later this week. The most recent clue to this reveal happened in Ghost Recon Wildlands, where a fictional event for Skell Con was spotted in-game with a date for May 9. Many correctly guessed that the in-game date would correspond with a real-world event by Ubisoft.

Details are still sparse as to what this announcement may be. The announcement on Twitter simply says this is a world premiere trailer reveal for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon. The lack of the "Wildlands" title suggests it could be a new Ghost Recon title. Although, Ubisoft has shown commitment to years long live-service updates for its games.

Most recently Ubisoft released "Operation Oracle" for Ghost Recon Wildlands, which features a new character played by actor Jon Bernthal (of Netflix's The Punisher). Before that, Ghost Recon Wildlands held limited crossover events with characters from Rainbow Six Siege and Splinter Cell.

That leaves whatever this week's world premiere is open in terms of announcements. It could be a new game, update, or something else entirely. Either way, if you're at all interested in Ubisoft's Tom Clancy games, you'll do well to tune into Ubisoft's official Twitch or YouTube channel on May 9 at 11:30 a.m. PT/2:30 p.m. ET for this reveal.
