Today, Ubisoft announced that their latest adventure in the Tom Clancy universe—Ghost Recon: Future Soldier—has officially gone gold. That, of course, means that the game as it stands now is ready to be shipped off and burned onto small shiny discs, discs crafted for either the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 that you may then receive in exchange for currency come May 22nd (or June 12th for you PC folks).
The best part of this announcement wasn’t the fact that the game has gone gold and is ready to be produced, however—it’s the smack talk that was included in said announcement!
“While one of our competitors recently revealed plans to imitate our game’s future technology for their release in the fall, we’re proud to be bringing Ghost Recon: Future Soldier to retail this month,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Ubisoft. “Future Soldier has an unparalleled amount of high-tech weapons, gadgets and technology based on real prototypes currently in development that will show gamers the true meaning of future warfare.”
Daaaaamn! Some fans are already jumping on the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 hate train, EA got in a dig at the next Call of Duty, and now Ubisoft has joined the party. People can be so mean sometimes!
