Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands may seem like the ideal candidate to get a Battle Royale mode, but Ubisoft recently shut down all dreams of it happening anytime in the near future.
Basically every popular property on the market right now has fielded requests from fans to implement a Battle Royale mode, following the apocalyptic popularity of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite Battle Royale. The latest target for such a request was Ghost Recon Wildlands, prompting Ubisoft to explain that the changes necessary to make that happen are not feasible at the moment.
We understand the allure of the Battle Royale game mode and while it may seem like a natural direction for Ghost War. However, it would involve changes in the game structure and technical challenges that are simply impossible to undertake right now.

A Battle Royale mode may not be on the game’s horizon, but there is plenty of other content planned for Wildlands‘ second year. This will include both PvE and PvP content, all of which was teased in the game’s recent Year 2 trailer.
Kicking off the game’s second year of content is a particularly special event featuring none other than Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher. Unlike the game’s previous Predator event, the Splinter Cell-themed teaser trailer makes it sound like Fisher will be working side-by-side with the Ghosts for this operation.
