Artificial Intelligence teammates coming back to Ghost Recon

Ubisoft relents to popular demand and will offer group play again
Ever since Ghost Recon Wildlands was released, the feature to play in teams has been relevant and important within the game. Since the release of Ghost Recon Breakpoint, however, Ubisoft wanted to experiment by providing to the game a full single-player experience and none of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) team members. Ubisoft has now changed its mind and has announced the AI team players are coming back to the game.
Ubisoft made a lot of changes in Ghost Recon during the development phase. These experiments at the end were found negative and that’s not at all what the community was expecting from the game. After the disappointment among their players, along with the massive success that Ghost Recon Wildland had, Ubisoft admitted officially to all claims.
“Ghost Recon Breakpoint was designed from the ground up to be enjoyed in co-op up to four players, and as an innovative pure solo experience. As such, adding back AI Teammates to the game is a major undertaking that will still require time. We will update you as we progress towards their release,” Wrote Ubisoft in an official statement.
Given the fact that things did not happen as expected with this game for Ubisoft, their focus is now to bring back to players an amazing experience. They are now working on bringing back AI teammates to the game, even though the declared at this year’s E3 that it was not a top priority. On top of adding that feature to the game, Ubisoft has mentioned that they will also fix the in-game economy, which is one of the aspects that disappointed players, along with the post-launch content.
