It was only last week that Ubisoft announced a delay for Ghost Recon Breakpoint’s mysterious new “immersive” mode, pushing it out of its original February release slot. As it turns out, though, it didn’t get pushed very far at all, and Breakpoint’s “immersive” mode will now launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on 24th March.
Breakpoint, of course, wasn’t exactly met with rapturous applause when it launched last October. Eurogamer contributor Vikki Blake, for instance, called it a “half-baked hotchpotch of magpie’d ideas that neither function properly nor mesh” and “a broken, swirling vortex of recycled Ubisoft mechanics stamped across a dismal, forgettable world.”
Its commercial reception was about as positive as its critical one, ultimately forcing Ubisoft to rethink its approach to Breakpoint. Just weeks later, it announced it was working on a “more radical and immersive version”, designed to deliver a “gritty and authentic military experience”.
