Ghost Recon Wildlands Will Have Multiple Betas

The betas will begin early next year.

Ubisoft has announced there will be multiple beta periods for its upcoming tactical shooter Ghost Recon: Wildlands, with the first beta period expected to launch in early 2017.

According to comments made by Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot during a company investor’s call held earlier today (and reported on by VG24/7), both closed and open beta periods for Ghost Recon: Wildlands are expected to be held starting in the next yearly quarter.

“We expect in the next quarter to do some open betas and closed betas that will help a lot [for] players to actually know what the game is and what it can become.”

For reference, the next quarter will stretch from January to March 2017, so expect more info on the first of what appears to be multiple planned betas for Ghost Recon: Wildlands to arrive within that time period.

Guillemot went on to say that early alpha feedback for Ghost Recon: Wildlands has already been great and that the upcoming betas will allow more gamers to see just how far the game has come since its initial debut.
