A new Ubisoft blog update on Ghost Recon Breakpoint outlines the current state of the game and plans for the future.

First, the technical state of the game is set to improve as a top priority,

“With Title Update 1.0.2, released on October 15, our team made numerous improvements to the game, focusing on the most pressing issues that could be addressed in this timeframe. We are working on further improvements that will be coming soon with TU1.0.3 in mid-November, including fixes on the Drone deployment, on changing the fire rate, on NVGs blocking crosshairs and on the Mission Completion notification pop-up”

Title Update, which will arrive in late November, is set to include further improvements and updates. Be sure to check here for a list of known issues and high priority issues.

Post launch content is discussed with Project Titan, their first raid, releasing in December. The Terminator Live Event will release shortly afterwards.

The in-game economy is was also addressed,

“We also heard the criticism regarding the in-game economy. That is why we are currently working to make adjustments according to players’ feedback in the next few weeks, making the experience for players more comfortable.”

AI teammates, which were promised at E3, will be some more time since the game was designed to be a solo experience with up to four human co-op partners,

“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.”

Finally, “freedom of choice” was addressed which discusses the current direction of the Ghost Recon franchise,

“We are happy to see players embracing the new elements of the game, but we also understand that there are areas of improvements. Some of you would like our new survival mechanics to have more impact on your experience, while others dislike the tiered loot progression we have added.

In line with this vision and the feedback we received, we are working on a more radical and immersive version of Ghost Recon Breakpoint. We also want to let you tailor your experience to the way you want to enjoy the game, since freedom of choice has always been part of the Ghost Recon DNA.”

Exactly what this entails is still a mystery. This update comes shortly after Ubisoft effectively admitted to the failure of Ghost Recon Breakpoint, and delaying all future titles to ensure quality.
