This morning Ubisoft went and answered a question I'm sure many of you have been asking, revealing the existence and title of the next installment in the Ghost Recon franchise. It's called Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, and the press release says this sequel is in development at Ubi's Paris studio for a release in Q4. You can jump into an Xbox 360-exclusive multiplayer beta this summer by picking up the next Clancy game, Splinter Cell: Conviction. They call that brand synergy, folks.
 
Anyway, here's the requisite teaser-that-shows-no-gameplay-whatsoever.  

 

  
 
I got extremely comfy using the GRAW acronym colloquially while covering the last two Ghost Recon games, so I have to express some disappointment that this one won't be as easy to refer to in conversation. Grr-fuss? I'm not even sure how you'd say that. To fulfill my very specific need of a more easily spoken title, they could have gone with: 
 
  • Ghost Recon Incendiary Ninja
  • Ghost Recon Airborne Zebra Encounter
  • Ghost Recon Against Violent Youth
    
Hmm. There's probably a reason I don't work in marketing. Do you have a better title of your own? Or an interest in playing a new Ghost Recon? Let's hear about it.

"Yet war is constant"

Perhaps one could go as far to say: "War... war never changes."

I'm all down for some Sci-Fi in my military tactical combat. BF2142 was my favorite Battlefield because of all the liberties it was able to take for the sake of gameplay. Also welcome back.

 Should have gone with Ghost Recon:Evolved Warfight (GREW) or Ghost Recon: Expert Assault Troops (GREAT) or even Ghost Recon: End Year (GREY)

Yay for Harry Potter Invisibility Cloaks. I bet this game will fit in Magicks somewhere too.

@BLipp18:  I noticed that instantly playing Fallout 3. So odd to me that three games now have used this dialog trope in different ways...it's still kind of engaging, though, but funny too.  
 
So I guess it's a battle of philosophy. Has war changed? The battle between Solid Snake and the Brotherhood of Steel begins...NOW!

Not that I really care about Tom Clancy, but weren't they going to do a Rainbow Six game first, and then go back to Ghost Recon? They haven't done one of those games in a while.

On the one hand, this will be a day one purchase for me.
On the other hand, GRFS, is crap.

The contrast in MGS4's and Fallout 3's stances on the permanence of war was my first choice for a lame gimmick upon which to hang this article, but I went with the "not very funny acronyms" thing instead. You win.

This totally comes up in the new bombcast, too. Coincidence? OR FATE?!
