Ghost Recon 2 PC axed
Not enough human resources to go round at Red Storm.
In a statement on the game's official website, Ubisoft has confirmed that Ghost Recon 2 will not make it to PC after all.
The game was first announced around this time last year, and was given a release date of Christmas 2004. Since then very few details have been revealed, and now we know why.
"This decision was not an easy one. We did not want to disappoint the loyal Ghost Recon fans, but we did not want to risk releasing a final product that did not meet their high expectations," said Ubisoft.
"With the launch of Ghost Recon 3 planned for Winter 2005, significant human resources were needed to ensure the quality of the future instalment of the series, thus potentially jeopardising the quality of either Ghost Recon 2 PC or Ghost Recon 3.
"Taking into account their close release dates, and the fact that we felt the third opus would be a much more satisfying and evolved gaming experience, we were forced to conclude that it was in the interest of gamers for us to cancel the PC version of Ghost Recon 2."
Reassuring fans of the series, however, Ubi added: "Ghost Recon 3 on PC will hit shelves the fourth quarter of 2005, so the wait won’t be long, and will definitely be worth it."
