Ubisoft’s Yann Suquet has told GamerZines that the publisher “hopes to interest” Call of Duty players with Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, suggesting that the game’s ‘wow’ moments and pacing have both been inspired by Activision’s shooter giant.
“We’re definitely expecting to get some or most of their (Call of Duty’s) customers interested in Ghost Recon, but we’re not trying to mimic them,” said Suquet speaking to us at a recent GR: FS preview event.
“We have a different experience and we definitely hope to interest Call of Duty and military shooter fans, but we’re not limited to them.”
But how does Ubisoft hope to do this? Suquet continues:
“We definitely have some ‘wow’ moments and some of that pacing, but our approach is different. For instance, we’re absolutely not scripted. Those games are scripted, and they’re awesome but they have their limits.
“They changed something in the shooter market, but we believe we have something that is relevant and has something different to offer.”
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is finally due for release in May on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A PC version will follow at a later date.
It was revealed this morning that owners of Splinter Cell Conviction will be given one week’s early access to the upcoming Ghost Recon: Future Soldier beta, which is due to hit Xbox Live and PSN in April.
We went hands on with the game earlier this month, and Ubisoft Paris certainly seems to have dialled up the action. In our opinion, the game strikes us as being more like Army of Two than Advanced Warfighter…
