During a meeting with its shareholders, Ubisoft revealed to the audience that a Ghost Recon Wildlands beta will be arriving sometime in the next year. The news came from Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, who said that we could expect it sometime in the next quarter, meaning the first three months of 2017.

Considering how many other games are going to be releasing in the first quarter of that year, Ghost Recon Wildlands may have a difficult time getting past hotly anticipated games like For Honor, Persona 5, Nioh, Halo Wars 2, various Kingdom Hearts games, and more, though thankfully it’s not like the Infinite Warfare beta, which launched during the time period when Battlefield One and Titanfall 2 came out.
All the same, a Ghost Recon Wildlands beta would give people an insight into how Ubisoft’s open-world third-person shooter will actually run, which would allow up to four players to travel around Bolivia as they help to take apart a drug ring in South America.
Considering that Wildlands is supposed to be releasing in March, we can likely expect the Wildlands beta in either January or February, likely the second as it gives Ubisoft the opportunity to hype up gamers about the game while also getting data that can be used to improve the game before launch.
Considering that Ubisoft already has at least one multiplayer, open-world third person shooter under its belt in the form of The Division, hopefully they’ll be able to make the Ghost Recons Wildlands beta a better one than The Division, as well as making it so players could use less exploits. Considering that while Wildlands does have the option of multiplayer, it doesn’t have PVP and isn’t an MMO, that shouldn’t be as difficult.
Ghost Recon Wildlands will be coming out on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC on March 7 of next year.
