Many Ghost Recon Studio Developers Go MIA

August 28, 2010 Written by Corey Schwanz

Many developers have unfortunately been hit by layoffs this summer because of the world’s economic position, such as Rockstar Games and Sony Online Entertainment, and it doesn’t look like it will stop any time soon. Developers of Ubisoft’s upcoming Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Red Storm Entertainment has just been hit by some “realigning of production priorities.”

Ubisoft has trimmed a bunch from their own development studio Red Storm Entertainment today.  38 people will be losing their jobs in the aftermath of rearrangement of company’s finances.  Because of this, Red Storm will not continue to make the single-player campaign for Future Soldier. The Raleigh, North Carolina-based company is most known for the Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon franchises, and will continue to work on the development of the multiplayer component of their current title. The good news out of this however is that most, if not all of the developers from the studio have been given “the opportunity to consider positions in other Ubisoft studios,” according to an official Ubisoft press release.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier will feature cutting-edge technology, high-tech weaponry, and state-of-the-art single-player and multiplayer modes. The game will go beyond the core Ghost Recon franchise by delivering a fresh gameplay experience, which is aiming to appeal to fans as well as newcomers to the franchise. For more information on the game, which will also be available in 3D, head on over to our reveal of the shooter from yesterday.
