Ghost Recon: Breakpoint Will Require an Active Internet Connection, Beta Signups Live

Ubisoft has confirmed that Ghost Recon: Breakpoint will require a persistent internet connection even when playing solo, unlike its predecessor.

Breakpoint is a brand new installment to the Ghost Recon franchise,” the developer told a fan on Twitter. “It’s still a military shooter though, just like Wildlands. It can be played up to four-player co-op or completely solo. The game will require an active internet connection to play.”

In response to another fan, Ubisoft said that the always-online requirement will ensure that all players get the “best experience.”

As expected, this update wasn’t well-received but it’s in line with the developer’s other releases, like The Division and Rainbow Six Siege.

You can try Breakpoint for free before launch by signing up for the beta. You’ll be given the option to select a platform but do note that there’s no guarantee you’ll get in unless you preorder the game.
