You may recall past rumors of a new Ghost Recon game, rumors that we pretty much jumped at. We can't help it: twelve player co-op...four-player splitscreen online and locally...this is GRAW 2's legacy, and we can't help but drool over the prospects of yet more good tactical co-op action.
Finally, a new title in the series has been made official - welcome Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier to the long list of 2010 games that we'll be keeping our eye on. So far, co-op has not been confirmed...but in a smooth marketing move that suggests a likening of the two, Ubisoft has announced that anyone who purchases Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction will have access to a summer multiplayer beta program for Future Soldier.
