Ubisoft is shutting down the free-to-play 'Ghost Recon'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2016, 8:03 pm
Free-to-play games based on popular franchises were a huge trend for awhile. But, as Microsoft showed us this week by canceling Halo Online for Russia, there are no guarantees for success. Ubisoft is following suit and shutting down Ghost Recon Phantoms, formerly known as Ghost Recon Online. As Gamasutra writes, this was the publisher's maiden voyage into the market when it launched back in 2011.

Quote of the Day – The End of Legends

The Daily Grind: What makes you excited to log into your MMO?
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2016, 8:00 am
I love it when my interest in an MMO hits those occasional spikes where I’m logging in not just because it’s what I do every day but because I’m genuinely excited to play. That may sound terrible, but MMOs are long-term experiences that often contain peaks and valleys of interest as you play through them. For me, getting excited over [...]
