Beta is “not the finished product” according to employee.
The closed beta for Ghost Recon: Wildlands went live on February 3rd and despite still being a month off from release, the feedback has been rather critical of the game’s direction. From the relative emptiness of the open world outside of the missions to the experience “not being Ghost Recon“, some Reddit fans aren’t exactly happy.
Ubisoft employee Keeba responded to several such threads on Reddit, noting even on the positive ones that, “The beta is not the finished product, and we are definitely working hard to make improvements before launch.”
Keeba also noted on this thread that, “If it makes you feel any better, I can assure you that there have been optimizations and changes made based on player feedback from previous tests. I forward all the feedback I see on various channels to the dev team, and they try to make adjustments and optimizations as they can, according to that feedback.”
Tom Clancy’s The Division comes up as a good example of a beta which improved greatly with its developer quashing some 10,000 bugs before the official launch. What are your thoughts on the Ghost Recon: Wildlands closed beta? Let us know below.
