Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers Coming to the Wii

A version of Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers, confirmed earlier today by Ubisoft, will be coming to Wii, the company announced today.


Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed that the upcoming shooter will be coming to all platforms when it hits, including the Wii.


The game will be different though, he pointed out. It will be developed by a different team than the one working on the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game. And it will have a "different approach created for the Wii population."

So it sounds like you should be expecting something along the lines of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Reflex Edition, as opposed to a near port of the other consoles' game.

Ubisoft says Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier will "go beyond the core Ghost Recon franchise and deliver a fresh gameplay experience, with an unparalleled level of quality that will excite long-time fans and newcomers alike."

A multiplayer beta for the game hits this summer for the Xbox 360 version, which will be released on April 13.

This is going to go swimmingly, I have a feeling. I'm sure there are a lot of casual-to-moderate gamers who are looking to make the jump to Ghost Recon. What can possibly go wrong?

Here's a thought: we know that these dumbed down versions of other console's games don't work. So why not try making the same game (as much as possible) for Wii and finding out if there's a market for that sort of thing?

It seems like Modern Warfare: Reflex tried to stay as close as possible to MW and is selling better than the other bastardizations, so maybe there's something to that idea.
