Ghost Recon: Wildlands Betas Had More Than 6.8 Million Players

The open beta ended February 27 as Ubisoft gears for a March 7 release.


Ubisoft is gearing up for the launch of Ghost Recon: Wildlands next week, and if participation in the betas is any indication of potential success, then the company could have a blockbuster on its hands.

In all, more than 6.8 million people participated in the open and closed betas, the last one ending a few days ago on February 27. More than 2 billion minutes were played and more than 60 percent of players played co-op in the open beta.

The betas only opened two of the 21 provinces that will be available in the full game, with both providing different gameplay experiences. Ubisoft said it received some valuable feedback from players in both betas and the technical test, and will reward players who participated with access to the Unidad Conspiracy reward. The reward will include three exclusive missions set in the Media Luna region, one of the Unidad strongholds, and will be available some time after the game launches on March 7.

If you are interested in the game, but did not participate in the betas, Ubisoft has a live-action promo video from Ghost Recon: Wildlands on Amazon Prime called War Within the Cartel, which looks at the inner workings of the Santa Blanca drug group.

        People love free games. Very few of them will show up to play it when it is sold though. We will see Titanfall 2 numbers in it pretty quickly.

          The user count is so low they migrated the titanfall servers to a raspberry pi

        It'll be a pretty solid bargain bin game.

      And 6.75 million players saying "sure is pretty, what a shame this couldn't be more MMO'ish". Disappointed, really lonely and boring without 3 friends in your group and I need loot damnit. Where's my carrot on a stick in this game? Fun for about an hour or two for my group of friends playing together.

      Some day can we please get a beautiful open world MMO'ish type of game with guns and semi-realism instead of elves and gnomes with magic wands?
