Since Ubisoft formally announced Ghost Recon 4
back in April, news on the game -- or anything Ghost Recon
-related, for that matter -- has been pretty scant. If a trademark
discovered by Superannuation
recently is any indication of where the series is going, however, then it seems "the Ghosts" are going into the future
. Just this week, Ubisoft trademarked "Ghost Recon: Future Soldier" with the usual "game software and electronic game programs" descriptor for video game trademarks.
In fairness, the Ghost Recon
games have always been set a bit into the future, with Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2
taking place in the not-so-distant 2014. Will the French game publisher take the next step and bring the series into the somewhat-more-distant future? 2015, perhaps? We've heard that, by then, you won't need roads
. Think of that!
