You see, in so many previews and build-ups to the release of Future Soldier, many media outlets have perpetuated the myth that Future Soldier is somehow the next Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter. It’s not, and the quicker we can get that idea out of the way the better it’ll be for Future Soldier. The game may be set in the same universe as the rest of the Ghost Recon franchise, and as such even contains a few characters from the Advanced Warfighter games, but this isn’t a sequel to the Advanced Warfare sub-series, nor is it a direct sequel to any of the games in the Ghost Recon franchise. Rather, this is a new Ghost Recon game, a new sub-series bearing the name, and as such it is, in many ways, different to those that came before. It’s quicker, slicker, more forgiving and a whole lot of fun."
