Trivia / Ghost Recon

  • Banned In South Korea: Both versions of Ghost Recon 2 were previously banned due to a law forbidding games depicting war on the Korean peninsula. It has since lifted its ban on the series as a way of promoting freedom of speech.
  • Name's the Same: There's another elite special forces unit called the "Ghosts" in Call of Duty: Ghosts, and another one in GHOST Squad.
  • Technology Marches On: Many of the exotic weapons used in the series, such as the OICW and XM8, have had their development discontinued.
  • What Could Have Been: The build of Future Soldier shown at E3 2010 is almost nothing like the final game, featuring a completely different interface, level design and more overtly futuristic elements such as exoskeletons and shoulder-mounted rocket launchers. However, negative fan reception and Ubisoft's thinking that this version strayed too far from the rest of the series lead to it being scrapped and the game being revamped.
