Ghost Recon Frontline's upcoming closed beta test has been delayed.

Developer/publisher Ubisoft announced the delay to the forthcoming closed beta phase for Ghost Recon Frontline earlier today on October 13, in the tweet seen below. Originally, the closed beta test for Frontline was scheduled to launch later this week on October 14 for PC users only, before expanding to other platforms at an unspecified later date.

Now, it's entirely unclear when the closed beta test for Ghost Recon Frontline could be coming back. Aside from being PC-exclusive, the planned beta test was meant to be only available in select European countries, before eventually expanding to other regions around the world. It's also unclear whether this will happen when the closed test returns.

Ghost Recon Frontline was originally unveiled earlier this month by Ubisoft, as part of its 20th anniversary celebration of the larger Tom Clancy franchise. Aside from unveiling Frontline, Ubisoft also announced that the original Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, which launched all the way back in 2001, would be free for a limited time on PC, as well as making DLC packs for Ghost Recon Breakpoint and Ghost Recon Wildlands would also be temporarily made free for all.
