Game news Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad: Less than a year after release, Ubisoft ends the adventure
Published on 7/21/2021 6:25 PM
Announced in 2019, Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad was released a year later on iOS and Android. Unfortunately, the free-to-play gathering more than 70 characters from the Tom Clancy license did not meet the expected success, nor was it very well received by the critics.
Like a Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle, a Fire Emblem Heroes or a Summoners War, it’s about playing a lot for unlock new characters, form squads and continue to advance. Things were going well, since at no time did Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad don’t push players to spend money. Unfortunately, when it came out, we had in our hands a repetitive play, endowed with unnecessarily complicated interfaces, and suffering from a real lack of originality despite the presence of characters such as Sam Fisher. Less than a year after the game’s official release, Ubisoft has decided to stop the fees. On the official blog of the game, the developers of Studio Owlient announce that the update released today is the last, and that the servers will be shut down on October 4 next.
It is with great sadness that we announce that we will no longer be posting new content for Elite Squad. Today’s update will be our last, and on October 4, 2021, we’ll be shutting down the servers. It was not an easy decision to make, but after exploring several options with our teams, we came to the conclusion that it was no longer viable.
We want to assure you all that we’ve really done our best, especially with big updates like Season 2, and that it has been a truly rewarding experience working with you, our passionate community! We sincerely hope you enjoyed playing with us as much as we enjoyed creating the game and interacting with you on social media and Discord. We hope some of you stick with us and have fun reaching level 70 and unlocking all available characters before you say goodbye.
However, Ubisoft is not abandoning free to play bringing together characters from the Tom Clancy universe, since the publisher announced on Monday Tom Clancy’s XDefiant, a free-to-access multiplayer FPS, is coming soon. The title already promises us a lot of customization, a fluid gameplay and accessible to 6 against 6, and various two modes such as Escort, Domination for Team Deathmatch. The title is expected on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X|S, et PC via Ubisoft Connect, Amazon Luna and Stadia on a date as yet unknown, with crossplay.
