Ghost Recon Wildlands and Tom Clancy's Series

by Gina Lees

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is part of the Ghost Recon franchise that sits with five other series in the Tom Clancy games.

The full Tom Clancy series has been developed by the video game company Red Storm Entertainment, which Tom Clancy co-founded. Ubisoft saw the incredible games that emerged from Red Storm and bought the company, but continued to publish the titles under Tom Clancy’s name.

The Tom Clancy series specialises in tactical shooter franchises, which began with the game developed from one of Clancy’s novels, The Hunt for Red October.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Map

When Ubisoft started to create the Ghost Recon Wildlands map, authenticity was at the core of what they wanted to achieve. The game is set in Bolivia in South America, which offers a desolate and raw setting that extends to all areas of the game.
