Ubisoft announced on August 25th, 2016 via the game’s official forum that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Phantoms would be shut down on December 1st, 2016. A somewhat generic explanation for the shutdown of this and three other free-to-play titles was given on a separate FAQ page.
“[Name of Game] was not as successful as we had hoped for, so we had to make the decision to close the game. This decision wasn’t easy for us and we tried to find other ways. But in the end we decided to close the game and focus on other projects.”
The announcement also confirmed that the official website, forum and social media channels will be retired alongside the game.
