Ubisoft isn’t a stranger to PC game delays, which is why it didn’t come as much of a surprise when the company announced that Ghost Recon: Future Soldier would launch later on the PC than it would on consoles. At least it’s coming to the mouse and keyboard platform, right? After all, we previously had talk regarding whether or not that would even happen, as a free online version was expected to release in its place.
Folks who’ve been following the game’s progress will know that the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the shooter will be released on May 22nd if things stay the same. However, the mentioned PC version’s launch date wasn’t made public until just now. Through press release means, the publisher has revealed that personal computing gamers will be able to pick-up the much-anticipated title on June 13.
