Ubisoft confirms new Ghost Recon reveal trailer arriving on May 9

Ubisoft has announced the world premiere of a new Ghost Recon trailer on May 9. This news confirms speculation surrounding an Easter egg in Wildlands' recently released Operation Oracle

As shared by YouTuber corecross, an invitation to attend an event hosted by the fictional company Skell Technology appears in the DLC. The invitation asks the player to "join us on Aurora" on May 9 at 8:30 p.m. CET / 11:30 a.m. PDT for a conference called Skell Con. This matches the date and time of today's reveal announcement.

The invitation also features a link to Skell Technology's website; the same website the reveal link on the Ghost Recon Twitter page redirects to. A video titled "Civilian Drone Catalog" offers more insight about the company and premise of the upcoming release. "Ever since its creation, Skell Tech has been harnessing innovations in industrial science to serve the common good," asserts Jace Skell, Skell Technology's founder.

After introducing the company, the video provides an overview of Skell Tech's drones "designed to free mankind from its tedious limitations." The lineup includes the Skell Farmer, Skell Pollinator, Skell Doctor, and Skell Handy. Of particular note is the Skell City Cherubim, a drone designed to patrol the streets to keep them "safe and secure." 

It's unclear whether the reveal will be for a new game in the Ghost Recon series or an add-on to Wildlands. Wildlands launched in March 2017 and was the first game in the Ghost Recon franchise to include an open world environment. Given that Operation Oracle centers on rescuing a Skell Tech engineer, the DLC will likely tie in to whatever Ubisoft has in store. The game highlights hint at this, stating: "What you will discover here might very well set the scene for the future." 

Based on the success of Ghost Recon: Wildlands, a sequel may prove the next logical step for Ubisoft.
