SAN FRANCISCO, CA - November 13th 2001: Ubi Soft Entertainment and Red Storm Entertainment are delighted to announce that the title Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon™ has shipped.
Ghost Recon has been developed by Red Storm Entertainment, the studio behind the multi-award winning Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six™ series.
Set in the year 2008, Ghost Recon is a squad based tactical combat game that follows the exploits of a fictional US Special Forces team.
Russia has fallen under the control of ultra-nationalistic leaders intent on rebuilding the Iron Curtain.
