Ubisoft Singapore has announced that its free-to-play PC game Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Phantoms will be shutting down.

Service will end on December 1. The developers left the following message on the game’s website thanking all of the game’s players:

After more than four years of battles, fights, deaths and a lot of fun, we have made the difficult decision to close Ghost Recon Phantoms.  It’s a tough day for our studio and indeed the team, some of whom have been working on this project since its inception some 7 years ago.

GR Phantoms has been a tremendous undertaking and we really relished the opportunity to bring to you a different take on the GR franchise.  We are proud of what we have achieved but of course, a game like this would be nothing without its community. We’d like to sincerely thank you for your support, enthusiasm, patience and above all, your loyalty. For the hours played, the fun in your company, the never ending deaths at Balaklava Sub-Pen, the fights to control Tomsk-9, the sounds of shotguns and the fear of the P90 SD WAR, we are grateful.

We would like to thank you for all this great moments and fun we shared with you. GRP has been a great adventure for us, with you.

The shutdown of the game will take place on December the 1st. The game will stay available until then, and we wish you a lot of fights until the end. The in game shop will remain available, but you won’t have any more the possibility to purchase Ghost Coins.

We encourage you to use this time to use any Ghost Coins you have – as well as settle any scores you may have with opposing teams!

In line with our terms of sale, we hereby inform you that there will be no refund of any virtual currency you have spent in the game or for any resources you still may own on shutdown date, nor any conversion of any remaining virtual currency to another game.

Once again, thank you for your support and loyalty and we hope you have enjoyed the ride as much as we have. This is the end for one chapter of the Ghost Recon story, but for sure it won’t be the last. Thanks to your reports, your feedback, we are building every day better games, greater stories you will live in our company.

So this is not a goodbye. We’ll see you soon, in another adventure!

Your GR Phantoms Team
