Ghost Recon 2 - The Game With Two Faces
6:00 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story

In a recent article on GameSpot, the huge publishing house Ubisoft has revealed that the upcoming sequel to the highly acclaimed strategic shooter Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon will in fact be developed by two separate companies as two different games.

Ghost Recon 2 for the Nintendo Gamecube and the Sony Playstation 2 will be developed at Ubisoft Shanghai, and is being created as a prequel, set seven years earlier, to the PC and Xbox version of the game. This second version of the title, created by Red Storm Entertainment, will continue from the storyline of the Gamecube and Playstation version of the game.

According to Ubisoft, the reason for publishing two different versions of the same title is to allow the separate developers to maximize the potential of each platform. While a new concept in game development, the idea of releasing different versions of a game under the same title is gaining in popularity. Aspyr Media's recent release of Spider-Man 2: The Game was based on the PC version of the game, created by a different developer than the highly-acclaimed console version of the same game.

While no word is out on a Mac version of Ghost Recon 2 is out yet, most of the previous Tom Clancy games have made it to the Mac thanks to Aspyr Media. We can only hope that they will bring us this game as well... no matter which version of the game that would be.

UPDATE - Gaming website HomeLAN Fed has posted an interview with Heather Chandler, producer at Red Storm Entertainment, about their plans for the Xbox version of Ghost Recon 2. -ed
