Ubisoft Teases a Ghost Recon Announcement During Skellcon

Ubisoft appears to be making plans for a new Ghost Recon announcement now that they've unveiled an announcement for a fictional convention called "Skellcon."

"Skellcon" is a reference to Skell Technology, a fictional corporation from Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands. The convention is supposed to take place on May 9, 2019 at 11:30 am PT, which naturally means the company will be revealing something related to Wildlands on May 9th.

According to IGN that very well could be Ghost Recon Wildlands 2:

The official Skell Technology website is now promoting Skellcon, advertising this May 9, 2019 event at 11:30 a.m. PT. What this announcement will be is still unknown, but many fans, including those on Reddit, are hoping for something related to Ghost Recon Wildlands 2. The fictional Skell is known for creating technology for both military and civilian uses, notably drone and camouflage tech.

Though a sequel to Wildlands is certainly possible, Ubisoft announced on Tuesday that the original Wildlands, which was released just over two years ago, would receive new DLC involving a character played by Punisher actor Jon Bernthal. This DLC sees his character Cole Walker taking on Operation Oracle, a mission to rescue a Skell Tech engineer taken hostage by Unidad. This free update was released yesterday, starting an extended free weekend of Wildlands for PC, PS4 and Xbox One through May 5.

As IGN points out, based on Ubisoft's Year 3 plans for Wildlands, it seems unlikely that a new game will be announced so soon. But we will probably be hearing more about future DLC for the game in just a few days time.

In related news, Ghost Recon Wildlands is available for free this weekend along with some time-limited event missions.
