Awesome read, thanks.
The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.
I am on Xbox 360, and I'm hoping there will be a way to custom-map the layout on my controller. Any news about this feature?
Thanks Brock, Red Storm, UbiSoft.
Great interview. There was no holding back with the questions which were in turn followed up by great answers, especially in regards to map size.
I understand the decision now. Look forward to the game release & these maps with direction.
A lot of people on here complain they're asSes off (myself included) but one thing here has got to be acknowledged - even by the knuckle heads.
There are many BIG Game companies that would not even bother speaking out in the forums or immediately fixing things right away, let alone in a Beta.
I respect you for that Ubi, Red Storm.
I have been to many forums and this is not common practice from the BIG corps.
As you can see, there are some still whining on here even after this well placed interview. Just know, there are also some of us on here whom appreciate your approach, candidness to your customers & fans all the same. Thanks.

This may seem a lil bit early to ask as well, but (I know you can't reveal any exact numbers just yet) any intentions to make DLC for not just maps for MP and guerilla, but weapons or missions as well?
"This game is totally the right type of wrong for me though! LOL" said about OPF:RR.
Don't dum down tactical shooters for a slice of COD pie! YUMM! COD PIE!
I don't understand why people are complaining, this isn't Ghost Recon. I loved the original Ghost Recon, and the Island Thunder and Desert Siege Expansions, but was Ghost Recon 2 anything like these? No. Was it still a good game? Yes. Was it still Ghost Recon? Yes. Then GRAW and GRAW 2 came out. Again completely changing the game and still being good games and still being Ghost Recon. With Future Soldier since its a new game, don't we want it to be different? Or do we really want it to go back to a FPS where one shot to the leg had you limping the rest of the round and a second shot ended your game?I think this is the next phase of Ghost Recon and it seems like a cool direction. While I love the original Ghost Recon and its sometimes brutal realism, I've liked the new Future Soldier so far. Shouldn't we be thankful that there's at least one developer out there that isn't afraid to completely change things up every other title to release a fresh game rather than just churn out another MW4, 5 or 6 with Black Ops and World War tangents that are just crappy copies of the MWs?With Ghost Recon you actually get a new game with each title that focus around the awesome themes you can't find anywhere else. In the end, I think Red Storm should release this new Ghost Recon as it is, and release the original Ghost Recon for those who want to revisit the past.
This is really for the designers of the game and to piggyback off of JetSpiderMan's post.
I feel for one the game has gotten better in terms of upgrades. Somethings however have made the game worse.
My first disappointment is the camera jumping up and down as you run. Who's smart idea was that. Just because its in Call of duty or Medal of Honor doesn't make it a good feature or make you enjoy it more. I personally get nauseous when the camera does that. I like GR because it doesn't do that. I know I'm playing a game. Some things don't need to be reflected in a video.
My second dislike is the change of the controls. We've been playing this game for five years. We're kinda used to the controls. I understand there are new things that have been added but changing what we're used to is a big step (I may just be speaking for me).
Last word to designers of the game is to take a look back at GRAW2 and check out the mechanics of the game. Not that what you haven't done isn't good. It's just not GR like we are used to. Take a look at the fact that people are still playing this game faithfully after 5 years. The game is still picking up new players due to the upcoming release. It may be too late to change these or any other changes to the upcoming game with two weeks to go. But with having played the beta. I am truly disappoint and will continue to play GRAW2.
