Following the recent release of the Operation Oracle update, Ubisoft teased about its tactical shooter game, "Ghost Recon Wildlands." The latest story involved the fictional company SkellCon, which made huge gaming headlines recently. Ubisoft has launched the official Skell Technology website to promote the upcoming Skellcon event, which will take place next week, May 9.

According to reports, typing the URL skell.ubisoft.com into the web browser will bring "Ghost Recon" fans to a page that says “Join us for SkellCon.” The newly released website also includes the date and exact time of the much-awaited event, which will take place on May 9, 2019, at exactly 11.30 am Pacific Time.

In the Skell Technology website, the 'About Us' page also brings to a newly released video that highlighted all the great things that the fictional company has made.

New tease might suggest a whole new game

Many gaming publishers introduce their new lineups or upcoming new games with some teasers. Ubisoft did this when they teased "Assassin’s Creed Odyssey" and "The Division 2" last year. And this week, they seem like they could be doing it right again, but on a much larger scale.

In fact, Ubisoft has launched a new Skell Technology website to tease an impending "Ghost Recon" announcement.

So, what does this new Ubisoft’s tease mean? Many believe this latest tease may be pointing to a new Tom Clancy or Splinter Cell game. But there are also some recent hints that Ubisoft may be working on a new "Rainbow Six, Siege" game, according to IGN. A new "Ghost Recon" game is certainly possible, as Ubisoft continues its strong commitment to the tactical shooter game via the regular release of new updates.

In fact, just last week, the company released a new DLC update involving a character played by The Punisher’s star Jon Bernthal. The newly updates Operation Oracle focuses on a character named Cole Walker and a new rescue mission. This free update has been released for PC, PS4 and Xbox One players.

Unfortunately, there’s not much information about the upcoming May 9 announcement and the new Skell Technology website. Information is scarce as Ubisoft decides to remain tight-lipped about this story.

But many "Ghost Recon" fans are hoping for something related to a new "Ghost Recon Wildlands" game, according to a recent Reddit conversation.

This is not the first time Ubisoft made a tease for its "Ghost Recon Wildlands" The company already announced something in a similar manner involving the same fictional company Skell Technology, which is known for developing technology for both military and civilian use. That previous tease featured an Easter egg that directed players to a website for the fictional company Skell Technology.

Players have been granted access to the website, which provides an overview of some robots, drones and other high-tech products the fictional company produced.

Ubisoft enters a new partnership

In another "Ghost Recon"-related story, Ubisoft announced a partnership with digital distribution firm, Genba Digital. The latest partnership involves selling PC games through third-party online stores. Ubisoft and their partner Genba have been reportedly working on a new 'silent key activation' process that activates games on gaming platforms like Steam automatically rather than providing gaming codes to online video game retailers or customers.

Starting now, Ubisoft will only sell games through websites or online retailers that use the newly announced 'silent key activation' process.
