Sorry Ubisoft isnt working on another Splinter Cell game

first_imgFans have been begging for a new entry in Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell franchise since the well-received Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Ubisoft has steered clear of it so far, until a new tweet from The Division 2’s creative director Julian Gerighty which suggests he’s working on a new iteration in the series.Except, Ubisoft has said it was a joke post and there’s almost definitely not a Splinter Cell game coming at E3.Related: Best PC GamesI know, I’m sad about it too.

They’re fair to be upset. Splinter Cell: Blacklist was a quality game filled with strong ideas, after which the franchise just vanished into the darkness. The series multiplayer Mercs versus Spies mode was a clear inspiration on what became the asymmetrical shooter Of course, this could be Ubisoft’s subtle way of canvassing interest for a new Splinter Cell game, I eagerly hope they see the excitement from the tweet and get to work. Best case scenario, it’s all an elaborate double bluff, and we’ll actually see Fisher’s trademark goggles as he runs off on another terrorist-choking adventure.A man can dream, right?last_img read more
