Ever since the latest game in the series back in 2013, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Ubisoft seemed to have forgotten one of their most popular franchises. However, the latest appearance of the fan beloved agent Sam Fisher was featured in Ghost Recon Wildlands DLC. And in recent months, a couple of jokes and teases from Ubisoft sparked a new wave of rumors about the new Splinter Cell game, but nothing was revealed officially. Well, until now.
In an interview with one Chinese media outlet Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemont, revealed that Ubisoft is currently working on a new Splinter Cell game. However, fans shouldn’t expect it to arrive anytime soon. Yves Guillemont stated:
“On Splinter Cell, there will be some new type of experiments, but more on different devices. We are working a lot on the brand today to come back at one point. We can’t say when because as you know it takes time, but we have to find which time is right to come back big.”
It’s not the first time Ubisoft mentions Splinter Cell in the last couple of months. Prior E3 2019, the studio teased Sam Fisher’s return via Tweets which later was clarified as jokes to manage fans expectations before the show. Later, Ubisoft mentioned the franchize talking about their new game for VR. All jokes aside, it’s about time to stop playing with our feelings and finally give us something real or keep quiet until the official reveal. We don’t know how much teases and jokes we can handle…
