Netflix is teaming up with Ubisoft to produce an animated adaption of the Splinter Cell series. According to Variety, the streaming service has ordered two seasons of the show for a total of 16 episodes.
Variety claims that John Wick writer Derek Kolstad is set to oversee the project. However, details about the show including its story are still under wraps. Of course, expect the show to follow the story of Navy SEAL Sam Fisher as he undertakes missions for the NSA.
To be frank, Ubisoft is toying with fan emotions right now. The developer has announced multiple Splinter Cell projects including a mobile game and in-game character cameos for Rainbow Six Siege and others. However, the only thing fans want is a new fully-fledged Splinter Cell video game. The publisher clearly has other agendas right now.
Netflix, on the other hand, is ready to produce anything under the sun. The streaming company is currently working on multiple video game adaption shows and movies. This includes The Witcher, Castlevania, Cuphead, Pokemon and more. Netflix co-CEOs Reed Hastings and Ted Sarandos said during an earnings call that the provider is looking at multiple avenues for new stories to adapt.
