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.

“I think franchise is active, successful world-building, and video games obviously have a world-building aspect to them, but so do books and so do graphic novels and so do comic books and so does original IP. And really, this is a matter of how well it’s executed. If you do it well, people want to come back for more and you don’t disappoint them. You can keep doing it. So we’re really thrilled about it and thrilled about doing it from a variety of sources.”
