Ubisoft seems to have kicked off development for a Splinter Cell game we actually want for a change. According to a rumour, a new open-world Splinter Cell game is now in development across various Ubisoft studios around the world.
The leak comes from reliable source Tom Henderson who says Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell game is currently “scoped” as an open-world of sorts.
Henderson goes on to reveal that players can expect a more stealthy version of Assassin’s Creed sort of game. He compares the new game direction as similar to Halo Infinite and its open-world design.
By the sound of things, the game is still in very early development. If anything, it could still be in the pre-production phase too. So don’t expect to see an announcement any time soon.
Ubisoft has come under fire this year for abusing the Tom Clancy’s gaming series with titles no one wanted to play. We got a new free-to-play The Division: Heartland game reveal, that free-to-play XDefiant shooter and another free-to-play “not battle royale but totally a battle royale “ game Frontlines.
Beyond those games, Ubisoft has also used the Splinter Cell universe in other games with Sam Fisher cameos across Rainbow Six Siege, Far Cry and more. Players have been craving a new Splinter Cell game for years now.
Sure, the open-world approach might be a step away from the traditional recipe we are used to from the series but hey, it is a Splinter Cell game nonetheless.
Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell game that is in early development is currently scoped as a… You guessed it… Open World of sorts.
