Sam Fisher’s return has seen multiple teases and hints this year alone, with a Ubisoft director teasing that they are working on the next Splinter Cell game, Sam Fisher’s voice actor doing the same and there was even a hint in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. That’s why I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that the game might get revealed at E3 2019, which of course, we know now it didn’t.

That doesn’t mean that Ubisoft isn’t working on the next Splinter Cell game. In fact, it looks like they definitely are working on the title and that the publisher plans to make a big comeback with the franchise. This will include “new experiments” but if you ask me, the game is still a very, very long way off.
This news comes from Ubisoft’s CEO, Yves Guillemot, who said in a video interview with Chinese publication GamerJoy (as reported by WCCFTech) that:
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#33ffe6″ class=”” size=”22″]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.[/perfectpullquote]
The words “different devices” just scream next-gen for me. As you know, the PS5 and the next Xbox will support ray tracing and one can just imagine the next Splinter Cell taking advantage of the amazing lightning this type of tech can provide. It is also possible that Ubisoft is experimenting with VR compatibility for the game so players can finally jump into the boots of Sam Fisher for real.
At the time of writing, there is no indication when the next Splinter Cell will release or even when it will be revealed.
