According to a report from Ubisoft, Ubisoft is working on a new Splinter Cell game Tom Henderson at VGC. The game is said to be in the “early stages of production” and there is a “small chance” that it will be announced in 2022.
The report gave no insight into which studios are working on the new Splinter Cell game. However, sources said the game could be developed by a studio outside of Montreal.
According to the report, Ubisoft is partially giving the game the go-ahead to “win back” fans who have not accepted Splinter Cell’s mobile and VR spin-offs.
If it’s real, this would be the first new Splinter Cell game since 2013 Splinter Cell: Blacklist developed by Ubisoft Toronto and published on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC. The report gave no indication of what type of game the new Splinter Cell might be, although it was described as a “mainline” entry as opposed to some kind of spin-off.
Ubisoft declined to comment when approached by VGC. GameSpot has also contacted the publisher and we will be in touch with new information as it becomes available.
The original Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell was released in 2002. So if the new game is real and announced next year, this would be a fitting way to celebrate the franchise’s 20th anniversary.
In 2020, Ubisoft announced the revival of the Splinter Cell franchise as a VR game for Oculus Quest 2, but that wasn’t what some core fans might have wanted. A Splinter Cell anime by Netflix is also in the works and was written by John Wick creator Derek Kolstad. A Splinter Cell live-action film starring Tom Hardy is also on the way, but it appears to be in developing hell.
