New Ghost Recon Wildlands Update Teases Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher (VIDEO)
Year 2 of Ghost Recon Wildlands’ post-launch content is underway, with Ubisoft having already laid out the first of their upcoming DLC titled “Special Operations 1“. While the pack’s much-requested feature of team customization is definitely worth looking forward to, the new Ghost Recon Wildlands update looks to be teasing fans with an even more exciting addition in the form of Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher.
The tease in question arrives in a new video from Ubisoft, heavily hinting at the Tom Clancy crossover to come. From the footage, we see what looks to be the protagonist of the Splinter Cell series Sam Fisher gearing up for a trip to the Bolivian wildlands. Nothing is exactly confirmed, but the voice of longtime Fisher actor Michael Ironside and the visual of the character’s iconic night-vision goggles is unmistakable. Check it out below:
The teaser ends by highlighting the date of April 9th for further details about the DLC, one day before the full update goes live. As early as last year, Ubisoft had been expressing a potential Splinter Cell revival, mentioning “different things” in the works for Sam Fisher’s future. One of these projects seemed to have been revealed last month in a leaked store listing, but it seems we’ll be getting his apparent return in a Ghost Recon Wildlands update before that happens. Ghost Recon Wildlands is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
What do you think? Are you happy to have a Splinter Cell crossover with Wildlands, or should they have given the stealth franchise a new entry first? How awesome is it to see Michael Ironside back as Sam Fisher?
