Splinter Cell “Comeback” Promised By Ubisoft CEO
The long running Splinter Cell franchise has been on hiatus for quite some time now, with Ubisoft recently confirming that one of the reasons why we haven’t seen a new entry in the series has been due to a lack of desire to work on the series from within the studio, with team members preferring to work on more successful titles instead. It looks like this is beginning to no longer be the case, however, as Ubisoft is now promising that the Splinter Cell series will be making a “comeback” in the near future.
In a recent interview with Chinese language publication Gamersky, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot revealed that Splinter Cell is being worked on behind closed doors, and that the company is developing “new type of experiences, but more on different devices” to what would normally be expected from the series. The first thing that comes to mind here is mobile games, though that assumption is still a bit preemptive at this time. Guillemot also admitted that the company is “working a lot on the brand today to come back at one point,” though he is currently unable to provide a solid time frame.
Despite the back and forth, this is still fairly exciting news for Splinter Cell fans. We’ve had almost no new news from the franchise for quite some time now, and it is heartening to hear that at the very least, Ubisoft is working on something. Here’s hoping it won’t just be another throwaway mobile game.
So, thoughts on the possibility of Splinter Cell’s big comeback? Looking forward to playing as Sam Fisher once again?
