Splinter Cell Remake In The Works At Far Cry 6 Studio (VIDEO)
Fans have been waiting for the Splinter Cell franchise to make a return for what feels like an eternity. The main protagonist of the series, Sam Fisher has appeared in a variety of titles such as Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Breakpoint, and Rainbow Six Siege, but the character hasn’t seen his own title since Splinter Cell Blacklist back in 2013. While a new Splinter Cell has been teased at various points over the years, there hasn’t been anything concrete concerning what the future holds for the franchise. A recent announcement however my signal a return to form for Sam Fisher and the Splinter Cell franchise.
Ubisoft recently released a post announcing a Splinter Cell remake is currently in the works, greenlit by Far Cry 6 studio Ubisoft Toronto. The title is said to be “rebuilt from the ground up” and will make use of the Snowdrop engine adopted by the upcoming Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. According to Producer Matt West, the team isn’t looking to simply update the visuals of the original and will instead pursue a remake for the upcoming project, hoping to “redefine stealth action” as the original Splinter Cell title did when it was released all those years ago.
Short of explaining the guiding force behind the upcoming Splinter Cell remake, the developers didn’t mention what exactly fans could expect from the project. Though, they did confirm that an open world is not something that they plan on bringing into the title. As Creative Director Chris Auty described, the team is aiming to “respect the goggles” by holding true to the rich foundation of the franchise while bringing a modern take on the classic gameplay of the series.
There was no mention of a release date for this upcoming Splinter Cell remake, let alone what platforms the game will be playable on, but the developers did mention that this will be a sort of jumping-off point for the future of the Splinter Cell franchise. Hopefully, a successful remake will mean a bright future for the stealth action series and the genre as a whole.
