THE BUZZ: Ubisoft Toronto has teased a few details about its soon to be announced new Splinter Cell title.

The new title is rumored to be called Splinter Cell: Retribution, and according to Studio Head Jade Raymond the game will explore one of the franchise’s overlooked “root themes.”

“It will have all of the action flick elements for sure, but we’re trying to also explore something a little bit more interesting that is actually one of the themes that’s at the root of the franchise historically, but never has been surfaced so much,” Raymond told CVG. “I can’t really say more on this!”

EGM’s TAKE: Splinter Cell really needs to get back to the stealth side of the game. Nine times out of ten in Conviction the stealth quickly dissolved into a run and gun bullet fest, and was actually the best way to get the job done. In the originals the one thing you never wanted was a firefight as it usually resulted in death. Hopefully this new title will return to the franchise’s roots.
