Ubisoft’s CEO has confirmed that no Splinter Cell game is currently in the works, but that may not be the case for long.
During the recent E3 2017, Ubisoft held an internal interview with CEO Yves Guillemot to discuss the publisher’s upcoming plans. Guillemot spent much of the interview discussing Ubisoft’s lineup at the show, but just after the three minute mark, the interviewer asked the CEO what might be in store for the Splinter Cell series.
“We are receiving lots of sketches and proposals around the brand, and we’re going to pick one up.” Guillemot said. “I think you will be able to see something, but you will have to wait for that.”
The interviewer’s question referenced a Reddit AMA Guillemot took part in during the show, in which he teased that something could be on the horizon for the series.
“Splinter Cell is a brand we talk about a lot. It’s also personally one of my favorite series. We don’t have anything specific to share at the moment but teams are working on different things, so stay tuned for more.”
Based these quotes, it sounds like Ubisoft is planning to take another crack at the Splinter Cell series, but it will likely be a while before fans see anything come to fruition. For the time being, Ubisoft fans will have to tide themselves over with the publisher’s other newly revealed titles like Far Cry 5, Skull & Bones, Mario + Rabbids, and Assassin’s Creed Origins.
