Everyone expected Ubisoft to announce a new entry in the Splinter Cell series during its press conference, but sadly that did not happen.
Speaking later to Geoff Keighley during YouTube’s E3 show, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot revealed that the company loves the Splinter Cell series and really wants to come back to it, but he had nothing to say about a new game at the moment.
“So we love the brand first,” he said when asked about a new game. “We really want to come back with it at some point, but I can’t say much today.”
This doesn’t exactly confirm that a new game is on the way, but at least it shows that Ubisoft hasn’t forgotten about the series.
Fans started to get excited about a potential return of the series following a Splinter Cell crossover event for Ghost Recon Wildlands that saw Michael Ironside return to his role as Sam Fisher. This was followed by a Walmart Canada leak that leaked a number of unannounced games, one of which was a new Splinter Cell.
