A couple months ago, it was reported that Ubisoft had finally greenlit a Splinter Cell series revival. The project was apparently in very early production, and so was never officially confirmed nor were there any details. But now a new rumor suggests that it could be going open world, with comparisons to Assassins Creed.
Reliable leaker Tom Henderson (who accurately leaked plenty of details for Battlefield 2042 before launch) claims that the next Splinter Cell game will be open world, “similar to how Halo Infinite has done its Open World.” Additionally, comparisons have apparently been made to other Ubisoft titles, like “a more stealthy version of Assassin's Creed,” whatever that might mean...
Obviously, take this information with a grain of salt, but Henderson has proven to be a very reliable leaker recently. Plus, considering how much anticipation will be around a new Splinter Cell game, we wanted to know your thoughts on what the next entry should or shouldn’t look like, including whether an open world setting would work.
The last official Splinter Cell game we got was in 2013 with Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Considering the new game is reportedly very early in development, it’s unlikely we’ll hear anything official until 2022 at the earliest. It’s also possible for design decisions to change during development, so who knows what the final product will end up looking like.
What do you think? Are you excited for a new Splinter Cell game? How would you feel about it being open world? And how do you feel about it potentially being a more stealthy Assassins Creed? Let us know!
