After many years of waiting, Ubisoft has officially confirmed a new Splinter Cell game is in development, but not in the way you might think. Instead of a brand new title, Ubisoft is instead remaking the original Splinter Cell game, but promises more to come in the series after at least.

Ubisoft officially confirmed they are developing a Splinter Cell Remake, with an emphasis on staying true to the original game whilst also updating it with modern features/controls. That means no, it won’t be an open world. At least not this time: “With this remake, we are building a solid base for the future of Splinter Cell,” said Chris Auty, Creative Director.

So, as we’re building it from the ground up, we’re going to update it visually, as well as some of the design elements to match player comfort and expectations,” said Matt West, Producer, “and we are going to keep it linear like the original games, not make it open world.

That means an open world version of Splinter Cell could still come at some point, it’s likely Ubisoft is simply testing the waters here, checking to see if the SC franchise is still a seller. If all goes well, we could finally see a brand new Splinter Cell game in the future, or maybe another remake of Chaos Theory.

No release date has been revealed yet unfortunately, nor do we have any gameplay or initial trailers as the project has only just been greenlit by Ubisoft. Considering next year will be the original Splinter Cell’s 20th anniversary in November, we might not hear anything more about the remake until then.

What do you think? Are you excited for a Splinter Cell Remake? Do you think this could lead onto a brand new SC game? What changes/updates would you like to see in the remake? And what do you hope they don’t get rid of? Let us know your thoughts!

Are you excited for a Splinter Cell remake?

I'd be very interested but I remembered it's developed by Ubisoft. That means it's probably an open world game where you'll spend 80% of the playtime dealing with outposts.

don't get your hopes up too soon, don't forget that this is ubi!^%# after all, and lately out of all their game titles that they possess right now, the best game they came up with was the bike driving of the mountain game which is just pitiful, not to mention all their strongest ruined titles, like AC, nore more parkour, stealth and everything else that makes it AC and other titles, like R6, The Crew, Ghost recon, and FC

Ubisoft will screw this up as well with an open-world and NFT nonsense because they just can't help themselves. They are Ubisoft.
