Ubisoft has updated Splinter Cell amid rumours about introducing a new title. It is said that it would be an open world and include elements of the Hitman series.
The return of Splinter Cell? It seems that it would be getting closer and closer. The rumours have not stopped crowding, and already last October, rumours said that Ubisoft had given the green light to a new installment. Precisely today, we learned that the French firm presented the updated trademark last week, slightly changing its description. It is said that this new title would offer an open world and include elements of Hitman.
Sources close to the game’s production reported that Ubisoft is currently working on a new Splinter Cell, a saga that will also receive an anime series for Netflix. It seems that the French firm wants to shape this game as an attempt to win back fans who were not convinced by the leap from the saga to mobile or virtual reality. The company has not done very well with its recent announcements: let’s remember that Tom Clancy’s XDefiant, without going any further, met with the players’ refusal.
We find that last week they updated the Splinter Cell trademark with some changes: they have removed from the description “interactive multiplayer computer games” and now point out that the saga “provides an online computer game.” The change is minimal but could suggest that Ubisoft is forging something with the series. At the moment, this is the only move the company has made in this regard.
Sources, for their part, assure that Splinter Cell is in its initial production phase and that there is a possibility that it will be announced next year. We still have to wait for Ubisoft to find the right moment to present the project. Meanwhile, the company continues with opposition from players: users have also rejected its Ubisoft Quartz, an NFT skin system.
