Splinter Cell Remake Could “Rewrite” The Story Of The Game?!

Although Ubisoft remains silent on developing a Splinter Cell remake, new details confirm that the original story will be modernised.

 

 

Ubisoft has confirmed that it is working on a remake of the classic stealth series Splinter Cell, but new information suggests that the story won’t be quite as fans remember it. The new game is expected to be a remake of the 2002 title and will be developed by Ubisoft Toronto, which also handled the franchise’s last game, Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

So far, Ubisoft hasn’t revealed many new details about the game, which is likely still in the early stages of development.

The initial announcement confirmed that Splinter Cell would use The Division’s Snowdrop engine from the ground up, which is also being utilised for other upcoming titles such as Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and the unannounced Star Wars project. However, a new job posting has shed a little more light on the game, including an updated story.

The job posting on the Ubisoft Careers website for a screenwriter makes it clear that Ubisoft Toronto is rewriting and updating the original Splinter Cell story for modern audiences. The description reveals that the studio’s goal is to preserve the spirit and themes of the original game while exploring the characters and world in more detail to make them feel more authentic and believable.

The original Splinter Cell introduced players to Sam Fisher, an NSA agent who becomes a vital member of the newly formed stealth division, Third Eschelon.

The series, voiced by Michael Ironside for most of Fisher’s appearances, quickly earned its place as one of Ubisoft’s flagship franchises in the early 2000s, releasing several games every few years until 2013, when Blacklist was released as the final mainline game. While Fisher has appeared as a guest star in other Tom Clancy games, much of the fanbase has wondered when the series would return in full.

While fans continue to await new information and speculate if this is the first step towards the franchise’s return, it’s not the only remake Ubisoft is working on. In fact, another of Ubisoft’s flagship remakes is Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, another franchise that was pretty dormant before this latest reveal.
