A New Splinter Cell "Project" is in the Works

Probably for mobile.

Ubisoft has quite a few Tom Clancy games live at the moment: there’s Rainbow Six Siege, of course, as well as The Division, and of course the latest Ghost Recon games… it seems that we’re in the middle of something like a “Tom Clancy Renaissances.” Which is why it’s so confusing that in an age where Ubisoft can’t help but make Tom Clancy stuff, his arguably most famous series in the video game world, Splinter Cell, remains MIA.

Technically that’s an issue that’s been brought up by Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemont in the past, who traditionally claimed that the issue with a new Splinter Cell game was that the pressure for it to be “good” was too much. But while recently speaking with Chinese news outlet GamerSky, he made a slightly different, almost reassuring claim: they are, in fact, working on a new Splinter Cell “project”. But it might be different from what you’re expecting.

"There will be some new types of experiments… but on more different devices. We are working a little bit on the brand today to come back at one point. We can’t say when, because, as you know, it takes time. But each time we have to find the right experience to come back big."


That probably means the real reason they’ve hesitated to talk about the new Splinter Cell game was because it’s a mobile project, not unlike that Elite Squad business they were showing off at E3 this year. Considering how fans reacted to the mobile Diablo, it’s probably not unfair for Ubisoft to be slightly anxious about making the announcement, but then people have more-or-less been on board with them when it came to the mobile Assassin’s Creed games, and there was no big outcry about the aforementioned Elite Squad, so maybe they’re being overly cautious.

Or maybe I’m completely wrong.
