Splinter Cell Returns... as a Netflix Animated Series

Splinter Cell Returns... as a Netflix Animated Series

So it hasn't really returned, sorry.

A lot of video games are being turned into animes as of late. The “why” is a bit of a mystery, although I’d wager it has a lot to do with the meteoric rise of gaming as a mainstream hobby, increased “leisure time” on account of the global pandemic, and the proven success of Castlevania, the first series to really take the plunge.

We’ve already talked about how odd (yet exciting) it is to see Dragon’s Dogma, Capcom’s dangerously underappreciated fantasy RPG, getting turned into a Netflix anime. But now a more conventional series has joined its ranks, as it was just announced Ubisoft is turning Splinter Cell into a Netflix animated series as well.

We don’t know much about it yet. We know it’ll be penned by Jon Wick co-creator Derek Kolstad, who’ll also be the executive producer. He’s on something of a gaming hot streak, since he’s also creating the My Friend Pedro and Hitman series, which might also explain why there’s not really a release date planned for this bad boy. But we do know it’s scheduled to have 16 episodes for two seasons.

It’s not exactly the new Splinter Cell game that fans have been clamoring for, but it’s better than nothing. Maybe.
