Ubisoft Intended to Remake The Splinter Cell Game
Ubisoft has just announced some surprising news about one of its most popular IP (Intellectual Property) game titles in 2002, namely Splinter Cell.
The plan, this stealth shooter genre game will be launched with the same title. The developer will also maintain the figure of Sam Fisher as the main character of the remake series.
Quoting from Polygon, Splinter Cell will be remade using the Ubisoft Snowdrop graphics engine which was introduced in the game Tom Clancy’s The Division.
Technical producer Peter Handrinos admits the Splinter Cell series has gone through all the generations of new game consoles on the market to date.
As for Splinter Cell: Blacklist, which launched in 2013 was the final installment. And there were never any plans to “revive” the IP despite the demands of the series’ loyal fans.
“We will spend time exploring many things, such as light and shadow, animation technology, gameplay, AI, to audio,” said Handrinos.
“We wanted to bring something new, but still connect them with the feeling they had two decades ago, playing that masterpiece for the first time.”
Unfortunately, Ubisoft Toronto still hasn’t revealed the release date of this Splinter Cell remake. Launching first on the GameCube, PlayStation 2, Windows PC, and Xbox, the game will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2022.
