E3 2017: “We are not forgetting Splinter Cell.” says Ubisoft CEO

Gone, but not forgotten.

It’s been nearly 4 years since the release of Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and for those still eagerly awaiting a new Splinter Cell game, fear not, whilst not much else is known about a new Splinter Cell game, other than Ubisoft reportedly filing a new trademark – this obviously being done so no one else can steal the name and NOT pointing towards the whole series being rebooted (though considering the flop that was Blacklist, it is a possibility) – it still points to the fact that Splinter Cell has not been completely forgotten about.

During the YouTube Live at E3 livestream, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot was asked about whether fans could expect to see a Splinter Cell game in the near future, to which Guillemot replied “I can’t say much about that. But, for sure, all the Clancy games are taken care of. It’s just we have quite a lot on our plate at the moment.”

He points towards the fact that both The Division and Rainbow Six Siege still have an active player base, and the success of Ghost Recon: Wildlands, stating that “all Clancy games are coming along, so we are not forgetting Splinter Cell.”

So whilst it doesn’t seem like there is a Splinter Cell ready for release any time soon, perhaps Ubisoft do have something in the very early works, and a couple of years down the line something will finally be revealed. Fingers crossed!
