Ubisoft reportedly has an unannounced Splinter Cell game in the early stages of development, and it will have an open world.
According to journalist Tom Henderson on Twitter, this Splinter Cell title “is currently scoped as a… You guessed it… Open World of sorts.”
It’s also rumored to be a stealthy version of Assassin’s Creed, and will be similar to Halo Infinite’s open world. This just means Splinter Cell may have free-roaming missions in the campaign, as well as an extensive map.
Ubisoft has yet to officially announce its even working on a new Splinter Cell game, other than its VR-exclusive title, but the rumors persist. In October, additional reports from Tom Henderson claimed the game was in the “early phase of production,” and that there is a “small chance” it will be unveiled in 2022.
Sources also said that the game may be developed by a studio outside of Montreal, even with Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist being developed primarily at Ubisoft Toronto. Intially it was reported the Ubisoft was greenlighting this unknown game in part to “win back” fans who didn’t quite enjoy the Splinter Cell mobile and VR spin-offs.
