Splinter Cell finally makes a comeback; but with a catch
Unlike many other developers, Ubisoft has done a commendable job of keeping most of its popular franchises alive. It even gave the long-dead Prince of Persia series a fresh coat of paint. Splinter Cell, another seemingly discontinued Ubisoft franchise, is all set to make a comeback, but there's a huge caveat.
While a new Splinter Cell game has been officially confirmed, it will be on Oculus VR only. There's a new Assassins Creed VR game that will be released along with it, too. A PC release seems somewhat imminent, considering that most VR titles need accompanying hardware. The chances of a console release seem slim, but that could change later.
Everything else about the games, including their release date, is shrouded in mystery. Will the Splinter Cell game spearheaded by the aging Sam Fisher, or does Ubisoft have something else in store? While the announcement may come as a breath of fresh air for Splinter Cell fans, its VR-only release may put many people off. One can only hope that Ubisoft releases one, if not both, games on PC and console eventually.
