Ubisoft could unveil a new Splinter Cell game sometime in 2022
It's been a while since we've heard anything about Splinter Cell since Blacklist dropped in 2013. Ubisoft announced that a VR version of the game was in development last year (2020), but that seems to be lost in the ether. Now, fresh rumours about a new Splinter Cell game, presumably a Blacklist sequel, have emerged online.
Sources familiar with the matter have told VGC that Ubisoft is working on a new Splinter Cell title, although it isn't certain which studio will be developing it. A few testers who played the game told Venturebeat that it hasn't progressed beyond the tutorial level, so it could be a while before we see it in action. We're probably looking at a 2022 reveal and a 2023-24 launch if things go smoothly.
Although Splinter Cell games are a tad formulaic and repetitive, they've been well received by fans and enthusiasts alike. One can only hope that the upcoming sequel is worth the near ten-year wait. Expectation will undoubtedly be sky-high, and the last thing anyone wants to see is the generic open-world setting that has plagued recent Ubisoft releases.
