A new Splinter Cell announcement is all but guaranteed for E3 2018 at this point. How so? Well, around a month ago, Walmart Canada supposedly leaked a whole bunch of secret PlayStation 4 titles. The leak included the likes of RAGE 2 and Assassin's Creed Odyssey, both of which were officially announced not long after.
It also featured Just Cause 4, which had its existence all but confirmed just a few hours ago via another leak.
Thus far, the Walmart leak has proven 100 per cent accurate. As such, it's become safe to assume that its Splinter Cell PS4 listing is also bang on the money. Presumably, the only reason we haven't seen it yet is because Ubisoft is saving the announcement for its E3 press conference.
Are you ready for the return of Sam Fisher? Identify your targets in the comments section below.
Definitely happening. I'm very excited to see this, I thought Blacklist was really good on the PS3.
There was a leak that had this as one of MS's 'exclusives' a while back too and Ubisoft have had a 'decent' relationship of late with them. At most though I expect that MS would have the marketing deal but I wouldn't be surprised if it was a 'timed' deal too...
Splinter cell blacklist was amazing on the ps3.great steath gameplay .amazing graphics.word up son
Yeah I get the feeling it'll be a timed exclusive just like Conviction, just don't know what platform.
Oh hell yes. A new Splinter Cell is up there with Elder Scrolls VI and GTA VI as dream announcements, and was always far more likely than the other two.
Even though Conviction and Blacklist were very different to the original games, they were still excellent.
A stealth game being the only one managing to keep itself hidden from the public?
There's a joke in there somewhere.
It's been far too long for a Sam Fisher instalment. On hand @get2sammyb I'm glad for the delay as Ubisoft seems to have sorted out hiccups with the new generation systems, so we could be finally in for a real treat with this title!
Where's the pre-order button!
@get2sammyb I sooo want that game playable on PS4! Ever since it was announced I wanted to play it...
Anyway, new Splinter Cell...it's happening yeah!
I want this on the switch to bad it be M rated and I can not play them
to be honest it's been a while since the last one so i would love some kind of collection of the older games too, including the one PS never got, unless all the games are on the XB1 BC program?
oh and get Michael Ironside back to do the voice and IF the was a HD collection to replace Eric Johnson in Blacklist, nothing against him as his voice was fine but he was no Sam Fisher
of course that is if it's set in the same series as the old games, it could be a reboot or a tie in to the upcoming Splinter Cell film
PS3 was an excellent game! I'm really excited to see splinter cell returning
I couldn't stand Blacklist. I loved Conviction, but it was downhill from there...
Hopefully Splinter Cell returns to form with something in the vain of Chaos Theory or Double Agent.
If this also means the return of Michael Ironside like in Wildlands then I'm sold 100%. If only Konami would do the same with a certain character voiced by David Hayter...
I'm super game for a Splinter Cell comeback! It's been a while since the last title, and I'd love to see those night vision goggles at E3.
@Broosh I agree that David Hayter was the best and, in my mind, only voice for Snake, but Kojima always does things for a good logical reason, and there is definitely a good reason why Snake is voiced by Kiefer Sutherland in MGS5.
Perfect time for Splinter Cell to make a comeback. now that Metal Gear is all but dead imo...
Awesome can't wait, delighted when conviction was made backwards compatible, hope they do the same with blacklist, keep me going til the new one
Big fan of both Conviction and Blacklist. Can't wait to see this series return. I love Assassin's Creed but SC is my favorite Ubisoft franchise.
@Broosh to be fair the new voice would make sense for the story if it wasn't for Ground Zeroes
I hope he's a better agent than he was in his Ghost Recon: Wildlands mission. He was bloody useless!
@Totaldude911 @FullbringIchigo I'm not up in arms about the new voice for snake, they had their reasons. Imagine if they tie it into a full Metal Gear remake game! Solid snake could be Hayter with Boss as Sutherland.
@Broosh thing is with what happened in the story a different voice actually worked as Big Boss but it would have been and worked better if Hayter was in Ground Zeroes
@FullbringIchigo I agree with that, and I bet they considered that. But I think that would have spoiled the surprise, making it too obvious.
