Hot on the heels of his Assasin's Creed Valhalla DLC claims, online tipster Tom Henderson has potentially shared a look behind the curtain of another Ubisoft title: the currently unannounced Splinter Cell game. Instead of shoehorning protagonist Sam Fisher into every other one of its IPs, Ubisoft is reportedly reviving the stealth series. And according to Henderson, the new entry will be open world in the same way that Halo Infinite is.
While we haven't had the chance to go hands on with the latest Master Chief campaign just yet — hurry up 6pm GMT — we understand there is a large open area to explore with sectioned off campaign missions alongside it. Henderson reckons this new Splinter Cell title will have a similar structure, stating it'll be "a more stealthy version of Assassin's Creed". The project is in early development, though, so don't expect to see it any time soon.
So, should we believe these claims made by Tom Henderson? The insider has proven to have a fairly decent track record when it comes to leaks of this kind, with his statements surrounding Grand Theft Auto 6 backed up by Bloomberg's Jason Schreier. It certainly sounds like Henderson knows a thing or two, so maybe Ubisoft really is planning on an open world Splinter Cell title.
