After shoehorning protagonist Sam Fisher and his iconic night vision goggles into, well, everything, Ubisoft has allegedly given the go-ahead to the first mainline Splinter Cell game in almost a decade. According to “development sources” reported by VGC, the release is in t
Who asked for this?
Update: Video Games Chronicle has now updated its story, stating: "We were told the project is currently in the early stages of development and will not feature at the Ubisoft Forward event set to take place later this week." This very much sounds like a project for the future then. Original story: It looks like Ubisoft will...
We've been covering Splinter Cell revival rumours for years here on Push Square, and yet we're still waiting for the return of Sam Fisher on PlayStation platforms. The stealthy old man's appeared in games like Ghost Recon: Wildlands from time to time, but other than that, it feels like Ubisoft's got him locked up tight. As it turns out,...
We've been waiting an eternity for another entry in the Splinter Cell franchise. Indeed, it feels as though we're on the cusp of a new game; Ubisoft has hinted at the return of Sam Fisher, and there have been some hints here and there. It makes sense to bring it back, and it turns out the publisher is doing just that -- only, not in the...
A hint of things to come?
The idea of a modern Splinter Cell game has been flying around for what feels like an eternity. The series has been MIA since Blacklist on PlayStation 3, and that released nearly seven years ago. Aside from a surprising cameo appearance in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Sam Fisher has been out of action for the whole PS4...
That's one off our wish list
We all want it, don't we? A new Splinter Cell game has been at the top of our wish lists for quite some time now, but if Jason Schreier of Kotaku is to be believed, we're going to have to wait a whole lot longer before it becomes a reality. As part of a recent Kotaku Splitscreen podcast, Schreier stated the following:...
Nothing to announce
A creative director at Ubisoft has prompted the publisher to release a public statement shooting down hopes of a new Splinter Cell, after he caused the Internet to explode by drunkenly Tweeting that he's working on a new instalment in the popular stealth property. At the Ubi Summit, an intoxicated Julian Gerightly told his...
"But I can't say more than that"
A new Splinter Cell game has been heavily rumoured for some time now, to the point where people were left wondering what happened when it didn't show up during Ubisoft's E3 2018 presentation. The conversation surrounding the franchise has been a little muddy for a while, but thankfully, t
There comes a point in a popular franchise’s life where fans want it to make a comeback, and pretty much everyone is pulling for Splinter Cell right now – especially in the wake of Metal Gear Solid’s expected absence. Jade Raymond, who most recently worked for EA but is perhaps best known for her time at Ubisoft, has revealed...
Missing in action
After the Walmart Canada leak, we thought it was a sure thing, but there was no sign of Splinter Cell at Ubisoft’s E3 2018 press conference tonight. It means either the game’s not happening, or it will put in an appearance at Sony’s briefing later on – but we’ve alrea
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 fe
"Then it's only me..."
Oh no, this one hit us hard. Back when the PS2 vs Xbox console war was at its height, Splinter Cell's Sam Fisher was always pitted as Microsoft's answer to Solid Snake – before the stealth classics made their way over to the PlayStation 2 of course. With the demise of the Metal Gear Solid franchise following the...
Tech and games blog TheNerdMag has spotted a listing on Amazon Canada for an unannounced Splinter Cell game. Merely a placeholder page for the time being, the page is almost empty, but that hasn't stopped people from speculating about a potential E3 2018 reveal. [/
