Ubisoft Spain’s new tweet hints at the possibility of seeing another Splinter Cell game after all these years.
Ubisoft has a ton of amazing IPs but in the current generation of consoles it seems that they mostly care about Assassin’s Creed, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon and Tom Clancy’s The Division, therefore, their other beloved franchises such as Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia don’t get the spotlight as much as they used to. However, Splinter Cell has a strange scenario and despite the fact that many players are hoping for an AAA Splinter Cell game, Ubisoft just simply tease fans with random posts. Recently, it was Ubisoft Spain (Ubisoft España) that shared a Splinter Cell related post on its official tweeter account.

The tweet roughly translates to, “You need to understand the darkness in order to face it,” which if you’ve ever played any Splinter Cell, this type of dialogue sounds really familiar.
Keep in mind that this tweet has not been shared by other Ubisoft accounts like Ubisoft North America, Ubisoft Russia, Ubisoft Italy, Ubisoft Germany, and of course Ubisoft France. In addition to that, the French company didn’t have any Splinter Cell related activity as of late and even their official YouTube channel didn’t include anything slightly related to the beloved third person stealth franchise.
It’s worth mentioning that Ubisoft Spain’s new tweet wasn’t the only time that Ubisoft teased Splinter Cell fans and in one of the most recent instances Julian Gerighty as a creative director in Ubisoft said that he was working on a new Splinter Cell, but not long after this announcement, Ubisoft came in and officially revealed that the whole scenario was just a joke.
Stealth action fans haven’t got the chance to play any Splinter Cell game in this generation and the last time we saw the legendary Sam Fisher was all the way back in 2013’s Splinter Cell Blacklist so it isn’t that much surprising to see this huge anticipation for playing the next chapter of Sam Fisher’s journey.
Considering the fact that Splinter Cell is one of the most well-known franchises in the video game industry, another title in the series is inevitable but the main question is how and when does Ubisoft want to explore the Splinter Cell franchise more?
As you may already know Ubisoft’s latest game, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint wasn’t successful in terms of both financially and critically, and while The Division 2 managed to receive positive reviews, the game fell short of Ubisoft’s expectations, as a result they have decided to delay Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Gods and Monsters to another fiscal year so Ubisoft is facing quite a lot of problems lately and Sam Fisher can become the savior that the company needs right now.
We don’t know about any plans for an AAA Splinter Cell title but at least thanks to the collaboration between Ubisoft and Facebook, a Splinter Cell VR is on its way and Facebook had signed a VR-exclusivity deal with Ubisoft in order to develop and publish Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell games for the Oculus headset.
At some point in the near future we will be getting another Splinter Cell game from Ubisoft but what do you think about the company’s recent activities? Are you excited about playing a brand new Splinter Cell experience? Share your opinions with us on Twitter.
