Splinter Cell – Next Gen Game Already Being Planned

Ubisoft Toronto’s Art Director, Scott Lee, has stated that there are already plans in the works for a next-generation Splinter Cell game.

Specifically, he stated that even though Splinter Cell: Blacklist may not be due out for release until August, that doesn’t mean that future franchise iterations for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 aren’t being planned.

Lee says: “Sam Fisher and Splinter Cell is a big and very important franchise for Ubisoft, and yes they do support the franchise.”

“Obviously we’re working very hard on current-gen systems and we’re super excited that we’re going to be across all platforms.” he added.

“For next-gen there are a lot of plans in the works, obviously we can’t talk about that at the moment but I definitely look forward to seeing Sam in new adventures, bigger and better as we go along.

“Sam will be back.”
