Ubisoft CEO confirms they are working on a new Splinter Cell game

In a recently published interview about Ubisoft’s E3 press conference, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed that there is a new Splinter Cell game in the works, but it’s not close to being done yet, according to a blog post on Ubisoft’s official blog.

In the Ubisoft E3 press conference interview which is available on the Ubisoft official YouTube channel, Guillemot gives the fans of the series more information on Splinter Cell.

“What we can say is that we are receiving lots of sketches and proposals on, around the brand and we’re going to pick one up and I think you will be able to see something but you will have to wait for that,” said Guillemot in the interview.

In a different interview with Geoff Keighley during the YouTube’s livestream of E3 that was released before the E3 press conference one, Guillemot said that they have a lot of games to work on before they start working on a new Splinter Cell game, but it is being worked on, according to IGN.

“I can’t say much about that. But, for sure, all the Clancy games are taken care of. It’s just we have quite a lot on our plate at the moment,” said Guillemot in the interview with Keighley.

Guillemot also teased about a new Splinter Cell game in an AMA he held on Reddit during E3. User TheNastyJ asked the CEO “Any word on a [Splinter Cell] game in the works. What can we expect?”

In response, Guillemot said “Hi! Splinter Cell is a brand we talk about a lot. It’s also personally one of my favorite series. We don’t have anything specific to share at the moment but teams are working on different things, so stay tuned for more.”

The last Splinter Cell game to be released was Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist back in 2013. The time between Splinter Cell games has been anywhere from several months to four years. With Guillemot’s words on a new Splinter Cell game (saying that they are looking at sketches and proposals), there probably won’t be another Splinter Cell game for at least a year or two.

Reviews for the last Splinter Cell game, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist, were generally positive according to Metacritic. The game received a score of an 82 for Xbox 360, a score of an 84 for PlayStation 3, a score of an 82 for PC and a score of a 75 for Wii U (…I’m very confused as to how a game like Splinter Cell was released for the Wii U, but it explains the relationship between Ubisoft and Nintendo a little better since they are making Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle together). One review from NZGamer gave the game a score of a 92 for Xbox 360. The full review can be found here.

“The melding of Conviction’s third person shooter elements and more traditional Splinter Cell gameplay are more than the sum of their parts here,” said NZ Gamer. “No doubt about it, this is the definitive Splinter Cell experience. I’d even go as far as to say it’s the best stealth game of this console generation. Sorry, Kojima.” (This was released back when Kojima still made the Metal Gear Solid series)

Unfortunately, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist did not meet Ubisoft’s sales expectations despite the decent reviews of the game. In an interview with Ubisoft Toronto’s managing director Jade Raymond said that Ubisoft wanted to reach $5 million copies sold, according to CBC News. The game only sold around 2 million copies for all platforms, according to Gamespot.

Now, players can hope to see another Splinter Cell game but not anytime soon. We will update on more what Ubisoft has to say about a new Splinter Cell game in the future.
