Splinter Cell Reboot Possibly in Development

It’s been 4 years since we last saw anything of Ubisoft’s brilliant tactical series Splinter Cell, but that might all be about to change according to a recent trademark filing.

The exploits of superspy Sam Fisher were last seen in 2013 when Ubisoft released the rather exceptional Splinter Cell: Blacklist onto consoles and PC, but with no further additions since August 2013, the series fell silent. However, a trademark filing recently discovered on Justia via XboxSomos shows that Ubisoft has re-registered a new licence for the Splinter Cell brand.

Interestingly, the trademark was only filed by the studio a few week’s back (May 15th) with signs pointing towards a possible reboot for the series and probable announcement at E3 next week.

This latest hint isn’t the first time we’ve heard rumours of a new title in the Splinter Cell series. Back in August 2015, a NeoGaf user with a track record for correctly leaking information detailed plans for a new title that would see Michael Ironside reprise his role as Sam Fisher.

Could Ubisoft be gearing up to announce a new Splinter Cell title at E3? We’ll find out next week when the studio takes to the stage at the Convention Center in Los Angeles.

Dan has been gaming for nearly 30 years and has survived everything from Nuclear Fallouts to Zombie Outbreaks but his main love is Survival Horror and don't we all know it. Favourite games include Resident Evil and Grand Theft Auto, he can be regularly found cruising the streets of Vice City listening to the classics.
