After being widely rumored, Ubisoft has officially confirmed a new entry in Splinter Cell franchise, or more specifically, a remake of the first Splinter Cell title.
Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell redefined stealth in the early 2000s and ushered in a new generation of stealth action that continues to this day. The series featured multiple entries throughout the 2000s, with the most recent being the Splinter Cell Blacklist in 2013.
Sam Fisher has appeared in several Tom Clancy titles, including Rainbow Six Siege and the two recent Ghost Recon titles. The new title essentially restarts the timeline and starts fresh.
However, fans waiting for a new title seem split between excitement and trepidation. Let’s take a closer look.
Splinter Cell Remake: What are fans saying?
Splinter Cell Remake is in the early stages of development. It will continue the essence of previous titles and be a linear game in contrast to Ubisoft’s recent attempt at massive scale. open world. The game is being developed by Ubisoft Toronto, the studio behind Far Cry 6 and Watch Dogs Legion. The studio also topped the 2013 Splinter Cell Blacklist. Let’s see what the community is thinking about the title.
The majority of the fan base is quite delighted with the announcement and is sharing their excitement on social media:
A Twitter user also brought up the topic of Voice Actors. While Michael Ironside symbolized Sam Fisher’s gruff voice, he was replaced by Eric Johnson for Splinter Cell Blacklist. While he did a great job, and his casting is understandable, given that Ubisoft wanted to take Sam Fisher in a younger direction, that drew a lot of criticism. Since then, however, Michael Ironside has reprized his role in various guest appearances by Sam Fisher.
Another topic that also came up in the discussion was micro-reaction and the implementation of NFT in the game. Ubisoft is known for filling its titles with anti-consumer microtransactions that lock the majority of entries, which sometimes change state behind a wall of fees.
Ubisoft’s recent introduction of NFTs or non-fungible tokens in Ghost Recon Breakpoint has misled the community. While the Splinter Cell remake will be linear and story-driven, given the nature of previous titles, this isn’t the first time Ubisoft has implemented microtransactions in a single-player title.
