Ubisoft has been hinting at one other Splinter Cell recreation for a number of years now with out ever confirming there’s one truly coming. Now, we nonetheless don’t have any affirmation however, courtesy of Ubisoft Spain, we do have one other teasing social media publish.
Ubisoft Spain posted a picture of Splinter Cell protagonist Sam Fisher in his iconic evening imaginative and prescient goggles on Twitter this week with a brief caption in Spanish alongside it. When translated, the caption reads: “It’s essential to perceive the darkness to face it”.
In true Splinter Cell vogue, it doesn’t give a lot away. However in true web vogue, there are hopes it’s main as much as a much bigger announcement.
The publish hasn’t appeared on the Twitter feeds of some other Ubisoft areas—even the official Splinter Cell Twitter account is protecting characteristically quiet—however the tweet hasn’t been faraway from the Ubisoft Spain account, both, so it is unlikely to have been a slip up.

It is value noting that this isn’t the primary Splinter Cell rumor we’ve seen in current occasions; again in early 2018 followers had been excited by a list on Amazon Canada that got here to nothing, whereas earlier this 12 months (by way of PCGamesN) The Division 2’s Julian Gerighty truly tweeted that he was engaged on the following Splinter Cell just for it to later be dismissed as a joke. In July 2019, it was even reported that Fb is making an attempt to safe a Splinter Cell VR recreation for its Oculus headsets.
Up to now, none of those rumors have resulted in any type of official announcement. Nonetheless, Splinter Cell stays certainly one of Ubisoft’s most beloved franchises and in earlier interviews CEO Yves Guillemot has mentioned (by way of Gamersky) that the writer nonetheless has plans for the model.
Taking all of this under consideration, it’s arduous to inform whether or not this explicit publish is one thing to be taken severely, or whether or not it’s merely one other case of Ubisoft teasing the franchise for enjoyable and reminding followers that it holds their future Splinter Cell-related happiness in its arms.
There are nonetheless a few massive gaming occasions this 12 months, comparable to The Sport Awards, that could possibly be a perfect place for Ubisoft to make an announcement, if there truly is one to be made. At this level, although, it’s only a case of watching, ready and hoping.
