Ubisoft has been hinting at one other Splinter Cell recreation for just a few years now with out ever confirming there’s one really 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 night time imaginative and prescient goggles on Twitter this week with a brief caption in Spanish alongside it. When translated, the caption reads: “It’s worthwhile to perceive the darkness to face it”.
In true Splinter Cell style, it doesn’t give a lot away. However in true web style, 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 maintaining 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 instances; again in early 2018 followers have been excited by an inventory on Amazon Canada that got here to nothing, whereas earlier this yr (by way of PCGamesN) The Division 2’s Julian Gerighty really tweeted that he was engaged on the subsequent Splinter Cell just for it to later be dismissed as a joke. In July 2019, it was even reported that Fb is attempting to safe a Splinter Cell VR recreation for its Oculus headsets.
Up to now, none of those rumors have resulted in any form of official announcement. Nevertheless, Splinter Cell stays one among 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 into consideration, it’s arduous to inform whether or not this explicit publish is one thing to be taken critically, 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 huge gaming occasions this yr, equivalent to The Sport Awards, that might be an excellent place for Ubisoft to make an announcement, if there really is one to be made. At this level, although, it’s only a case of watching, ready and hoping.
