Ubisoft celebrated Spinter Cell’s 20th anniversary by releasing a new video that reflects on the series and discusses the upcoming remake. The video revealed some details about the status of the project, as well as some early images.
The Splinter Cell remake was first announced last December, but we still know very little about it, other than that it’s being built from scratch in Snowdrop Engine (used to make The Division, Mario + Rabbids games). In the video, the team states that the experience will be identical to the 2002 title, but that it wants to implement improvements and features introduced in later Splinter Cell titles and smooth out some rough edges. For example, the team wants to give players more options to de-escalate situations if things go wrong instead of getting an instant Game Over.
The development team also informs that the project is still in the early prototype stage. As such, the studio will go dark “for a while” to focus on making the game, so it’ll likely be a while before we hear anything substantial about the remake again. In the meantime, take a look at the gallery of new concept images shared during the presentation below.
Splinter Cell has no release window or announced platforms. This remake is just one of many to come, and you can keep track of them all by checking out our big list of upcoming video game remakes.
