An insider unveils some rumors about Ubisoft’s next Splinter Cell, which seems to revive pure infiltration, but which should also tempt the open world …
It has been several months since the new Splinter Cell is rumored. Ubisoft would have given the green light this year for the return of the undercover franchise, while the French publisher is in full swing transformation of its various licenses.
After The Division in free-to-play, a Rainbow Six in the universe of aliens and science fiction, or a Ghost Recon in PUBG mode, the new Splinter Cell would be transformed … into an open world.
This is not the worst idea Ubisoft has had this year, if we are to believe the information transmitted here by the insider. Tom henderson, announcing “a kind of open world”, very close to what Microsoft did on its Halo Infinite (we recall that it was considered fairly unanimously as small or even “useless” by the press). It also confirms an episode very focused on infiltration, in these terms: “A more stealthy version of Assassin’s Creed”.
Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell game that is in early development is currently scoped as a … You guessed it … Open World of sorts.
