Splinter Cell: Blacklist is the latest title in the series, and it was originally released last 2013 for PlayStation 3, Wii U, PC, and Xbox 360. It’s been several years already, and fans are clamoring for another version.

Yves Guillemot, the CEO of Ubisoft mentioned there wouldn’t be anything new until they are sure of the path they’re going to take. At the moment, the developing company is sharply focused on its other titles such as Assassin’s Creed.

It’s over five years since Splinter Cell: Blacklist has hit the market, so it’s understandable for fans to become really enthused to hear some news on Sam Fisher’s next adventure.

Guillemot added there’s an intense pressure for the company to come up with something new about Splinter Cell because there’s too much demand from fans.

The CEO stated there’s a need for them to ensure that what they’ll do next is different and significant from what they did before.

Whey they worked for Splinter Cell, a lot of fans are telling them about particular features and amendments they like so some members of their teams are really anxious about what to do next with the brand.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands had a very powerful Splinter Cell teaser because Michael Ironside, the voice actor for Sam Fisher has made an appearance. Another Easter Egg related to Splinter Cell has been spotted in Far Cry: New Dawn.

What fueled the rumors further is the report that Ubisoft has tapped the game’s original designer. Clint Hocking will work on unreported projects for Ubisoft and fans took it as a strong guest on what’s brewing on the game.

Guillemot has been asked if Ubi will release a new version of Splinter Cell in future consoles, which might come very soon. However, Guillemot is trying to evade such conversations.

Ryan McCaffrey, a host at IGN, has asked the CEO about the longevity of dormancy of the game, and the CEO answered they need to ensure they’ll make something better.

McCaffrey has praised the story of Blacklist as different and better than its predecessors. He said it’s believable and well balanced.

If Ubi announces something related to Splinter Cell, it might happen during E3 2019, when the company does its June briefing. Nothing has been confirmed at this moment and all fans can do is speculate.

The consensus is Ubi might be working on the preliminary stage of making the next Splinter Cell game, but it won’t release any news until the new title has a solid foundation and the company is certain it will come up with something extraordinary.
