Rumour: New Splinter Cell In The Works

Seems like we might just be paying a visit back to our trust old tri-focal goggles and SC3000 soon. Ubisoft has just registered a new Splinter Cell trademark.

According to the website Justia, which tracks trademark registrations, Ubisoft has requested a new brand name for Splinter Cell. The trademark shows that it was applied only recently, on May 28 this year.

This isn’t the first hint of a new Splinter Cell game, last year August a NeoGAF user indicated that Ubisoft was working on a new Splinter Cell title and that Michael Ironside would return as the voice of Sam Fisher.

“Regarding other games, I haven’t been involved with Steep or Wildlands, but I was surprised Splinter Cell didn’t appear at E3. I know Ironside is back. He was in the studio, I said Hi to him and his daughter. He was shooting a movie with Amy Jo Johnson, and I know someone who worked on that set and Ironside confirmed to him he was doing the new Splinter Cell. I know Toronto has the mocap studio for it.I’m hoping to hear or see something unofficial, if not official, this year, but its been hard to get anything beyond “It’s Happening”.”

If the rumour is true, I think we’ll be up for a pretty awesome E3 this year, especially considering that we haven’t had a Splinter Cell game since Blacklist, which released just under 4 years ago.
