Ubisoft Toronto, in an interview with CVG.com teased details about the next title in the Splinter Cell franchise.
Rumored to be titled “Splinter Cell: Retribution”, Ubisoft Toronto’s studio head Jade Raymond told CVG that the new title will explore one of the franchise’s “root themes”, while still maintaining its persona as an action flick game.
“It will have all of the action flick elements for sure, but we’re trying to also explore something a little bit more interesting that is actually one of the themes that’s at the root of the franchise historically, but never has been surfaced so much,” Raymond told CVG. “I can’t really say more on this!”
Raymond also debunked any rumors of the company working on a new IP title, and said all of their attention is focused “100% on Splinter Cell”. But the studio would like to work on a new IP at some point, just not at the moment.
“We’re not actually working on a big new IP yet within the studio,” she explained. “It’s one of the mandates and we’re definitely starting up some things in that direction, but we’re not working on a big new IP yet.”
GTA Gamers decided to reach out to find out more about the title. Heather Steele of Ubisoft Toronto said in an e-mail to GTA Gamers, “We are indeed making the new installment of Splinter Cell at Ubisoft Toronto. However, we haven’t disclosed any details about the game yet. But stay tuned more to come on this soon!”
So sadly in our attempts to uncover more information, we’ve come to a halt. But that’s okay, GTA Gamers will continue to follow the story as it develops.
