Last December, fans of Ubisoft’s stealth game Splinter Cell were in for a pleasant surprise. The company confirmed that they are actively remaking the first title in the series from 2002. With Ubisoft’s usage of the iconic character in various titles like Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Rainbow Six Siege, the interest in the character only grew higher.
Unfortunately, we have not heard much about the title in a long time. While a few months ago, the company started hiring a scriptwriter to rewrite the story, things are not looking great for the title internally.

On Linkedin, David Grivel, the director of the remake, posted about his departure from the title (via VGC). Grivel, in a post, said the following: “time for (him) to go on a new adventure”.
Ubisoft has not stated the reason for the director’s departure. However, it seems things are slowly shuffling and restructuring internally.
The upcoming remake for Splinter Cell plans on using the Snowdrop Engine. Snowdrop powers game like Division, Division 2, the upcoming Avatar title and the in-development Star Wars game.
Splinter Cell follows the black-ops operative Sam Fisher, who works for US National Security Agency’s secret outfit, Third Echelon. Players go through numerous locations across various games to stop tension among countries and subdue terrorists.
No platform information regarding the Splinter Cell remake is available yet. However, We can expect the title to launch for PC and the next generation of consoles such as PS5 and Xbox Series.
