Splinter Cell Remake has been very tight-lipped about its development since its announcement. The remake, based on the stealth game created by Tom Clancy in collaboration with Ubisoft, was announced last year in December.
The developers dropped a new look at the upcoming title last week in the form of concept art. However, that is not the only Splinter Cell project in the works (via VGC).

The British Broadcasting Channel, aka BBC, will host a radio drama show based on Ubisoft’s classic stealth action game. It will be an eight-part series, hosted on Fridays from December 2 at 2:15 pm.
The story follows Fourth Echelon agent Sam Fisher in a new story. Fisher will go around recruiting and training the next generation of Splinter Cell operatives for the division under the NSA.
The official synopsis reads the following:
“When a lethal assassin from Fisher’s past returns from the dead on a mission of murder, he is thrust into a race against time as a sinister threat to global security is revealed.”
The cast includes Andonis Anthony (The Archers), portraying Sam Fisher. Daisy Head takes on the role of Fisher’s daughter Sarah. Additional cast includes Rosalie Craig, Sacha Dhawan, Nikesh Patel and Will Poulter (The Maze Runner; We’re The Millers).
Poulter talked about the show in a statement.
“I hope fans of the Splinter Cell game enjoy this, as not only does it have all the action, tension and excitement that the game is famous for, but it also has more elements.
“There is a lot of comedy, the drama is expanded and horizons broadened by the characters and what they get up to. It is taking the best of Splinter Cell and building on that to make something really well-rounded.”
All episodes of the show will go live as a boxset on BBC Sounds in the Limelight on 2nd December.
