Splinter Cell has been out of print for a long time, but with the upcoming remake , everything will change. The remake not only updates the game’s graphics, textures, and assets, but also includes a rewritten story that is aimed at a new generation of gamers.
Splinter Cell Remake gets a new story
Developer Ubisoft Toronto is currently busy looking for potential writers to update the original game’s story, which will be remastered to appeal to modern audiences.
Last December , Ubisoft officially announced that it had gone to great lengths to develop a Splinter Cell remake to pay homage to the stealth action game that graced our CRT screens in the good old days of the original Xbox back in 2002 .
We’ve received a few more details on the upcoming Splinter Cell remake, and it’s safe to say we’re getting a remake from the ground up. The game is being developed on Ubisoft’s Snowdrop engine known to be used in The Division and the upcoming Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora . In addition, this engine will also be featured in the upcoming Star Wars game.
The story of Splinter Cell is centered around protagonist Sam Fisher , who serves as a top-notch spy agent for the US National Security Agency’s undercover division, the Third Echleon.
Fisher goes behind enemy lines to keep the world in order, while cyberterrorism and international tensions threaten the world with the possibility of a New World War.
“Using the first Splinter Cell game as a foundation, we are rewriting and updating the story for a modern audience.”
“We want to keep the spirit and themes of the original game while exploring our characters and world to make them more authentic and believable.
“As a writer at Ubisoft Toronto, you will join the narrative team and help create a cohesive and compelling storytelling experience for a new audience of Splinter Cell fans.” — Screenwriter’s announcement
Apparently, it was reported almost a year ago, last October , when Ubisoft announced that they had decided to green-light what would be the first mainline Splinter Cell game in over a decade. To be honest, it’s been a long time since we’ve had time to enjoy some impressive dialogue between Sam Fisher and small enemies.
Sources in the development said the game was developed as a means to build trust and return the love of the fans. It looks like Ubisoft wants to catch up with its fans after the disappointments caused by disastrous mobile and VR releases that failed miserably to revive the franchise.
There have been claims that the new Splinter Cell game will draw inspiration from other stealth-based games such as IO Interactive’s Hitman franchise.
While we’re still in the very early stages of development, we’re trying to make sure that the spirit of the early games remains intact in all the aspects that gave early Splinter Cell its identity.
So, since we’re building it from scratch, we’re going to update it visually as well as some of the design elements to match the comfort and expectations of the players, and we’re going to keep the linearity of the original games. don’t make it open world. — Producer Matt West during the game’s announcement.
