A new mainline entry has entered production…
Ubisoft has greenlit what will be its first mainline Splinter Cell game in a decade.
That’s according to development sources, who told us that the title has been put into production as a means of winning back fans frustrated by recent efforts to revive the franchise in the mobile and VRspaces.
It’s not clear which studios are working on the project, though two people with knowledge of Ubisoft’s plans suggested the new Splinter Cell was being led by a studio outside of its traditional Montreal base.
The title is in an early phase of production, the sources said, but there’s a small chance it could be announced next year.
