This news could be a huge sign of relief for the fans. As the community has been nothing but frustrated with the devs’ choices of the past couple of years. Especially after Ubisoft announced their upcoming project, developed as a part of the partnership with Facebook, will be VR exclusive.

As per a reliable industry insider and writer for VGC, sources suggestUbisoft has greenlit” the next Splinter Cell game. And if that wasn’t enough, they even went as far as claiming the title is in the “early phase of production“. Some reports even say Splinter Cell’s previous title’s developer based in Montreal isn’t in charge of the apparent game.

If any of these claims turn out to be accurate, the community will not have to wait much longer for a word from the devs themselves. Ubisoft could possibly announce the next title of the Splinter Cell franchise as early as next year.
