The studio also shared the announcement from its official Twitter handle with a blog post offering more details. Old-school gamers would know what it was like to jump into the shoes of everyone’s beloved spy, Sam Fisher. The original title did not make things easier for fans and offered no additional help to solve the elaborate puzzle. Gamers had to fight tooth and nail with each aspect of the level to figure out how to resolve it.

The studio has promised that the remake will adhere to the norms and rules that were followed way back in the day to produce the game. The team will only spend time overhauling the game’s performance, upgrading its visuals and innovations will only be added wherever it is needed.
