New job ad suggests story changes


Sam Fisher, as always ready and determined to find the darkest corners of the level.

Last year we received the good news that Ubisoft Toronto was working on a remake of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell. A new job posting from the development studio, which is already responsible for Splinter Cell: Blacklist, now reveals that the game’s 20-year-old story is also up for review.

Old game, new story?

As Ubisoft Toronto announces in its job posting, the studio is looking for a new screenwriter. He or she will help them “rewrite and update history for modern audiences”. The rewrite could theoretically mean drastic changes, but fear not, they probably won’t go that far after all. They want to keep the spirit and themes of the 2002 original. However, players still have to wait and see how much these changes will actually kick in.

No release information yet.

As the game is still in a very early stage of development, there is no information on a possible release date or what platforms the remake will appear on. You’ll probably have to wait a bit before you can sneak into houses with Sam Fisher again.
