Ubisoft have revealed a Splinter Cell remake that will go beyond the traditional remaster, rebuilding the game from the ground up.
Here's everything we know so far about the upcoming Splinter Cell remake.
LATEST - Reveal Trailer Shows What's Next
To kick things off, Ubisoft have pulled no punches, putting out a lengthy reveal trailer to show off what's coming in the Splinter Cell remaster.
This trailer includes developer commentary to give some extra insight into the series, why this remaster is happening now, and why players should have high expectations for its launch (including the use of a new game engine).
Check out the reveal trailer in full below!
We don't have an official release date for the Splinter Cell remake, and we may be far from one as Ubisoft is still hiring for the project and have only just revealed its existence.
The reveal from Ubisoft also states they're now "starting development" - so expect a long road before stealthing around with the iconic gear.
With that, we expect a 2023 release date at the earliest for this new Splinter Cell game, and 2024 is certainly in the realm of possibility.
New Game Engine
The Splinter Cell remake will go far beyond a remaster, according to Ubisoft. And that process is led by rebuilding the game from the ground up in the Snowdrop engine.
Gamers should get to know the Snowdrop engine, as it's currently being used to develop Ubisoft's next Star Wars game as well as Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.
This engine will step up the visual experience of Splinter Cell massively in line with new generation gaming, which should really show in Splinter Cell where every detail matters.
While Ubisoft haven't confirmed anything outright, an interview with developer Peter Handrionos suggests that the Splinter Cell remake is coming to next gen consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
While Handrionos discussed the importance of nailing the game on next gen consoles, current gen consoles weren't mentioned, which could mean this game ends up as a next gen exclusive.
