Ubisoft has announced that it has greenlit the development of a remake of its stealth classic, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell.
Announced on Ubisoft’s website, the remake will be developed by lead studio Ubisoft Toronto, and will be built from the ground up using the Snowdrop engine, which is the tech being used for The Division games and the upcoming Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora game and Ubisoft’s as-yet-untitled Star Wars game.
In an interview posted to the Ubisoft website, producer Matt West said, “I think it kind of has to be a remake as opposed to a remaster. Although we’re still in the very earliest stages of development, what we’re trying to do is make sure the spirit of the early games remains intact, in all of the ways that gave early Splinter Cell its identity.”
Part of keeping that remake true to the series identity is that it will be a linear game, and not open world akin to many other Ubisoft games.
