The original Splinter Cell is getting a full remake

After literally years of patiently waiting, punctuated by the occasional elaborate troll, Splinter Cell fans have finally got the news they were waiting for—sort of. Ubisoft announced today that a new Splinter Cell in development, but it’s actually a remake of the original.

The new game will be a full remake rather than a simple remastering in order to accommodate the “refined palate” of modern gamers. “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,” producer Matt West said. “So, as we’re building it from the ground up, we’re going to update it visually, as well as some of the design elements to match player comfort and expectations, and we are going to keep it linear like the original games, not make it open world.”
