It's been almost four years since the last entry to the "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell" franchise, with the release of Splinter Cell: Blacklist back in 2013. Although Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon and other offshoots of the Tom Clancy's series have seen new entries, Sam Fisher's adventures have been put on a notable hiatus.
We now have a hope of a new Splinter Cell game on the horizon, following a recent trademark filing from the series' publisher, Ubisoft. As seen on Justia (via SomosXbox), the recently-filed new trademark covers the name "Splinter Cell" within the entertainment sector. If anything, this looks to a reboot of the series, potentially ahead of an announcement at the company's press E3 2017 press conference next week.
This isn't the first time we've heard rumors of a new Splinter Cell title, after a NeoGAF user dropped information on a project supposedly in the works. "Crossing Eden," who had previously established a solid track record for Ubisoft leaks, outlined the company's plans for a new title. The game would also bring back Michael Ironside – voice actor of Sam Fisher in previous Splinter Cell games.
With E3 just around the corner, we'll only be waiting a couple days to see if the trademark filing is indicative of a new title. If true, this will be the first Splinter Cell game for current generation consoles, so we may see some significant improvements. Let us know what you think of a Splinter Cell reboot in the comments.
