Splinter Cell remake to update story for a “modern day audience”

We’ve finally got some tidbits on the previously announced Splinter Cell remake, as pror there were few details given outside of the game using their new Snowdrop engine.

While the Snowdrop engine will also be used for upcoming titles such as Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and their own Star Wars game, a new job listing from Ubisoft might hint at some of the changes coming for the game compared to that of its original.

The company is hiring for a scriptwriter for the game, which has all the usual when it comes to a hiring page, however when looking closer there’s a tiny note that confirms a big change for the remake.

One part states they are looking to use the first Splinter Cell as a foundation as they are “rewriting and updating the story for a modern-day audience”, though at the same time they wish to keep the spirit and themes of the original game.

The upcoming Splinter Cell remake is the only current project Ubisoft has in the works for the franchise, which would be the first mainline release in a decade. They had been working on a VR game for the series, but recently canceled it alongside Ghost Recon Frontline.

A couple years back, they had also announced plans for an anime of the series with John Wick writer Derek Kolstad, though few details have been given since it’s initial announcement other than small amount in 2021.
