The remake of Splinter Cell aims to broaden the Ubisoft franchise for current users ...

Splinter Cell is a game that made Ubisoft a household name in the early 2000s. The first Splinter Cell was released in 2002 and received a lot of attention from different sites until the current release, Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

Ubisoft is planning a comeback. A fresh one at that, as they want the game's narrative to stay relevant for modern-day users.

Ubisoft has posted a job opportunity for a scriptwriter at their Toronto headquarters. The job listing says:

We are rewriting and updating the story for a modern-day audience by using the first Splinter Cell game as our foundation. We want to keep the original game's charm and themes while exploring our characters and the world in order to make them more authentic and believable.

You will join the Narrative team at Ubisoft Toronto and help create a cohesive and compelling narrative experience for a new demographic of Splinter Cell listeners.

Ubisoft's Snowdrop engine will be used in the Splinter Cell remake, the same ones that were used in the Star Wars Projects and the Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. Ubisoft has previously stated that the game will be rebuilt from the ground up, and that using a new engine would be the best choice.

It's interesting to see what Ubisoft intends to do with the Splinter Cell story's rewrite and update. With the timing of the job posting, it's safe to say the game is still in the early stages of development.

The remake will likely be overlooked this year or the following year.
