It has been five years since the last Splinter game named Splinter Cell: Blacklist was launched globally. But that is about to change because a Reddit user has spotted a new Splinter Cell game listed on Amazon Canada’s official website. The new revelation expects us to believe that a new Splinter Cell game may be announced soon.
The official Amazon Canada website has listed the new game titled Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 2018 along with its publisher Ubisoft. It also displayed a “currently unavailable” status with no information about its release date, product description or the platforms it will support. The featured image is also blank.
The listing, however, has been taken down now, and it could have been a mistake on Amazon’s part. But we also cannot rule out the possibility of its release sometime soon because e-commerce sites are known to tease games way ahead of its official launch date. We have already seen the leak of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 way ahead of its launch by the publishers.
To recall, there have been previous reports that a new Splinter game is in the making. Michael Ironside, who plays the character of Sam Fisher in the Splinter Cell series had revealed in 2016, that a new Splinter Cell game was in works at the official work facility of Ubisoft. It has been two years now since the revelation was made and we can expect the new game to be announced by its publisher this year itself.
During E3 2017, Yannis Mallat, CEO of Ubisoft Montreal had claimed that the company was in plans to revive the Splinter Cell game series again. We can expect a new Splinter game to release this year as Ubisoft does not have any big releases lined up this year and it has been a year since the last big release, Assassin’s Creed: Origins took place in October 2017.
With E3 2018 just a few months away, we can expect an official announcement from Ubisoft about a new Splinter Cell game and a pre-order listing on Amazon. However, the name of the game is going to different from Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 2018 in all possibility.
