It has been revealed that the remake of the original Splinter Cell will update the game’s story for a modern audience.
The news comes via a job listing for a writer to be involved in the game from Ubisoft’s Toronto studio as it was discovered by the PSU crowd.
Much of what is detected indicates that those who collaborate in the remake of Splinter Cell will be involved in the plot update of the game.The original post mentions the following:
“Using the first Splinter Cell game as a base, we are rewriting and updating the story for a modern audience. We want to keep the spirit and themes of the original game while exploring our characters and world to make them more authentic and believable.
Also add the following:
“As a writer at Ubisoft Toronto, you will join the Narrative team and help create a cohesive and compelling narrative experience for a new audience of Splinter Cell fans.”
The great legacy of Splinter Cell
The original Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell from 2002 is a classic stealth game with the kind of densely plotted espionage story long associated with the Clancy brand.
NSA agent Sam Fisher is sent to Georgia to investigate the disappearance of two CIA agents and slowly unravels a plot spanning genocide in Azerbaijan and a cyberattack in the United States.
While the game’s themes don’t have an exact date, it is explicitly set in 2004, and much of the technological and geopolitical context of this story will have changed a lot in the last 20 years.
It’s also fair to say that Clancy’s aggressive, hands-on approach to foreign policy is much less fashionable and acceptable now than it was in 2002.
Ubisoft’s new writer and remake creative team will have to walk a difficult line as they rework the story for modernity. players
No time to play the remake
Ubisoft announced the Splinter Cell remake in December of last year after a long silence on the future of the once-popular stealth franchise.
No release dates or platforms have been announced for the new version. Ubisoft Toronto is building the game on Ubisoft’s Snowdrop engine, the basis for The Division series, as well as upcoming Ubisoft Avatar and Star Wars titles.
