The Splinter Cell game series hasn't seen a new game since 2013. Even the E3 game fair has passed and we haven't heard anything from Ubisoft. Its CEO Yves Guillemot says the return of the series needs to be well planned.
In an interview with IGN, Guillemot states that the production of the latest Splinter Cell has come under heavy pressure from fans of the saga. Players in the series wanted changes in certain ways and others to stay the same. As they say, you cannot please Greeks and Trojans.
Guillemot says the next Splinter Cell game will be done more carefully and in order to preserve the elements that made the saga as popular as the detailed story and stealth elements.
CEO suggested a possible Splinter Cell VR
During a recent interview, Guillemot indicated that Ubisoft plans to expand the Splinter Cell saga to other devices. The first thing that comes to mind is Splinter Cell for Android and iOS. However, it is likely that the CEO is referring to a virtual reality version of the game.
Just last month, Facebook signed a deal with Ubisoft for VR exclusivity on Splinter Cell and Assassin's Creed games. Importantly, Facebook owns the Oculus Rift virtual reality glasses. Apparently Zuckerberg wants to expand the library of available games.
Splinter Cell in virtual reality has a lot of potential. Its elements of stealth and atmosphere would fit well into the VR experience. The Ubisoft CEO has not advanced any release dates so don't expect to see any news anytime soon.
