Speaking to Game Informer, Ubisoft has shun a brief light on whether or not we will see another adventure from Sam Fisher in the future.
Fans are hoping for Michael Ironside to reprise the iconic role in a fully-fledged sequel, although the reality of that remains somewhat cloudy.
In a recent interview, Serge Hascoet, Chief Executive Office at Ubisoft, said that the series’ future is “not a question of will, but of means.”
‘I love Splinter Cell. I love Prince of Persia. I can’t disclose any information at this time, but I can say we are fighting for resources. It’s not a question of will, it’s a question of means,’ he said.
Many, ourselves included, expected a new entry or even a reboot of sorts to emerge at E3 2018, but the show went by without any such appearance.

Despite the recasting of Sam Fisher, we got a lot of enjoyment from Splinter Cell Blacklist, awarding it 8/10 in our review:
‘Blacklist is far from the disaster many feared. While you can play it as an all-out action game, you’ll find the going tough, and it’s still best played with a more stealthy approach.’
