We’ve been waiting for the return of Sam Fisher for a good while, and it seems like we’re constantly getting teased with it to just come up short. Well, a new report claims that a new Splinter Cell is coming, alongside a brand new Assassin’s Creed, in an unexpected way.
According to a report by The Information, Mark Zuckerberg himself is pushing to have more exclusives to the Oculus VR storefront (Facebook owns Oculus, if you weren’t aware), and that’s resulted in some new exclusives for the Oculus from both of those legendary stealth franchises. Whether those will be completely original titles, older titles retrofitted into VR or VR modes for upcoming titles isn’t clarified.
We’re filing this under rumor for now due to the, as of now, unverified source of the information. It’s not completely outside the realm of possibility when you consider the scope and wealth of Facebook, so maybe Sam Fisher will finally show himself again soon.
