Alright folks, add another game to the pre-E3 surprises (Killzone 3, Gears of War 3, LittleBigPlanet 2), this time, though it doesn’t have a title, Ubisoft have announced that they will be making a sequel to the recently released Splinter Cell Conviction.
Ubisoft Monteral will not be the ones making it though, this time the title is in the hands of Jade Raymond, from Ubisoft Tornoto, while Alex Parizeau will return in the same role.
During an interview with Gameasutra, Parizeau said, “We have very high ambitions for the project, and it’s a great opportunity, because Splinter Cell has a lot of visibility, and we’re really hoping to attract a lot of senior talent and people who have a lot of experience in the industry. We we want to build the studio around that, a really strong core team, and that [Splinter Cell] is going to provide us with a really good platform to do that. I think we have a really special chance to build something strong from the start.”
“With so many risks, some are going to pay off and some aren’t, and I think that’s why we stumbled for a while during the development cycle. But here in Toronto we have a strong tech platform, a strong platform for the design, and we have a core team in place that we can focus on growing, and on creating a project based on the pillars we put in place creating Splinter Cell: Conviction.” He added.
Expect at least a name reveal during E3 this year (likely Micorosoft’s).
