Splinter Cell Remake

In December 2021, Ubisoft announced that a remake for Splinter Cell was officially in development. Built by Ubisoft Toronto from the ground up with Snowdrop Engine, it will have “new-generation visuals and gameplay” while retaining the “spirit” of the earlier games. It will also have an updated script according to a recent Scriptwriter listing.

The studio noted, “Using the first Splinter Cell game as our foundation we are rewriting and updating the story for a modern-day audience.” It wants to “keep the spirit and themes of the original game while exploring our characters and the world to make them more authentic and believable.” The goal is to create a “cohesive and compelling narrative experience” that will appeal to “a new audience of Splinter Cell fans.”

Some aspects of the job include dialogue for in-game VO and cinematic scenes, scripted and systemic dialogue like NPC conversation, developing character arcs, and so on. The Scriptwriter will also be “Revising and editing dialogue based on director/lead feedback to ensure quality and consistency.”

As such, the updates and rewrites could ensure better flow for the dialogue, along with being more realistic and relevant to the modern age. Time will ultimately tell if any story beats are changed or outright removed, but it wouldn’t be the strangest thing for a remake, as seen with the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3.

The Splinter Cell remake is in “the very earliest stages of development” as of last year, so it may be a while before anything is revealed. Stay tuned in the meantime for any details.
