Ubisoft confirms a Splinter Cell remake is in development

Ubisoft has announced that its Toronto studio is working on a remake of the first Splinter Cell.

Ubisoft Toronto, a studio employing 600 people and responsible for the development of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Far Cry 5 & 6, and Watch Dogs: Legion, is working on a remake of the first Splinter Cell.

The studio will work with the Snowdrop graphics engine, which is also being used in the development of the upcoming Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. It is notable for delivering new gameplay possibilities and dynamic lighting management.

In a press release and accompanying video, Creative Director Chris Auty, Producer Matt West, and Technical Producer Peter Handrinos spoke more on the project.

They state that they wish to remain faithful to the original Splinter Cell, particularly in its linear levels, while offering features and enjoyment worthy of current production values.

The project appears to be a full remake, mixing the new with the old without changing the fundamentals of the original, such as its stealth gameplay.

Ubisoft Toronto has also put out a hiring call for those who would like to work on the project, with several positions available.

The last major Splinter Cell title was 2013's Blacklist. No date has been communicated for the remake's release.
