Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell remake is finally getting off the ground, with the publishing looking to hire more people for the project. From what can be seen, it looks like the game is still in early production based on the job listings.
On Twitter, HitmarkerJobs revealed that Ubisoft is still putting ot job listings for the upcoming remake. Everything from Concept Artists to Gameplay Animators are on the table, hinting that the game is still in early production.
Judging from all of the job listings, it looks like fans won’t be getting the Splinter Cell remake anytime soon. With the high quality of recent horror game remakes such as Dead Space and Resident Evil 4, we hope that Ubisoft’s project is just as polished by the time of release.
Prior to the remake’s announcement, we haven’t had an official game in the series since the 7th generation of consoles. That’s the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii era for those that don’t know. 2013’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist was the last game in the series, which means it’s been almost a decade since we got a new game.
Admittedly, Ubisoft seems to be struggling a bit with some of their recent releases. We still don’t have an update on Prince of Persia: Sands of Time remake . With the iconic platformer’s rushed state upon its reveal, Ubisoft is hopefully still working on bringing the title up to snuff.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 has also had its fair share of production woes, to the point that it doesn’t look like a proper sequel anymore.

Hopefully, the developers at Ubisoft take their time with the upcoming Splinter Cell remake, since fans really want this to blow their minds. Considering the innovations of stealth that we’ve seen in Batman Arkham and Metal Gear Solid, Sam Fisher has a lot of stiff competition.
