The Splinter Cell remake will be rewritten to be more relevant to the “modern audience”.
It reads, “Using the first game of Splinter Cell as a foundation, we are rewriting and updating the story for modern audiences.” “We want to keep the spirit and themes of the original game, but explore the characters and the world to make it more authentic and believable.”
Splinter Cell was first released in 2002 and introduced Sam Fisher, an NSA black ops agent investigating the disappearance of two CIA officers. As the story unfolds, Sam finds himself in the middle of a politically intriguing conspiracy as the world teeters on the brink of all-out war. It’s up to Sam to use his stealth abilities to avert a global crisis.
Now that Crisis appears to have a more modern spin, though it’s not clear what form that will take.
“As a scriptwriter at Ubisoft Toronto, I will be joining the Narrative team to help create cohesive and compelling narrative experiences for a new audience of Splinter Cell fans,” reads the list.
Little has been revealed about the project since the remake was announced last year.
IGN’s original review of Splinter Cell gave it a 9.4/10, stating: A keen eye and common sense, along with style, panache and coolness, make Splinter Cell a worthy and valid addition to every patient and intelligent gamer’s collection. “
