You knew it was only a matter of time – Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 4 (working title), is in the works, according to Ubisoft. The game will be available in Spring 2006 for current and next generation consoles as well as for PC. Hmmm, they say it's coming out in the Spring, and they say "next generation consoles" and not just "console." Does that mean Ubi knows something we don't about the PS3 launch?
“Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Chaos Theory received record-setting reviews and countless awards,” said Yves Guillemot, president and CEO of Ubisoft. “Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 4 will be even more thrilling and heart-pounding than its ground-breaking predecessors. This new version will both enrich the gaming experience on current consoles and take full advantage of the capacities of next-generation consoles to deliver players the most fabulous gaming experience ever.”
Ubisoft promises that Splinter Cell 4 will innovate and revolutionize the franchise, taking the saga of Sam Fisher into entirely new territory, expanding the story and depth of his character. No other details were announced, but we'll bring you future updates as soon as they come to light.
