A listing for Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell 2018 has popped up over on Amazon's Canadian website, although the product is listed as "currently available" and has no information on the release date or platforms.
As with all placeholder listings, it's entirely possible that this is a speculative entry by Amazon itself, which may have no knowledge of the game. The latest release in the series was 2013's Blacklist.
For the time being, we have to wait for the developer to make a statement but everything points to E3 being able to enjoy one of the most beloved sagas of the company.
People are excited because we haven't seen a new Splinter Cell game in a long time. Without a doubt, this is a great news that will excite a large part of the community.
Ubisoft hasn't officially confirmed a new Splinter Cell game, but back in 2016 we already reported on a rumor stating that Michael Ironside would be returning as Sam Fisher in a new Splinter Cell installment.
"I can't say much about that". He was quick to retreat back to the success of their current games - Ghost Recon: Wildlands, The Division, and Rainbow Six Siege - saying that "all of the Clancy games are really coming along, so we are not forgetting Splinter Cell". Since then, Sam Fisher has retreated into the shadows, not to be seen or heard from. For sure, all the Clancy games are taken care of. Hit the comments below.
