We have news that possibly many wanted to hear, but that in the end will not be exactly what they expected. What happens is that it has already been made official that a new installment of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell is on the way, but it will be an exclusive virtual reality project.
As part of Oculus Connect, Ubisoft announced that it is working on new virtual reality projects based on popular franchises. Those chosen to make the leap to becoming VR experiences were Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell.
At the moment, Ubisoft has not revealed many details about these projects. What is a fact is that it will be developed by Red Storm Entertainment in collaboration with Ubisoft Reflections, Ubisoft Dusseldorf and Ubisoft Mumbai. It is also a fact that these projects are designed from scratch to be virtual reality projects.

I’m convinced that they’re actually trying to drive away or just anger the Splinter Cell fanbase. Somewhere in the offices of @Ubisoft there are flyers asking employees to submit new ideas on how to piss off the Splinter Cell fanbase.
