A job listing for a scriptwriter on the upcoming Splinter Cell Remake at Ubisoft has indicated the development team are revamping the story for modern audiences.
Here’s a description of the job:
Using the first Splinter Cell game as our foundation we are rewriting and updating the story for a modern-day audience. We want to keep the spirit and themes of the original game while exploring our characters and the world to make them more authentic and believable.
As a Scriptwriter at Ubisoft Toronto, you will join the Narrative team and help create a cohesive and compelling narrative experience for a new audience of Splinter Cell fans.
The Splinter Cell Remake is set to utilise the Snowdrop engine and promises to deliver state-of-the-art visuals and revamped stealth gameplay, while Ubisoft intends to preserve the “heart of the Splinter Cell experience.”
Ubisoft has not announced a release date for the Splinter Cell Remake, although at this point the game is still very early in production.
