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.
Splinter Cell Remake’s New Direction: Casino Espionage?
As the gaming community buzzes with excitement about Ubisoft’s announcement of a Splinter Cell remake, a curious detail in the job listing has caught the attention of many. Among the qualifications was an intriguing mention: experience in developing online casino gameplay. Could this suggest a new direction for our beloved Sam Fisher?
Speculation is rife among fans and industry insiders. Some believe that Ubisoft might be considering blending the gritty world of espionage with the thrill of high-stakes online gambling. There’s an enticing potential storyline emerging from the rumor mill: Sam Fisher going undercover, not just as a conventional agent, but as an elite online poker player.
If these rumors hold any weight, players might find themselves diving into the world of digital casinos, playing strategic casino games like blackjack, roulette, or poker, all while maintaining their cover and gathering critical intel. It’s a fresh angle that could blend the tension-filled stealth sequences the series is known for with the unpredictable nature of casino gameplay. While this is purely speculative, the idea certainly adds another layer of anticipation for what Ubisoft has in store for the Splinter Cell community. Only time will tell if these rumors have any basis in reality.
