According to a number of sources, a new Splinter Cell will be unveiled at E3 2012, with a release date of around January 2013.
I'll be skipping Blacklist since read the article and it states it will play like Conviction
If it plays like Conviction then Ubi is more desperate than we thought.
Ubisoft doesn't care about the Tom Clancy brand anymore....Used to love the tactical/stealth gameplay of these titles.... Rainbow Six Ghost Recon Splinter Cell
It's so sad because the Splinter Cell series was my favorite during the ps2 days...now it's all gone to sh!t :( Seriously though, how awesome was Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory? God I missed those days....
Who in their right mind liked Conviction as a SPLINTER CELL game? It was fun, sure. But I can get third person shooting from other titles. If I play a SPLINTER CELL I want stealth, non-lethal options, ability to sneak past guards, I want to lockpick, I want NIGHT VISION, THERMAL VISION, EMF VISION....not sonar vision. :3 Conviction should just be its own franchise starring Sam Fisher and restart the SC series with a new agent. That'd be good....but will never happen :(
If Blacklist comes out on PS3, I'll most definitely be getting it. While it wasn't nearly the same game as the first three Splinter Cell games, it was still an incredibly good game. Thinking of it as something other than a SC game, it was the perfect blend of stealth, action, and story. Personally, I don't see why people dislike it so much. I played almost the entire game like a stealth game, and all they really did was take away the instant game over just because you didn't play it perfect. Aside from a few select parts, you can play nearly the entire game as a stealth game.
How about Splinter Cell: Easy Button?
I'm really loving how everyone disliked Conviction. Glad to know that I'm not the only one.
I must be the only one who didn't hate Conviction. It wasn't as good as the first 3 games, but it was leaps and bounds ahead of Double Agent. I wish they would bring back the 2v2 spies vs. mercs MP mode. I have no clue why they stopped.
I liked it, but it was no Splinter Cell game. Also, what was that bad with Double Agent? The SC gameplay was still there and the last gen versions were amazing, and the current gen version was still pretty good. I didn't care for the regen health but it was still a "true" SC title.
I don't think people hated Conviction. I think people are disappointed with the direction it is going. It's turning into a shooter. I still thought conviction was fun but not even close to being as good as the originals. Chaos Theory was simply amazing and Double Agent and Conviction left me scratching my head.. Why can't they be more like the first 3 games?
Splinter Cell: ConViction co-op was amazing. Now that mode was classic stealth.
I thought a few months ago that the game was going to be more like the originals. I could have sworn they interviewed the head person and they confirmed that? But if it is a sequel like this site claims then what a letdown. I'll try to find a link to the video, but I swear that's what I remember hearing.
So it'll be blocklist in the Uk, woot.
While UBISoft is using the same engin who's to say they won't bring back lockpicking,data hacking,dragging bodies,night vision & Spies vs Mercs. No one that's who. E3 is this Monday so don't judge a game we know nothing about.
Why ever since AC franchise the SC and R6V franchise went downhill? too much focus on $?
Yep. Although if they would make the SC more like chaos theory I'm sure it would make plenty of money too. But I guess they don't get that.
Ubi dropped some of their major franchises on the head because of AC. It's really disappointing as well. I had high hopes for conviction, but it was nothing more than a mediocre stealth game. Let's hope they prove me wrong and bring back traditional stealth in Blacklist
Making and selling half a game
stay with conviction ubisoft!! Those were trial and error games to the fullest. I do like the old games but it had way to much time wasters in them. Grabbing bodies took to long, random alarms after you passed an area 30 mins ago.
Hm, no thanks. If you wanna burn a hole in your brain for a quick fix; go play CoD.
I do play COD thanks but let me worry about what I want to play! And at the end of the day looks like ubi will be going my route
"And at the end of the day looks like ubi will be going my route" You don't even know what the game is yet.
It will be shown at Microsofts conference but will be coming out on the 360/PS3/Wii U/PC.
