With the announcement of Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Ubisoft puts Sam back in the spec ops suit, and CGM played the game and talked with Maxime Beland, Creative Director of the upcoming sequel.
There is no Sam Fisher without M. Ironside doing the voice work, it is like asking Halo fans to accept masterchief in Halo 4 without the actor that has done masterchiefs voice since the beginning. It would be a different story if the voice actor had passed away in real life, but that is not the case here. They just didn't want to pay him, they pulled this crap on Conviction until the outrage from the fans proved to much, but doesn't seem like the case here.
So, to me this franchise is dead, I will vote with my dollars and not support this game. No Ironside no dollars.
