Great. Now make another Splinter Cell GAME!!

JayRyu1219d ago

Agreed! I hope this means there's another game in the works.

blacktiger1219d ago

like at least in development right,

RaveTears1219d ago

I don't know. Ubisoft will somehow make Splinter Cell for a live service.

JayRyu1219d ago

No, please no! Not that.

Chocoburger1219d ago

(*sigh*) That's the problem, indeed.
I want more stealth action games, since Metal Gear series is now dead. But a modern Ubisoft game? Blech!

- EXP Grinding
- Skill point grinding
- Resources for upgrades grinding
- Open world that's absolutely massive and boring to traverse, even with fast travel
- Endless menial side quests that serve no real purpose other than padding / filler to prevent you from trading in the game (if bought on disc) and increase chances to enter the micro-trash-action store
- Paid upgrades in the micro-trash-action store
- 10 different editions to pre-order, and digital pre-order bonuses based on which store you pre-order from

I'm sick of all this Ubisoft shit. I want an Ubisoft 2005-era Splinter Cell game, not an Ubisoft 2020-era Splinter Cell game.

The more we shout for Spilinter cell the more unwanted Assassin Creed we get .
Lets us all ask for more assassin Creed we might actually get a splinter cell instead..

Sophisticated_Chap1219d ago

Why is it so hard for Ubisoft to make another Splinter Cell game? Enough with cameo apperances and nonsense like animated series.

victorMaje1219d ago

It’s not hard, they just haven’t figured out how to implement an MT store for it yet...

My guess would be Serge Hascoët, Chief Creation Officer, who was recently stood down over the whole Ubisoft investigation shot it down.

Journalists and Ubi employees have are saying he was the head shot caller on what does and doesn't get made. He was the main reason behind the Ubisoft 'formula'. More recently Mark Laidlaw came out and said that it's basically what happened with his King Arthur game.

HOW ABOUT A NEW GAME? If there's enough interest in the IP to do cameos and a Netflix show, then there's obviously enough interest for a new game.

Hakuoro1219d ago

You have to hand it to Netflix they have a lockdown on video game shows. It's weird to see the reversal it used to be movies and TV got games now games get movies and TV shows. It really reflects the change in culture where games have become the more popular media.

TheOptimist1219d ago

Fans: We want a game
Ubi: Can't hear you over the millions we are making through idiots.

Double_O_Revan1219d ago

This. They haven't made a new game because they haven't figured out how to monetize it enough.

"The profit of these tournaments is directly impacted by these new rules, as sponsorships are being forbidden, maximum prize money is limited to $5,000, and food/drinks can’t be sold at the tournaments."

Why even bother.

1 thing I've realized over the years is that Nintendo likes bragging about "fun", but it's "fun" how they see fit, and they often go against their consumers for the dumbest reasons. Just gonna do this stuff underground style, who are Nintendo to stop anyone from organizing community based tournaments anyway? How does this actually hurt em?

They've always wanted smash to be seen as a fun, casual game and nothing remotely competitive, which is in stark contrast with how Sakurai develops smash. He puts in so many little things to master for high level competitors. It's just sad, especially for the melee community. They kept the community going for 2 decades now even while all the time nintendo was trying to sabotage them.

I hope those (selectively) against acquisition of studios are now satisfied.
