Ubisoft is hiring for a scriptwriter for its Splinter Cell Remake, and it looks like the narrative will be revamped for a modern audience.
Anytime the word "modern" is used it's a huge red flag that it'll suck hard.
Modern means "the message". What a disappointment.
Yes, Sam will now be transgender to appeal to woke, spineless dorks, none of which would've bought the game in the first place.
Okay, the slightest whiff of wokery and I'm not even touching it secondhand. I'm just so fed up with these companies trying to force an agenda and steer mindsets. If they do it a second time they'll lose my future purchases too. We have to vote with our wallets, because our opinions are being censored - how else will we let them know this is not the direction we want?
I wonder what word they would use to describe me since I was around when the first one made. "legacy"? "aging"? "crusty"? Probably something even worse lol Well, I have money and still buy games from time to time, so we'll see if I'm not modern enough for the new game lol
Incapable of accepting people for what they are? That seems to be the assumption, and we need to be re-educated.
Same. I loved the original Splinter Cell and I’m not dead yet.
It will be woke watch lol!!!
agreed, this has me nervous as hell now, they will probably make Sam into Samantha, so a woman who is gay... or a transgender with pink hair... look i don't have an issue with any of the above but i do not want my favorite games and characters ruined for a bunch of modern kids who don't give a crap about the said game in the first place... so tired of this bs in the games industry at the moment. stick to the dam roots of the game and improve the things that matter like ai, sound design, lighting, game play etc and appreciate your loyal fans
Here is the thing when they say modern for a new generation, they are also talking about pleasing their shareholders with today's nonsense. That's why Disney shows and movies are like that now. An that is one major example.
It's so weird how anything that's rewritten now has an automatic connotation of driving some political agenda. I mean, as soon as I saw this I immediately thought "oh god"
All they really needed to do was remake the original with refreshed graphics. Anything else is unnecessary and likely to ruin it.
@RickRoland Splinter Cell will be a Remake ... in same vain as other high quality remakes. Remember, Ubisoft's gameplay department might be crap but their tech department(s) at Montreal & Massive are one of the best in the industry. They are always bringing something new using their proprietary engines. So this remake (on paper) should be a much easier job for them.
I'm looking forward to it, hopefully gameplay is closer to the originals and not the last one.
Just what the fans wanted… Ubisoft you knuckleheads, I swear!
And if they go to far and it flops they’ll blame toxic fans vowing they are putting the series on hold
"Modern audiences" They make it sound as if the 2000s were centuries ago! Someone should tell Ubisoft that the people that would most likely be buying this remake are the same exact ancient people that played the original when it was released. I say would because I'm sensing that Ubisoft will pull a Disney and do with this IP what Disney has done to the remakes of their classic animated movies.
Yep. Audience tastes have not changed that much. But the tastes the devs WANT you to have, have changed. It stopped being about making what audiences want.
So no Combayn Nikoladze, no Russians, no Chinese... They re gonna fuck it up
So then a Politically Correct remake? wonderful…….
Worked out great for saints row reboot...SMH.
Oh nooooooo not Sam too! Is nothing sacred anymore dammit!?
Everytime they use the word ''Modern'' you know it's gonna be trash. Keep it ORIGINAL!
sam fisher with purple hair , no thank you.
Should just leave it as is, but with a new modern game engine.
So it's not actually a remake then...
A bit early to be crying about woke politics when nothing has been announced, isn't it?
I can't see how woke politics would fit into a splinter cell game so I'm ngl I'm confused. If uts ti gel with modern day threats nations face then Russia and China arr the obvious antagonists but they were in the original anyway? Weren't they? In a funny way we have had a reset psst couple of years to a situation where we face a threat involving moat of the former Soviet union and Chinese communist territories and those that were allied to them almost as if the past 30 years didn't happen.
Many comments marked as "spam" that just expressed how we expect "original" to mean "very much woke"
Curious. I would love a Splinter Cell reboot, but the phrase "updating the story for a modern-day audience" makes me nervous. Is this an indicator that it will be woke garbage?! I certainly hope not.
Are we getting woke Sam Fisher?
Modern audience? What the hell does that even mean? It's not like the game was based 100 years ago. I guarantee this is going to be awful.
Uh-oh that's a red flag right there. Any time you here the word "modern" in any type of entertainment medium nowadays should be cause for concern.
He’ll be non binary.
Will it be a liveservice SP game?
This never ends well. Samantha Fisher new lead I bet. Jk
Haha yeah I said exactly this at the top of this thread, but you can't see it now as it was marked as 'Spam'.
Thanks, but no thanks...No buy for me...
Well... I hope it fails like Saints Woke.
So sunshines, rainbows, censorship and wokeness? I can go on lol.
Assassins Creed: Splinter Cell
Means it's going to be terrible...
Let me guess, Sam will now be able to “go live” in his visor and upload his kills to IG for likes?
Instead of a reboot, should have done a prequel taking place in the late 80s and Early 90s with some low-fi tech and grit, and a younger Sam. Would've been nice.
I mean, it was already a pretty modern game tbh. Not much about them feel dated other than the graphics.
Storyline for new Splinter Cell Game: An African American, who now uses the code name Sam Fisher in place of his retired mentor, is called upon to infiltrate a facility and neutralize a threat. The antagonist in this story is a white nationalist organization known as the Proud Boys who have taken hostages in the Catholic Hospital for LGBTQIA+ children. Latisha Jones, Fishers informant and head of the local feminist movement, has been very helpful and serves as his handler while he takes this undercover case. Will Sam be able to rescue the children in time? Stay Tuned folks... Release Date: June 2023
Great, Sam will be a transgender woman who is gay with multicolored hair and with BLM and Biden tattooed on their back. Somehow the dialogue will relate to slavery, identity crisis, and trump. They will find a way to insert useless pronouns and force in some type of feminist point of view. Way to ruin a franchise if so. However, they dont add all the useless crap and just write a decent story, im rooting for them.
