Ubisoft has confirmed that the upcoming Splinter Cell: Conviction will not be the last game in the series and that the next title may even feature a new player character.
Yeah, it's about time they replaced that old man ;)
I think Conviction may be Sam's swan song and you get a new hero going forward with a the franchise returning to being multiplatform.
Not surprised it's not the last one, however,..
BREAKING NEWS: Successful franchise to continue! It is intriguing that they might look into retiring Sam Fisher, though. Or maybe they're just saying this so that they can spark rumours he'll die at the end of the game.
Maybe Conviction will introduce a protege who will take over as the player character in the next game.
It may be true, older characters like Sam (and Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino) are known to sacrifice themselves for the greater good. This game would likely be a great send off for Sam if they chose to go that route. Just don't make the next Splinter Cell a whiny twentysomething or a Nolan North stereotype.
You just totally spoilt Gran Torino for me!! Not cool
I doubt it. They need the sequels The Fisher Supremacy and The Fisher Ultimatum.
Great franchises don't need to rely on one character! Good ones normally do but it shouldn't be the whole game!
or will it?
I kid. Great news. Sam Fisher is getting old but then again.. there's Snake haha.
not interested in playing as other characters.
How is it a bad idea ? Its like saying playing as other characters in the GTA universe would be a bad idea. Sam is a much loved character but sometimes a legend has to die , just like Snake. I'd like to see Sam take over TE and train Splinter Cell's and that's what I think the next game should be based on but I have a feeling Sam will sacrifice himself for his daughter.
Oh dear, if it's true, let's hope they don't go the DMC4 way by trying to introduce an annoying whiny emo-kid for the new player character. Hope it's more like Bishop replacing Chavez in Rainbow Six: Vegas 2.
It will be also coming to ps3 as SC:Sigma with added content and better graphics :)
Conviction: Sigma will be.
If they try to have some kind of epic send-off of the protagonist like in MGS4, I will laugh my ass off.
haha, yeah me too. Sam Fisher just doesn't have the history.
Who thanks M$ paid Ubi for 10 more Scell Xbox exclusives!
Ofcourse . Sam is the man .
Maybe Sam will have an apprentice of sorts. o.O
Going to miss Mr. Ironside's voice if Sam retires... :(
