Splinter Cell Remake aims to be very faithful to the original and therefore to keep the whole infiltration aspect fairly unchanged since that’s what made the salt of the game. Last December, Ubisoft had thus declared:
Although we are still in the very early stages of development, what we are trying to do is to ensure that the spirit of the early games remains intact, and retain the Splinter Cell identity. We’re going to keep it linear like the original games, not make it open world.
Unfortunately, the project is currently going through a bad patch with the departure of one of its eminent members.
Splinter Cell Remake loses its thinking head.
We can therefore learn that David Grivel, the director of the next remake of Splinter Cell, has left Ubisoft after 11 years of loyal service. Grivel worked on Ghost Recon Future Soldier at Ubisoft Paris before moving to Ubisoft Toronto to work on SC Blacklist, Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, 5 and 6 and most recently the upcoming SC remake He therefore had the opportunity to touch on many big Ubisoft games from the last few years.
We don’t yet know what impact his departure will have on the development of the Splinter Cell remake, but generally it’s never very good when a Game Director is concerned. Hopefully the game doesn’t suffer too much of a lag internally.
For the record, the story of the undercover title centers on the protagonist Sam Fisher, a covert ops agent for the secret branch of the United States National Security Agency.
