Splinter Cell remake teaser dropped by Ubisoft

Splinter Cell remake teaser dropped by Ubisoft

Ubisoft has shared several pieces of concept art from the Splinter Cell remake, as well as some new details about the game's development.

The world is very excited for the Splinter Cell remake. Ubisoft confirmed late last year that the title is being built from the ground up using the Snowdrop engine (the same one being used for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora).

Until now, details about the game have been few and far between - it was recently revealed that the remake’s story will be updated to suit “a modern-day audience”, as well as to explore the “characters and the world to make them more authentic and believable”.

Also coming soon from Ubisoft is Assassin's Creed Mirage - take a look below.

Now though, as reported by GamesRadar+, Ubisoft has released a video celebrating the series’ 20th anniversary, in which details and new concept art for the remake were shared - giving us our first glimpse at what the game will look like. Take a look for yourself below.

Speaking in the video, creative director Chris Auty said: “It’s not simply a remaster, it’s being built from the ground up. We get to do all the content from scratch, fresh and ready to go.”

Zavian Porter, associate level design director, added: “We’re aiming to create this top-tier remake and push quality as much as possible. This should help us set a good foundation for the franchise going forward.”

The devs discussed the fact that they have the opportunity to make improvements to plot and character elements that “might not have aged particularly well”, but “the core of the story, the core of the experience, will remain as it was in the original game”, which ties into what we knew before about the potential story updates.

Auty clarified that the game is still early in production and they’re still prototyping the title because the team wants to make sure that they “absolutely nail the game” and produce a “stellar-quality experience”.

He also added that the team will be “going dark for a little while so we can focus on making the absolute best game possible”, so don’t worry if it’s a long time before we get any more updates. With that in mind, it sounds like we probably can’t expect a trailer for some time, either, but it seems that everything is coming together very well so far.
