Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 2018 Listed on Amazon
A listing for Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 2018 has popped up over on Amazon’s Canadian website, although the product is listed as “currently available” and has no information on the release date or platforms.
Those of you who follow gaming rumors on the reg know very well that Amazon listings can often lead to disappointment, but they also frequently leak real games.
People are excited because we haven’t seen a new Splinter Cell game in a long time. The last Splinter Cell was Blacklist, which launched in 2013. Since then, Sam Fisher has retreated into the shadows, not to be seen or heard from. It’s strange, considering fans’ love for Splinter Cell as Ubisoft’s flagship stealth action series.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot assured us after last year’s E3 that he hasn’t forgot about Splinter Cell.
Back in 2016, it was reported that Michael Ironside, the actor who portrays Sam Fisher, was at Ubisoft and confirmed he was working on the next Splinter Cell game. Then at last year’s E3, Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat hinted that the company was open to reviving Splinter Cell and working with the dormant franchise again.

At E3 2017, Ubisoft Montreal’s CEO Yannis Mallat teased a Splinter Cell revival in the near future, while reports as far back as 2016 suggested Michael Ironside – Sam Fisher’s voice actor – was back at Ubisoft to work on an undisclosed project.
The last Splinter Cell game was 2013’s Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist, which released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC at the tail end of that generation’s lifespan. That means a new Splinter Cell would mark the first time the franchise hits the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and it’ll be interesting to see how Ubisoft drags Sam Fisher into the new generation for a more modern stealth-action experience.
That said, the only platform specified by Amazon was PC, so a console version remains unconfirmed for now, though the likelihood is high, with even a Switch port seeming somewhat plausible given the publisher’s close working relationship with Nintendo.
Ubisoft has also implied that a new Assassin’s Creed game won’t be out this year, so a Splinter Cell sequel would be the ideal title to fill that gap, making a Fall release date all the more probable. If that listing is to be believed, the return of Sam Fisher is only a few more months away…
