New Splinter Cell game planned for next-gen consoles, 'Sam will be back'

Ubisoft has plans to bring the Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell series and hero Sam Fischer to next generation consoles, according to Splinter Cell: Blacklist art director Scott Lee.

Speaking in a recent interview with Arabic Gamers, Lee said plans for a next-gen Splinter Cell are already in motion as Ubisoft remains heavily invested in the series.

"Sam Fisher and Splinter Cell [are] a big and very important franchise for Ubisoft, and yes they do support the franchise," Lee said. "Obviously we're working very hard on current-gen systems and we're super excited that we're going to be across all platforms.

"For next-gen there are a lot of plans in the works, obviously we can't talk about that at the moment but I definitely look forward to seeing Sam in new adventures, bigger and better as we go along," he added. "Sam will be back."

In March, Ubisoft's Jade Raymond told Polygon Ubisoft Toronto has five unannounced titles in the works, including the next Assassin's Creed game as part of a collaboration with Ubisoft Montreal and another within the Splinter Cell franchise.

The latest title in the franchise, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, will launch on Aug. 20 in North America and Aug. 23 in Europe for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Windows PC and Wii U.
