While fans of the long-running Splinter Cell series would definitely love to see the official confirmation that Ubisoft is working on a new game with Sam Fisher, it looks like the French publisher just casually shut down any rumors about the immediate return of Splinter Cell. As a reminder, Ubisoft said last Friday that a never-before-seen Tom Clancy's game would be showcased for the first time on May 9th.
The Ghost Recon team just shared a brand new post on Twitter, announcing that this mysterious Tom Clancy's is, as expected, a Ghost Recon project – and given that the series’ logo that debuted in 2017's Ghost Recon: Wildlands is back, it rather safe to say that we're looking at a sequel to that title.
The fact that Ubisoft still doesn't have its own battle royale title suggests that the yet-to-be-announced sequel could potentially feature a PUBG-like game mode, maybe even with heroes from other Tom Clancy's games returning to play a role in the battlefield – but it's just a guessing game at this point.
The reveal of the next Tom Clancy's video game will take place on Thursday, May 9th, at 11:30 PDT.
The Santa Blanca drug cartel has transformed the beautiful South American country of Bolivia into a perilous narco-state, leading to lawlessness, fear, and rampant violence. The citizens of Bolivia have been plagued by the criminal influence of the cartel, but all hope is not lost. Now only the Ghosts, an elite US Special Forces team, can save the country from complete collapse.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC NOW!
