The Splinter Cell Remake, which was officially announced back in December of last year (wow, it’s been a while!) is still a ways off, seeing as Ubisoft Toronto is looking to hire a scriptwriter for the project. But what’s interesting about this job listing is that the developer wants to rework the original game’s story.
The job description reads: “Using the first Splinter Cell game as our foundation we are rewriting and updating the story for a modern-day audience. We want to keep the spirit and themes of the original game while exploring our characters and the world to make them more authentic and believable.”
Now, given that the original Splinter Cell released for the PS2 all the way back in 2002, it’s understandable that Ubisoft would want to make some adjustments to its storytelling. After all, expectations have changed dramatically over the last two decades, and the remake will have to modernise its direction and delivery.
It sounds like the studio is keen to expand on what’s already there, which could be interesting. And of course, all of this does basically confirm that the project is much more than a graphical overhaul — but we kind of assumed that would be the case anyway.
