Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell has been greenlit for a remake, said Ubisoft in a blog post via their website.

The development will be headed by Ubisoft Toronto and the team plans to rebuild the game from the ground up on the Snowdrop engine.

Before 2021, there was little to no news on the series, besides Ubisoft announcing a VR version last year.

The team's technical producer, Peter Handrinos, said, "We want to bring them something new, yet still connect them to that feeling that they had two decades ago, playing that masterpiece for the first time."

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell originally released back in 2002 for the Xbox, PC, PlayStation 2, GameCube and Game Boy Advance.

The first game eventually spanned a series of games which would then release from 2003 to 2013.

Matt West, the game's producer, said, "Although we're still in the very earliest stages of development, what we're trying to do is make sure the spirit of the early games remains intact, in all of the ways that gave early Splinter Cell its identity."

Ubisoft Toronto urges fans of the game intrigued by the project to apply to join the team at their jobs website.

On this, Handrinos said, "We want to invite anyone who’s intrigued by what we’ve said to apply to join Ubisoft Toronto. We’re building a new team, the same way we did when we started the studio."
