Splinter Cell Remake Will Feature A Rewritten Story For “Modern” Audiences

The upcoming Splinter Cell remake will feature a rewritten story, as Ubisoft looks to update the game and make it more relevant to a “modern audience.”

In a job listing that was spotted by PSU, Ubisoft is looking to hire a screenwriter who can faithfully update the original game’s story. “Using the first Splinter Cell game as a foundation, we’re rewriting and updating the story for a modern audience,” the ad reads. “We want to keep the spirit and themes of the original game while exploring our characters and world to make them more authentic and believable.”

Ubisoft says the applicant who lands the screenwriting job will need to work with the narrative team at Ubisoft Toronto to create a “cohesive and compelling” narrative experience for a “new audience” of Splinter Cell fans. The original Splinter Cell was first released in 2002, a very different and turbulent time that introduced radical technologies and Nickleback’s unbridled reign over the charts with “How You Remind Me” for far too long. Truly a terrible time for the world.

Sam Fisher’s first video game adventure saw the NSA black ops agent work to prevent a global crisis from unfolding and was released as a timed Xbox exclusive. Ubisoft officially announced the new version of Splinter Cell in December of last year and confirmed that the new version will be built from the ground up using the studio’s Snowdrop engine. Ubisoft Toronto, which developed the well-received Splinter Cell: Blacklist, plans to stick to the original game’s linear narrative structure, while emphasizing exploration and innovation as core pillars of the game.

While the game is still a long way from release, we have some ideas about what we want to see from the finished Splinter Cell product.
