Ubisoft Creative Director Might Have Announced New Splinter Cell Game Too Soon

"It's a joke"

What a turn of events. Apparently, a new Splinter Cell just has been confirmed, possibly unintentionally too early.

Julian Gerigthy, Creative Director On The Division 2, tweeted that he’s working on the next Splinter Cell game with a tweet:

Given the happy faces and the glasses seen in the tweet, this might not be something he could say right now. The following tweet made it more evident:

Also, for a short period of time, Gerighty’s Twitter account was using Splinter Cell header and profile images, before switching back to The Division 2.

A subtle marketing ploy or an oopsie thanks to some good friends and drinks? It’s probably the latter. Ubisoft sent out a statement regarding this matter to Game Informer, saying it’s not true. Here it is in full:

“Julian was obviously joking as Julian likes to do, It looks like our creative directors are having fun right now. We do not have any announcements to make at this time.”

It was 2013 when we last got our last full Splinter Cell game, Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Though last year, through Ghost Recon Wildlands, the stealth game’s protagonist Sam Fisher appeared in a crossover event, with longtime voice-actor Micheal Ironside reprising his role. Given that there are not that many stealth games out there right now- it’s the best time for Splinter Cell to come back.

Should the tweet be true, that is. It’s just a joke. Is it? We’ll find out at E3 soon enough.
