Splinter Cell fans can expect "new types of experiences" and other devices, says Ubisoft.
Splinter Cell is not a franchise that Ubisoft has forgotten and is currently working on the brand to bring it back at some point.
That's what Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft, who shared this information with Gamersky (via Radar Games) in an interview said.
While Guillemot had already made similar comments, he told the site that the company would offer "new types of experiments" with the IP.
"On Splinter Cell, there will be new types of experiments, but more on different devices," he said. "We are working on the brand today to come back at some point. We can not say when, because it takes time, but we have to find, each time, the good experience to get back to the big picture. "
One of the new types of experiments could refer to the upcoming Oculus Rift in Splinter Cell.
In July, a report indicated that Facebook and Ubisoft had signed an exclusive virtual reality contract to allow Assassin's Creed and Oculus' Splinter Cell.
Neither Facebook nor Ubisoft offered confirmation of the report when they were contacted for comment.
It's been a long time since we received a new Splinter Cell title. The last entry, Blacklist, was published almost six years ago.
We did, however, have a glimpse of Sam Fisher when he made an appearance in Ghost Recon Wildlands last year.
