5. New Splinter Cell Game Apparently in the Works While there were whispers of a new Splinter Cell game that would come eventually, we’ve now apparently got confirmation that the game is coming. Ubisoft’s creative director tweeted out that the’s “working on the next Splinter Cell” game. He followed that tweet up with another that said “Ok – plz don’t retweet. I may be in trouble.” Seems like maybe this wasn’t the place or time he was supposed to reveal a new Splinter Cell, but here we are.
