Splinter cell: Blacklist is a sequel that has been long overdue, say fans
The fans agree that Ubisoft has not updated the Splinter Cell franchise in far too many years. They want a follow-up to Splinter Cell Blacklist.
It is reported that the next Splinter cell in-development project is a Photorealistic remake. While I am thrilled Ubisoft has finally given the series the attention they deserve, I believe I speak for most when I say more needs to happen.
The last original Sam Fisher game was Blacklist in 2013. Since then, this beloved series is all but dead. The only exceptions are a couple of lackluster spinoffs and Fisher’s appearances in Ubisoft titles like Ghost Recon or Rainbow Six Siege.
Reddit users have made it clear that they want this to be changed.
In a recent thread, blizzardmate stated: This game has been LONG due for a follow-up. The cover of Blacklist was also included.
It may not have been everyone’s favorite entry, as many prefer Splinter Cell: Chao Theory. However, the title was solid and showed what the current-gen Splinter Cell would look like. The fans agreed that it is time for the Splinter Cell series to be revived, either through a sequel or soft reboot, which will begin with the remake.
“Honestly, I would much prefer a soft restart. Blacklist could have been, but it wasn’t. “Still fun to play.”
Only if done in the style of chaos theory or double agents. “If it’s going to be like the previous game, I personally would not want a sequel.”
A full revival of the classic stealth gameplay with modern graphics and Michael Ironside in his legendary role as Sam Fisher would truly be a comeback to remember for the Splinter Cells series. It’s unclear if Ubisoft plans on doing more Splinter Cells games after the remake.
