The story of the previously announced remake of Splinter Cell is being rewritten for a “modern audience”.
This is apparent from a vacancy from developer Ubisoft Toronto. The company is looking for a scriptwriter who can update the game’s story for “a modern audience”.
The job posting continues: “We want to build the spirit and themes of the original game, while exploring our characters and the game world to make them more authentic and believable.”
Ubisoft announced last December that it is working on a remake of the 2002 stealth game Splinter Cell. At the time, it was reported that the game will run on Ubisoft’s Snowdrop Engine, in order to bring “new generation graphics and dynamic lighting and shadows” into the game.
The Splinter Cell series revolves around a black ops agent named Sam Fisher. He must stop terrorists and other villains in the Splinter Cell games. The last game in the series, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, was released in 2013.
Check out the video of the remake announcement below. It is unknown when the game will be released.
