The Splinter Cell franchise is one of the most beloved in the field of video games, which is why not so many months ago it was officially announced that the first game of the saga was going to be having a reimagination. And while development painted for this moment, it may be that things are delayed a bit due to something specific.
With this we mean that David Gravel , director of the game, has retired from Ubisoft recently. That information was clear from a publication of the LinkedIn network where Gravel itself comments that he is about to undertake a new adventure. It is worth mentioning that he was in the company of France approximately 11 years.
To give a context, Gravel worked at Ghost Recon Future Soldier in Ubisoft Paris Before moving to Toronto to work at Splinter Cell Blacklist, Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, 5 and 6 And, more recently, the next remake. Same as he now will be looking for a new director, this in order for the project not to suffer from a delay.
It is worth mentioning that this game came out as an initiative towards franchise fans, since the previous attempts to revive the saga as a cell phone launch did not finish fitting. Given that, they noticed that the remakes with something that the fans are affected, so in the end the decision was made to reimagination to the game that began everything.
For now, it has not been revealed for which platforms it will be launched.
Editor’s note: It is undoubtedly bad news for all those who expected the remake, but it is possible that in a few days the company’s new person will be put.
