For years now nothing has been known about Splinter Cell, Ubisoft's popular tactical shooter series. Way back in April 2019, the CEO of the company had explained that he had decided to stop developing new chapters because of the pressure generated by expectations, and that the franchise would eventually return in a new guise. It is not clear if even then we were thinking of a television adaptation, but very curious rumors have come to us: Netflix and Ubisoft would now be collaborating to make an anime on Splinter Cell.

The news comes from an article by Variety, according to which this phantom project is real. To write the script we find Derek Kolstad, known for working on the John Wick franchise. According to sources not mentioned, the series will have two seasons of 8 episodes, thus assuming a model different from traditional Japanese canons. No details on the correlation between anime and video game, so we can't know which plot the adaptation will follow. We remain at this point pending an official confirmation from Netflix or Ubisoft.
