Since Splinter Cell Remake was announced at the end of last year, very little else has been said about it. Now fans are wondering how much progress the game is making and whether the project could be in jeopardy after the Splinter Cell Remake Director, David Grivel, announced that he leaves Ubisoft “to go on a new adventure“.
The future of Splinter Cell Remake after the director leaves
Splinter Cell Remake was originally pitched as rebuilding the game from the ground up within the Snowdrop engine. Gameplay would also be brought into the modern era so that it can “match player comfort and expectations.” Just a month ago, a job listing suggested the game was still in the very early stages of development as they were recruiting a scriptwriter to rewrite and update the story for modern audiences. While the latest update that the game’s director has left Ubisoft is not the most positive news, the departure should not make too much of an impact on the remake’s development at this stage.
The Splinter Cell Remake director leaves Ubisoft after 11 years at the publisher according to his LinkedIn post (thanks VGC). Grivel’s history also includes work on Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 5, Far Cry 6, and Ghost Recon Future Soldier. He’s yet to reveal what the future holds for him, but has told everyone to “stay tuned”.
