The Next Splinter Cell Game is… Blacklist?
Ubisoft’s popular third person stealth action game has been around for quite awhile. The recent Splinter Cell: Conviction may have taken the series into a bad turn according to many fans from the beginning, but I quite liked the faster pace of the game.
Today, rumors are swirling around the net that a new Splinter Cell title is/has been in the works and it is named Blacklist. Not giving anything away from Conviction, but Sam is in a bad spot yet again so I’d assume that this is a sequel to Conviction. According to a Neogaf user, the rumor is true and Sam will be back and making an appearance at E3:
The title says everything. I’ve seen the promo and Sam is looking good as always with no grey hair (you will see why ? below), full body suit, and his mighty night goggles, including a serious look on his face.
The reference to the surprise is, the game is programmed to be shown at E3. But don’t be so surprised because from the atmosphere given in the promo it looks like is the next sequel of Conviction (and we already know how the previous game was/is), as the new title Blacklist and plot will be based on his enemies tagged as Blacklist; makes sense, no ?. Although I like the new look, so I give a little hope to see a big improvement, back to the old school OR NOT.
So here it is, the new name of Splinter Cell: Blacklist coming with a Limited Edition ready for pre-order.
Count me in on this one. I’m inclined to believe the rumor and it also gave me another game I’m most looking forward to seeing at E3
