It seems that the Splinter Cell saga is unable to take a break, as far as game development is concerned. Along with the delay of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, and “another unannounced AAA title”, it has also just been announced that Ubisoft cancels the development of four games, including a new Splinter Cell for VR devices. Also joining the cancellations is Ghost Recon: Frontline, a free-to-play battle royale that received a rather cold reception among users.
To these two titles is added the cancellation of two other extra games, of which we do not have much to tell, since they had not been announced yet. There are also no rumors about it that can suggest the identity of these two titles.
Ubisoft cancels the development of four games, including a new Splinter Cell
These two cancellations come together to the expected delay of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. Ubisoft has blamed these delays, cancellations and other changes to its calendar this year and next on “the fluctuations of the financial environment”, as announced in your last report to their investors.
Will Stray come to Xbox?
Despite the cancellation of Splinter Cell VR, Ubisoft plans to release a remake of Splinter Cell that will use the Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora engine. It remains to be seen if this will finally be the long-awaited return of Splinter Cell to the world of video games.
