Fans are ravenous to consume anything Splinter Cell related, to the point where Sam Fisher's appearance in Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Breakpoint got fans excited back in 2018 and 2020 respectively. Just not in the way you'd expect (or want) it to return. Sam Fisher, who was a special officer in the US Navy, was admitted to the mysterious unit called Third Echelon, and we had a lot of different enemies and a lot of conspiracy theories.
According to Variety, Netflix has already ordered two 16-episode seasons, and Derek Kolstad, director of the John Wick franchise, will write the screenplay and serve as executive producer, but these details have yet to be confirmed by the streaming platform. It made its debut in 2002.
But there is some light at the end of the tunnel as today we learned that an animated Splinter Cell series is coming to Netflix. Although its last release was in 2013 and has now become overshadowed by popular titles such as Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege (which even has its own e-sports following), the original Splinter Cell is still remembered fondly by many players. Of course, that never happened.
The reveal of the anime will likely fire up the rumor mill once more about a new game.
There's now no date set for the Splinter Cell animated Netflix show, but keep it locked to Dexerto for more news as it breaks. There was a brief mention of a new title previous year, but there hasn't been an official announcement from Ubisoft. It's set for an August 27 release date on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. It seems like it's probably very early in the series' development. But every year we are disappointed.
