A reliable insider has launched a new rumor regarding the Splinter Cell series. There was not much information about the new game for a long time, but the insider assures that a new Splinter Cell title is in early development, and it will be an open-world game.
New Splinter Cell Is In Early Development and Will Be Open World
According to the insider, Tom Henderson, the developers have made the choice that the new Splinter Cell will be an open-world game and the title is in its early stages of development.
More specifically, the insider is talking about something “similar to how Halo Infinite has done its Open World” and more generally a stealthier version of Assassin’s Creed. Recall that the words of Jeff Grubb were in the same direction, as his sources spoke about a hint of Hitman in its management of freedom of action.
Ubisoft's Splinter Cell game that is in early development is currently scoped as a… You guessed it… Open World of sorts.

At the moment, there are no other details provided for the new Splinter Cell game, nor there is any confirmation given by the publishers themselves. However, Henderson’s words can be taken with less suspicion than other insiders, because he has made a name for himself and can be considered as a reliable source in recent years.
In addition, it is worth mentioning that the rumors about a new part of the Splinter Cell game have been circulating since 2018 but we have not got any specific details about it.
The sixth and final part of the series, subtitled Blacklist, was released back in 2013, after which the development of Splinter Cell was reduced to collaborations with other Ubisoft games. The Oculus VR headset spin-off is also currently being prepared for release by Red Storm Entertainment in partnership with Facebook.
