The Splinter Cell Remake will be rewritten to better suit a “modern audience”.
“Using the first Splinter Cell game as our foundation, we are rewriting and updating the story for a modern-day audience,” it wrote. “We wanted to keep the spirit and theme of the original game while exploring our characters and the world to make them more authentic and believable.”
Splinter Cell was originally released in 2002 and featured Sam Fisher – an NSA black police agent who was investigating the disappearance of two CIA officers. As the story unfolds, Sam finds himself in the midst of a political conspiracy as the world stands on the brink of all-out war. Sam uses his invisibility to prevent a global crisis.
Now, it looks like that crisis will take on a more modern twist, although it’s unclear exactly what form it will take.
“As a Scriptwriter at Ubisoft Toronto, you will join the Narrative team and help create a cohesive and engaging narrative experience for a new audience of Splinter Cell fans,” reads the listing.
There have been very few revelations about the project since the remake was announced last year.
Initial review of IGN’s Splinter Cell gave it a score of 9.4/10 and said: “Incredibly polished quality, eye-catching presentation and development, functional nature of things, satisfying gameplay focused on deconstructed situations logically needs to be dealt with with a keen eye and common sense and the multitude of styles, fanfare and fun that come with it, make the Splinter Cell a valid and worthwhile addition to the set. Collection of every patient, smart gamer. “
