The remake of classic stealth ‘em up Splinter Cell will be rewritten and updated for a “modern-day audience”, according to a job posting for the project.
Ubisoft Toronto are looking for a scriptwriter for the new Splinter Cell, which they say uses the original as a “foundation” and aims at a “new audience of Splinter Cell fans”.
I hate to break it to you Ubisoft, but I’m not certain that the kids dig Tom Clancy military espionage hijinks. The scriptwriter job posting was spotted by PSU. “Using the first Splinter Cell game as our foundation we are rewriting and updating the story for a modern-day audience,” the ad reads. “We want to keep the spirit and themes of the original game while exploring our characters and the world to make them more authentic and believable.” I just hope Sam Fisher interrupts his missions to check BookTok every now and then.
