Ubisoft Refiles Splinter Cell Trademark Amid Rumors of a New Entry

Folks over at The Game Post have spotted a new trademark application for Splinter Cell that was filed by Ubisoft just last week. This development comes amid rumors that a new entry has been greenlit and is in early phases of production.

Report of a new Splinter Cell first emerged in October following a series of disappointments for fans who saw Ubisoft attempt to bring the series back in mobile and virtual reality form. Although the developer declined to comment on the report, it was backed up by VentureBeat journalist and insider Jeff Grubb, who revealed that Ubisoft tested a “Splinter Cell-style” game in the weeks leading up to E3 2021. Then came the trusty Tom Henderson, who claimed to have heard from his sources that the upcoming Splinter Cell will be an open world game of sorts, and will be “a more stealthy version of Assassin’s Creed.”

While we have no official confirmation of anything, the trademark update does seem to suggest that Ubisoft’s up to something with Splinter Cell. We ask our readers to take all rumors and reports with a grain of salt, but if Ubisoft’s history is anything to go by, nearly all of the leaks pertaining to its games turn out to be true and this one doesn’t seem to be an exception.
