Microsoft took the lid off of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist during its E3 presentation, with Alex Parizeau and Maxime Beland of Ubisoft showing off the next installment in the stealth/action series. They show Sam's enhanced command role in the next game and some of its international plotline. The command functions made use of Kinect, and a PC version of the game is not confirmed at this point. In conclusion they say: "Splinter Cell: Blacklist is the most ambitious Splinter Cell yet. It features compelling single-player, co-op, and of course, spy versus mercs. Shipping spring 2013."
