Open World Splinter Cell in the Works?

The latest rumor being mongered by Tom Henderson comes in this tweet from the elite tipster. Tom says the next installment in the Splinter Cell series is currently in "early development." Word is the game is keeping the stealth, but will be more of an open world experience. Bearing in mind this is unconfirmed, here's the post:
Ubisoft's Splinter Cell game that is in early development is currently scoped as a... You guessed it... Open World of sorts.

"A more stealthy version of Assassin's Creed"

"Similar to how Halo Infinite has done its Open World"

Marketing pitch: "Imagine Assassins Creed, but with stealth."
If Russia stops fighting, the war ends. If Ukraine stops fighting, Ukraine ends. Slava Ukraini!

Eh, I could get behind this. Depends how "open world" it is though.

I hated how in the Just Cause series, you had to unlock the other regions on the map or you'd be insta-killed if you travelled to an unlocked region.

If they do it like Ghost Recon Wildlands, I could see how that could be fun.

Alternately, if it's like Sniper Elite 4, I would be bummed as that's not really open world, just big mission areas.

Unless Ubisoft somehow manages to hire Kojima to do the whole game design and story design there would be nothing even remotely as cool as MGS 5 in any Splinter Cell title though The far greater likelihood is that it will be Assassins Creed, but Splinter Cell.... which would be the opposite of cool imo.

Eh. A quasi-futuristic open world stealth shooter? I'd play it. Not as much of a fan of the eras in the assassins creed games, personally.

So the big problem has been all of Ubi's games with exception to the Division have REALLY shitty AIi (Even the AI is fucking oblivious until you start a fight then they get creative).
So to combat stupid AI and bad AI routines they make the AI damage sponges, and the only game to NOT do that is the Ghost Recon Breakpoint (where ya remove the gear scores), but you can have a fucking pile of bodies being head shotted from 400 meters away and they just do fuck all about it except go on yellow alert.

So unless you have AI in a splinter cell game checking in every minute and roaming around in random patterns across the map in teams of at least 2 then it's just gonna be another Ubi game with Splinter Cell paint on it.

I haven't said it in a long while but it applies here: I threw up in my mouth a little.

Absolutely nobody is asking for an open world splinter cell. Semi or otherwise.
