New Splinter Cell Plans?

A new mainline Splinter Cell game is in development, according to an unconfirmed report on VGC. This revelation is attributed to "development sources" who say this will be an effort to win back fans turned off by mobile and VR installments in the stealthy action series. VGC says it's not clear which Ubisoft studios are working on this, but longtime Splinter Cell studio Ubisoft Montreal may not be involved according to "two people with knowledge of Ubisoft’s plans." The game is reportedly in early production, and an announcement may come next year. VGC says Ubisoft has so far declined to comment on this rumor.
