The announcement of a new Splinter Cell game has generated the most buzz from gamers. Fans have been asking for a new entree in the series for sometime. The last main title, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist, was released in 2013. Since then, Sam Fisher has only made an appearance in other Tom Clancy games like Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

At the moment, there is no release date for either game. More information about them will be made available in the future.
