Splinter Cell: Blacklist, which Ubisoft debuted today at the Microsoft E3 media briefing, takes place six months after Splinter Cell: Conviction. Rogue nations around the world band together and attempt to threaten the United States. Following this, Sam Fisher is called in to deal with the situation. Take a look at the footage below:



Splinter Cell: Blacklist will be released sometime during Spring 2013.

    I’m really gonna miss Michael Ironside.

    Oh, I forgot about this title, I’m also looking forward to this…

    Well, sort of. I was really hoping for a return to the stealth-like gameplay of the Splinter Cell titles before Conviction. 

    I guess it’s still possible since this is likely just one stage in the game.

    Yeah, thinking about it now, the daylight stages in these games have always sort of been like this. I just really hope we have nighttime stages too.

       Well at least spies v mercs return so we get half a return to form but with this type of plot I’m not sure if stealth like previous games would work.

    When I think of Splinter Cell, I remember Bob and Steve

    • Luna Kazemaru

      Lol I missed them.

    THE TERRORISTS in THE MIDDLE EAST AND OTHER ROGUE NATIONS are threatening the United States! They have created THE BLACKLIST to THREATEN THE PRESIDENT and THE FREE WORLD OF AMERICA! Are you a bad enough stealth operative to SAVE THE WORLD!?

    Don’t get me wrong, it looks pretty good and seems like it could be fun, but the plot is making my eyes roll right out of their sockets.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      It possibly could be an homage to Bad Dudes, or there are only just so many ways one can describe being bad enough to save the President and the free world from them nasty terrorists.

    I don’t like the idea of Splinter Cell turning to a war based game. It used to be all about stealth and missions and now its all convictions and all out shooting.

    And now his voice is even being replaced D; I’m just grateful Sam is still the main character. 

    I’m certainly excited for this game but its a shame there’s so many changes from the originals. I really hope there’s some nighttime stealth playthroughs, I’d hate for this game to turn into Call of Duty… 

  • This is great news. A new Splinter Cell game is always welcome in my books and the fact that it still stars Sam Fisher is even better. That series got me started into the world of Tom Clancy (mainly the novels) and I’ve loved it ever since.

    The gameplay on display here in specific was pretty cool. Sure, I too miss the very stealth oriented focus of the first 3 games, but this also looks like it will be a ton of fun. Cannot wait to see more of it in action.

    I pray to God that this isn’t another 360 exclusive Splinter Cell. It’s looking damn great though. I do miss the greater focus on stealth, but at least Ubi’s managed to not drown it out in all the action.

    • neocatzon

      your pray has been answered. Look at the top of the post, it’s for PS3, 360 and PC

      • Solomon_Kano

        Ah. Hope they got that right. If so, then I just got that much more excited about this game’s release.

  • Closet_Ninja

    I don’t know if I should be really excited or very disappointed. I liked Conviction a lot but i was hoping of a more stealthy Conviction for this “Black List” well =/ how perplexed that i am 

  • I never played any Splinter Cell before but this one looks amazing. I love the fast paced killing and movement.
