A cryptic image and accompanying announcement have appeared on Splinter Cell’s Facebok page in relation to the upcoming game, Splinter Cell: Blacklist. The image appears to be of Sam Fisher – the game’s protagonist – or Solid Snake performing a Sam Fisher cosplay. The only information provided with the image is that Ubisoft and the game’s developers are planning, “to make a big announcement…” Fans of the page were then encouraged to share and like the image to reveal more. A timetable of when more of the image would be released was not given.
Discussions and debates on the page have swirled around the possibilities of an announcement of a Wii U version, Cooperative/multiplayer gameplay, or even a PS Vita version. The majority of the posts were from fans of the series who want veteran voice-actor, Michael Ironside, to return to the series in a capacity of more than just an advisory role.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist will be released for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 presumably in March of 2013.
