This is still very much a rumour at the moment, so take it with a pinch of salt, but the trustworthily named SarcasticGamer
is currently running the story that Sam Fisher will not be voiced by Michael Ironside in the next Splinter Cell
Which would make sense.
The last anybody really saw of the latest game in the series, Splinter Cell: Conviction
, was at Ubidays 2007
and since then the game has been strangely absent from the public eye. True, the next title in the Clancy franchise might have just gone undercover - but the word is that the game has been completely redesigned after some design problems.
We got a chance to see Conviction
the last time it was on show and the game was definitely looking a rough round the edges, but more troubling was the suspicion that the game had lost it's way and was no longer a real Splinter Cell
game. It was a lot more daylight and eyeliner than shadows and nightvision.
Which is why it makes sense that the game may be getting a total re-imagining, as Ubi has decided to do with both the Far Cry 2
and Prince of Persia
The question is - is Ironside is being cast out, then who should replace him? Quincy? Let us know your ideas in the forums
