E3 Speculation: Splinter Cell's grand return

June 08, 2018 1 min read

Picture this: Ubisoft’s E3 2018 presentation is cruising along with few surprises. Games are shown we already know to exist and some celebrity personality is making tired jokes. We all laugh, mostly out of respect, but pine for the days when Aisha Tyler was towering over everyone. Just Dance gets a “reveal” for the god damned Wii and the Rabbids make an appearance to act all wild and zany.

Suddenly, the arena goes dark and the floor draws silent. We hear a low rumbling of thunder and the clash of some water onto a beach. Rain starts to hit the ground and a man’s grunting grows louder as a shadowy figure emerges from the edge of a rock face. The camera pans to reveal the iconic tri-focal goggles Splinter Cell made famous before the man shifts them over his eyes and that familiar noise rings out.
