Poll: Which is Splinter Cell option is better — a new game or the announced remake?

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,
This week Ubisoft did the nearly unthinkable: it announced a linear Splinter Cell remake! While we in the office thought this would be a unanimous cause for celebration, there has been a few loud detractors. A poll it is!

In the announcement post, Ubisoft notes that the Splinter Cell remake will be rebuilt with the new Snowdrop engine "to deliver new-generation visuals and gameplay, and the dynamic lighting and shadows the series is known for."

The three big leads on the project, creative director Chris Auty, producer Matt West, and technical producer Peter Handrinos were very clear that the remake is in "the very earliest stages of development." West went on to say that "what we're trying to do is make sure the spirit of the early games remains intact, in all of the ways that gave early Splinter Cell its identity. So, as we're building it from the ground up, we're going to update it visually, as well as some of the design elements to match player comfort and expectations, and we are going to keep it linear like the original games, not make it open world."

Perhaps surprisingly, the reception from fans about the announcement has been a bit divided. Some are very happy about the remake (hello!); however, we saw quite a few comments asking for a new game in the series. Let's put this to the test in the poll, shall we? Poll: Which is Splinter Cell option is better — a new game or the announced remake?

No fighting. Enjoy the weekend!
