Splinter Cell won’t end with Blacklist it seems, as the game’s art director Scott Lee has teased more Sam Fisher adventures going into next-gen.

Speaking with ArabicGamers, Ubisoft Toronto dev Lee said, “Sam Fisher and Splinter Cell is a big and very important franchise for Ubisoft, and yes they do support the franchise. Obviously we’re working very hard on current-gen systems and we’re super excited that we’re going to be across all platforms.

“For next-gen there are a lot of plans in the works, obviously we can’t talk about that at the moment but I definitely look forward to seeing Sam in new adventures, bigger and better as we go along. Sam will be back.”

We’ve still got the launch of Splinter Cell Blacklist to get out the way first. It drops on PC, PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360 from August 20 across North America, and from August 23 across Europe.

Thanks OXM.
