The protagonist of one of Ubisoft's most notable franchises, Splinter Cell's Sam Fisher, has featured in numerous titles under the studio's umbrella since his last endeavor in 2013's Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist. They are mostly brief appearances as downloadable content in the likes of Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Far Cry: New Dawn.
Ubisoft revealed Sam Fisher is making his way into Ghost Recon: Breakpoint with his own adventure, Deep State. The developer didn't give the community much to talk about, as the trailer is relatively short, and with no information on the content itself. However, you get to hear Sam Fisher's voice actor Michael Ironside sarcastically mention some of the issues that plagued Ghost Recon: Breakpoint and the community complained from in prior times.
As for Sam Fisher's own future and the Splinter Cell franchise, Ubisoft Creative Director Julian Gerighty hinted towards a new title in development in conjunction with Ubisoft Montreal's team earlier in May 2019. Fans automatically assumed it is a new Splinter Cell title, but we haven't heard anything new since. In fact, the studio itself labeled Gerighty's statement as a "joke," and provided Game Informer with a statement that it was their directors having fun. It was relatively suspicious at the time as he changed his Twitter header to a Splinter Cell image, and the tweet seemed a little sarcastic.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint is available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Make sure to check out the trailer below, even though it doesn't reveal much other than announcing Deep State itself. The new mission will drop on March 24th for all platforms.
