Splinter Cell is reportedly coming back—as an anime series on Netflix

Earlier this month, Fraser made his displeasure over Ubisoft’s handling of the Splinter Cell series very clear, describing its shabby treatment of Sam Fisher and friends as “elaborate trolling” that’s been stringing fans along for seven years. Well folks, I’m here to tell you that it’s not done with us yet: There’s still no sign of a new Splinter Cell game, but Variety reports that Ubi has signed a deal with Netflix to make a Splinter Cell anime series.

The series will be written by John Wick co-creator Derek Kolstad, who has a number of other gaming-related projects in the works including a Just Cause movie, a television series based on My Friend Pedro, and a Hitman series for Hulu, although I’m not sure what the status on that one is at this point. Kolstad will also serve as executive producer, according to the report, which says that 16 episodes, for two seasons, have been ordered.
