The upcoming Splinter Cell VR game under development at Ubisoft will have some sort of multiplayer element, according to a recent job posting.
The advertisement for the staff role specifically mentions that Ubisoft is looking for a senior lead game designer who will “lead the Dusseldorf team to define and deliver the multiplayer content of the game.”
The job description says, “As the Project Owner for multiplayer, you define and implement the multiplayer vision shared by the Creative Director and the Game Director. With your team, you define the multiplayer systems and game modes for the game and you ensure that the online technology is developed and available to make your choice a reality.”
This confirms that the Splinter Cell game will have some sort of multiplayer mode when it launches.
However, from the information available in the listing, it appears as if any multiplayer element is still in the very early stages of development. This might be why Ubisoft has so far not revealed any details about it yet. Fans can likely expect more information in the months ahead.
Despite once being one of the company’s most popular and successful franchises, the Spliner Cell series has been dormant for almost eight years. The last entry launched in 2013 in the form of Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Yet, Ubisoft confirmed last year that it is working on a VR release based on the stealth game.
