Ubisoft is updating its story for a "modern-day audience," according to a new job listing for the next Splinter Cell remake.
This listing, which was discovered by PSU, is for a scriptwriter and states, "Using the first Splinter Cell game as our foundation, we are currently writing and updating the story for a modern-day audience."
According to a previous post, Ubisoft intends to "keep the spirit and themes of the original game" with this remake while "exploring [its] characters and the world to make them more authentic and believable."
Ubisoft says it is looking for a writer who can create a "cohesive and compelling narrative experience" for a fresh audience of Splinter Cell enthusiasts.
In December last year, Ubisoft announced its intention to remake Splinter Cell. At this time, the company said the game is being "from the ground up" with improved visuals and design elements to "match player comfort and expectations."
Ubisoft has confirmed that the game will be linear and that it will not feature any open world gameplay, much like the originals.
The first Splinter Cell game was first developed back in 2002. Since then, several other mainline titles have been achieved with varying degrees of success. The most recent of these, Blacklist, was released in 2013.
On Blacklist''s release, Eurogamer gave the company an 8/10, with Tom Bramwell calling it a "major fusion of cinematic storytelling and expressive gameplay systems in a cool location."
He said that although Blacklist is "being pushed in two directions at once," the view may seem to vary, but only one of them is a destination you''ll want to go.
