David Grivel, who was about to be directing the next Splinter Cell remake, has apparently left Ubisoft.
Grivel shared a photo on his LinkedIn where he announced his departure from Ubisoft, although it didn''t explain why he made the decision. "It''s now time for me to embark on a new adventure," he said.
"11 years is a long journey, so summing it up in one post is quasi-impossible but I must say, I have been fortunate to work with so many great people over the years. Made so many friends As for what that new adventure is? Stay tuned."
Grivel did not reveal what this new adventure might be, nor did he mention who would take over the Splinter Cell remake project as a result of his retirement from the company.
The Splinter Cell remake was first announced last year, and is being developed by Far Cry 6 at Ubisoft Toronto, where the Snowdrop engine, which is the same engine that Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is now being built in, as well as the Star Wars game the developer is developing.
The game, which has been designed from the ground up, is not much known for yet, a classic ''yes, it''s real,'' and then still has little to say past that point. Last year, producer Matt West said it was very early in development, so it''s still likely a while away, especially right now.
Last month, a company listing noted that the game would have a story rewritten "for a modern-day audience," implying that the game would be kept up to the original''s intent, but thus making it a bit more "believable."
