After 11 years at Ubisoft, the director of the Splinter Cell remake has left

David Grivel, who was supposed to direct the forthcoming Splinter Cell remake, has apparently left Ubisoft.

In a posting on LinkedIn, Grivel stated his departure from Ubisoft, but did not explain why he made it. "It is now time for me to embark on a new adventure," said Grivel.

"11 years is a long process, and being 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 this new adventure is? Stay tuned."

Grivel did not elaborate on what this new adventure might be, nor did he mention who would take over the Splinter Cell remake project as a result of his departure from the company.

The Splinter Cell remake was first announced last year, and is being developed by Far Cry 6''s lead studio Ubisoft Toronto, where it is being developed with the Snowdrop engine, which the now-delayed Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is being built in, as well as the Star Wars game the developer is developing.

Not all is known about the game yet, a classic ''yes, it''s real,'' and then not having much to say past that point. It is being built from the ground up, and producer Matt West did last year said it was very early in development, thus it is still likely a while away, particularly now.

A job listing stated that the game would have a story "for a modern-day audience," according to a last month''s article, which translates to attempting to keep the game afloat to the original''s core, but making it a bit more "believable."
