David Grivel, who was due to star in the next Splinter Cell remake, has apparently left Ubisoft.
Grivel posted a picture on LinkedIn showing him stepping down from Ubisoft, but didn''t explain why he made the decision to do so. "It''s now time for me to embark on a new adventure," said Grivel.
"11 years is a long time and resolving it 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 developed last year at Ubisoft Toronto, where the Snowdrop engine is being used as the first engine to Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, as well as the Star Wars game the developer is developing.
Not much is known about the game yet, a classic ''yes, it''s real,'' but then without having much to say past that point. It is being built from the ground up, and producer Matt West said last year that it was very early in development, so it is still probably a while away.
Last month a job listing noted that the game might have a story "for a modern-day audience," which translates to trying to keep the game as original, but making it a bit more "believable."
