Rumored Games E3 2011 Splinter Cell 6

Splinter Cell 6

What Ubisoft Toronto has been cooking up for Splinter Cell 6 is a complete mystery. Besides revealing that work on the next Splinter Cell had been transferred to a new studio and put in the capable hands of Jade Raymond (former Executive Producer of Assassin’s Creed 1 & 2) nothing else has been revealed about the game.

It’s been rumored that the next entry in the Splinter Cell series is titled Splinter Cell Retribution, but this name has not been confirmed by Ubisoft. Apart from an image of an email addressed to Ubisoft PR Specialist Jacint Erdei, there is nothing else to suggest this name is even real.

With more than a year of development time to work on Splinter Cell 6, it’s not a far stretch that Ubisoft might be saving it for a surprise reveal during this year’s E3. After all the attention they’ve been giving Assassin’s Creed Revelations over the last month, this would be a big surprise. Gamers no doubt want to know if the game will be returning to its original style of gameplay or if it will retain the darker, grittier, and more fast paced action of Splinter Cell Conviction.

Rumored Games E3 2011 TimeSplitters 4

TimeSplitters 4

Known for its quirky, often surreal style, the Timesplitters series is regarded as one of the most entertaining FPS series’ in gaming. Relying more on humor, parody and an abundance of monkeys than on an intense, realistic narrative, the series has carved out a distinct style for itself that gamers have been wanting more of for years. Developer Crytek UK has been open to the idea of another titleTimesplitters 4 may be primed for announcement at E3.

Marking the series’ first foray into the next generation of games, Timesplitters 4 would be able to capitalize on the current hardware in order to expand on everything that made the earlier games so memorable. The series has always focused on familiar, arcade gameplay and this installment should be no different. With the increased memory of current consoles, this would mean even larger, more diverse worlds to explore, more imaginative characters to interact with and play as, and in keeping with what the series is best known for, an even more frantic multiplayer experience.

We know Crytek will be announcing something, so is there anything more likely than another TimeSplitters game? We hope not.


Those are the games that we would love to see move from hushed whispers to concrete properties approaching release, but with more games in production than we can possibly imagine, we could be off the mark. Let us know if you think there are any secret projects or rumors that we overlooked, and we’ll bring you news on all of them and more from E3 2011.

  1. Ooooh. Timesplitters. Forgot about that game! I want!

  2. Valve publicly stated they wouldn’t be making a new engine for HL:3 but tweaking the HL:2 engine to keep up with the times. So they say…
    Perhaps they are playing possum so we have low expectations, then they blow us away with something, similar to their PR campaign during the pre-release campaign of HL:2, blowing us out of the water with the Havok physics engine.

    You may be right but I have a feeling Valve may just do what they say, they haven’t been trying anything “new” lately so that makes me feel they would do something cautious and easy like revamp their old engine rather than investing millions and years in a new one.

  3. Gran Theft 5. Grand THeft 5. Grand Theft 5. Is it even a question

  4. Oh I sooooooo want a new ‘splitters game. They are absolutely awesome!!!
