I get that point of view on games like GTA, Halo and etc....We know unless everything shits the bed, those companies will make another one. Just look at Infinite after people displeasure of Halo 5.
But with Splinter Cell.....I feel like its a bit different. I honestly believe they had no intention to bring the franchise back but fans made it happen (and with Ubisoft being in pretty bad shape with scandals and etc)...
They are making it, I hope its great but if it sucks well...the game wouldn't even exist in the first place.
I see it as...getting a cheap vacation (like Cuba), the rooms suck, the food sucks, the drinks suck....but its better than ****ing working and its sunny and if I had the choice to spend the money again, I wouldn't but at least I spent a week on a beach.
EDIT: The difference if the game sucks...well I won't buy it....
I just have to keep my fingers crossed.

The thing is, stealth has kind of become old hat. Assassins Creed, Dishonored, GTA San Andreas, Thief, heck even Transformers Fall of Cybertron had stealth segments.
Metal Gear got around it by adding objectives and unique mechanics. And fans still didn't like Metal Gear V.
How can Splinter Cell make a comeback after everyone got in on the act? Do they go back to the basics, and risk being called a relic? Or something novel, which is always a major risk to get right?
Hitman 3 was one of the best games of the last year. GTFO with that shit.

They had Ironside return for both the last two Ghost Recon games, so I don't see why he wouldn't return for this.
Lol @ thinking an entire genre is old hat.
According to Tom Henderson (super reliable leaker), the open world SC is still a thing too. This is probably just to pacify the rabids like me. Jokes on them.
I'd heard about the Ghost Recon thing. Honestly though, there's a big difference between that and a fully voiced game script. That and if this is a remake of sorts, I expect them not to bring him back anyway. I mean, I would prefer he come back, I just don't expect it.
