Ubisoft is going to come back into the limelight with the arrival of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, a new chapter in the highly anticipated series on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.  However, Ubisoft’s chief creative officer Serge Hascoet discussed the return of “some dormant brands”, mentioning directly (and without any initial interviewer’s reference) Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell.

Unlike the series dedicated to assassins and templars, other Ubisoft franchises have been latent for several years, despite the insistent demands of the community of players. We’re talking about Splinter Cell, about a while ago rumored to be a seventh chapter near the announcement, and Prince of Persia, stopped at The Forgotten Sands, published in 2010.

The editor of GameInformer asked the company if they had in mind when the two franchises would mark their return to the market with new episodes. In that sense, the chief creative officer, Serge Hascoet, stated the following: “I love Splinter Cell. I love Prince of Persia. I can’t disclose any information at this time, but I can say we are fighting for resources. It’s not a question of will, it’s a question of means.”

We just have to wait, in the hope that the French company can find the possibilities to return to work on these two beloved series. In other news, a new Splinter Cell game screenshot was spotted in the list of Amazon Italy.

Meanwhile, the next title of Ubisoft, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, will be available starting October 5 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
