Ubisoft has hinted that future iterations of the Splinter Cell series may make an appearance on the PlayStation 3.
In an interview with, Ubisoft Montreal’s Max Beland said the future of the franchise is yet to be decided and refused to rule out a return to PS3, despite the between the franchise and Microsoft’s consoles.
“I don’t see why it wouldn’t. I’m not involved in the business deals,” said Beland.
“I joined Splinter Cell after the exclusivity deal with Microsoft had already been signed, but there’s no reason why Splinter Cell couldn’t be on the PS3. Conviction? No because of the exclusivity deal. I know people keep talking about maybe, maybe not, [but] at Ubisoft Montreal I haven’t seen anyone working on PS3 for Conviction.”
“[The next game] is open to new deals,” he added.
“If Microsoft wants an exclusivity deal, they don’t call me, it’s Yves [Guillemot, Ubisoft CEO] dealing with the business people. But yeah, I guess we could even be a PS3 exclusive if there’s a deal that makes people happy there.”
Beland went on to say that if the company’s “direction doesn’t change”, we will see more from the Splinter Cell series.
Splinter Cell: Conviction is due for release on Xbox 360 and PC on 15 April. Check out our preview.
