The director of the Splinter Cell remake has gone dark

David Grivel, the director of the Splinter Cell remake, has exfilled Ubisoft. After 11 years of service, Grivel has set out to find ‘new adventures’, as he likes to put it on LinkedIn. I guess Ubisoft Toronto is looking for more than just a scriptwriter now…

Will this affect the progression of the highly anticipated Splinter Cell remake? Hardly. Last December, Ubisoft officially confirmed its plans to revamp the stealth-based action franchise, also acknowledging that the project was still in a very early stage. Heck, they’re still looking for someone to update the script to fit “modern times”. So, taking that into account, I’m fairly sure Grivel’s departure won’t cause much of a disturbance in the development. It’s not like Dave was working on Skull & Bones, because that would’ve explained things.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. What are Dave’s future plans? Only he seems to know. But hey, Dave, if you’re reading this; they’re looking for adventure seekers like you at CD Projekt. With all those Witcher and Cyberpunk projects in the pipeline, the Polish might make use of your expertise. I mean, you’ve worked on Assassin’s Creed Unity, the game that lost its “worst next-gen game launch that succumbed under the hype” title to Cyberpunk 2077.
