A Splinter Cell animation will be produced for Netflix. In addition to the 7 games released from the company so far, there are four published Splinter Cell novels.

Netflix has teamed with Ubisoft for an anime series based on the Splinter Cell video game franchise, with John Wick writer Derek Kostad set to write and executive produce, Deadline has confirmed.


It's been reported that a new Splinter Cell anime adaptation is in the works for Netflix by John Wick creator Derek Kolstad. Needless to day, this is a great combination, as Kolstad has shown plenty of promise when it comes to writing action with a hint of seedy groups of bad guys up to no good.

Splinter Cell has been a long-dormant franchise with the last game releasing in 2013. What do you all think of this announcement? Now the veteran Ubisoft flagship series will come to the screen as an anime series of two seasons and sixteen episodes. A movie version has also seen its own series of fits and starts, with actor Tom Hardy attached to the starring role in 2012. It centers on Sam Fisher, a black-ops agent for a clandestine division of the National Security Agency known as Third Echelon. Whatever the case, this is definitely exciting news for fans of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell series, if true. The Castlevania original series premiered on their streaming platform in 2017 with its fourth season green-lit as of March 2020.


Once upon a time, movie and television adaptations of video games were practically always bad.

Official statements from Netflix and Ubisoft have yet to be made but we'll likely hear more shortly.
