Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell HD
Splinter Cell HD Trilogy Collection Coming in 3D This June, But With No Multiplayer
Written Friday, April 08, 2011 By Richard Walker

Splinter Cell HD Trilogy Collection is on the way this June, remastering Splinter Cell, Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory in sparkly HD. Ubisoft has taken the PC versions of the trilogy, to get the best possible results before upgrading the visuals in high definition.

So, all three Splinter Cell titles previously seen on PS2 will be available in HD on a single Blu-ray disc or as separate downloads on PSN. The games will also have full stereoscopic 3D support and a set of challenging trophies to earn.

However, when quizzed about whether Splinter Cell's multiplayer elements would make the jump to PS3 intact, Ubisoft's PR coordinator Alex Monney said that "the online part of the original games won’t be included. Furthermore, Monney stated that there will be no co-op either. "Sorry no co-op will be included in the trilogy," he said on the PlayStation Blog.

So, there you go. 3D, HD and trophies, but no online or co-op, sadly. Splinter Cell Trilogy will be available on June 17th in Europe and June 21st in North America.

Good on them. Single player is where game makers should focus on and leave the online for last or not at all :) A shame about co-op though.

I played these games without co-op or multiplayer, so nothing disappointing to me about it. Would like to get trophies for these though.

I had fun with the offline co-op back in the day. Who the hell cares about making these things 3D though? Would rather they kept the co-op than put in shit 3D.

It's not like the multiplayer would've transferred well anyways so I don't think anyone will be complaining.

I wish they included multiplayer. Splinter Cell Chaos Theory had the best multiplayer. Double Agent isnt as nearly as good as that when it comes to MP.
No Co-op is a shame too, since I loved playing co-op.
I also wish they included Double Agent from the PS2 version. I think I am asking for a bit too much, but when they first announced this, thats what I was expecting. Anyways, Still getting this, since I've been a big fan of Splinter Cell.

Didn't the original have online? LOL at everyone on this site hates online.. I like to be competitive with others. Makes you master a game.. Earning a Platinum these days really means. "I watched a guide or I cheated my way to 100%"

Fun times in the days of gaming.

Hummmm... The fact that is also going to be for download on the PSN is going to change the price?, I mean, I know that we'll be able to download 1 or 2 games if we want (same as the PoP trilogy) but at what price? because if downloading this games it's going to cost you 15 bucks per game and the BD will be 30 bucks it useless for them to be on downloaded versions.

Anybody knows if it's going to be a bundle price or the cost of every individual game?

@24 the psn versions will always be far more expensive than the disc, which is £25 preorder in the UK and each game will be around £12 seperate.

i never even realised these games had MP in the past, never bothered much with them and im not a co-op gamer either. so yeah no MP thats fine by me, all games should have no MP trophies, would stop the cheaters and hackers.

Loss of co-op is pretty big for Chaos Theory, but an MP community would be hard pressed to happen now a days.

I just hope they fix the erratic difficulty in SC 1 and the other little bugs that each game has but considering how buggy the current Trilogy editions of other games are, I'm not getting my hopes up.

it amazes me every time i go on gaming websites the amount of people that dont give 2 shits about online multiplayer (myself included). all these people must be big gamers, they wouldnt be visiting the websites if they wernt.

so it definitely begs the question: is it only noobs who are interested in online multiplayer??

@35 Totally agree, fond memories of the online mutiplayer on these. But it was at a time when online was less frequent on releases and better thought out. I don't think it would be anywhere near as enjoyable now and probably a wise choice not to include it.

These games actually had incredible multiplayer so it will be missed.Thankfully though we're getting the PC versions updated :D Personally though I'm waiting to see if the reports that this was coming to the 360 as well are true,but its good news regardless.

@47 I think someone didn't listen to the Kevin Butler speech at E3 2010...a gamer is a gamer, no matter what they play.

The PC version looked good, so this should be a nice-looking end product. Not including multiplayer is no big deal, after all it's a remake.

This had one of the single most innovative multiplayer modes I've ever played, and I've played a few.

Who actually played Pandora on the Xbox?

The third/first person menagerie was pristine for what you could want in a stealth game.

That said, I'm glad MP isn't included - simply because people won't appreciate it nowadays.

*Sad face*

Splinter Cell Double Agent was one of the first games I got on the PS3 and is also probably one of the best, single player was ok but the multi player was just amazing, it was so different from anything i'd played 3v3 spys v mercs, such a challenging tactical game. Shame that theres no multiplayer as I'd have liked to see how it played out. But obviously most people just wanna get there hands on this game for the precious trophies.

No Co-op? Looks like it'll be a while before I pick this collection up. I've always wanted to try out the spys/mercs online, too.
Oh well. For half the experience, I'll pick it up half price used later.

Generally I'm a single player / co-op man, so this is good news for me. But I'll miss the co-op mode. Well thought out online games can be great though, but they're too far between.

@58, Chaos Theory had one of the best multiplayer ever. I played it for countless hours. I really wish they included it. Cod Classic has multiplayer, so I see no reason for this to not have it. Anyways, still gonna enjoy these. Its still kind of sad how people who havent even played the multiplayer for these games are just happy there wont be multiplayer trophies. You guys will be missing out on a lot.

Praise Jeebus no online. Will defo be getting this now! Im sick of all this noob nonsense and being abused by 40 year nerd men who live with their mothers and 9 year old turds who say the dumbest shit online. Single player and local co-op used to be the basis for gaming along with great storylines. Now they can put out any old drivel with online and call it a game. I mean, I adore the Uncharted series but theres another game which simply does not need online modes

They should do online but ban multiplayer trophies from platinum and only have them with DLC. Splinter Cell doesn't need multiplayer but co-op was good back in the Xbox days.

lol, it always makes me laugh when ppl ask if a game will have trophies... u need to do some research before u post...

Sony made it MANDATORY (are ya with me here?) M-A-N-D-A-T-O-R-Y for all games (NOT including Minis, PSOne games, and SNK Ports) to have trophies since 2009.

now here it is 2 years later and ppl are still asking.

there's no facepalm hard enough to express the sheer fail...
