A Splinter Cell Anime is in the Works at Netflix
An anime based on the world of the Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell series appears to be underway at Netflix.
According to a report from Hollywood publication Variety, their sources claim that the project has already been greenlit for sixteen episodes across two seasons and will see Ubisoft and Netflix teaming up with Derek Kolstad, who is best known for writing the John Wick series of movies. There's no word yet on if the series will adapt the stories of the games or if it'll be a whole new tale set in the stealth series' universe or indeed any word at casting at the current time. The news was later seemingly confirmed by one of the official Netflix Twitter accounts, who retweeted the story asking fans if they were "ready for the next level of action?"
It is of course far from the first foray into videogame anime for Netflix, with their very successful anime based on Konami's Castlevania series recently getting greenlit for a fourth season. The last we heard on Splinter Cell was Sam Fisher's Italian voice actor claiming that the series "will return, this is a fact" a couple of weeks ago.
Ready for the next level of action? Netflix is working on an all new anime based on the classic stealth shooter Splinter Cell, written by none other than John Wick writer Derek Kolstad! @Ubisoft https://t.co/tzb4yigRdV— NX (@NXOnNetflix) July 31, 2020
