Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction
Splinter Cell 6 in Development at Ubisoft Toronto Says Jade Raymond
Written By
View author's profile

Ubisoft Toronto Managing Director, Jade Raymond, who hit the big time as Producer on the original Assassin's Creed, has confirmed the inevitable... and that's that Ubisoft Toronto is working on Splinter Cell 6.

That's the one after Conviction if you lost count.

"We're working on Splinter Cell 6, the next iteration of the blockbuster franchise and we're doing it entirely here in Toronto," said Raymond in a promotional video talking about the new studio.

"We're working on two products," she continued, "There's actual game production going on already," which is pretty impressive considering how little time the studio has been up and running.

Ubisoft Toronto, according to Raymond, already has 83 people working there, from concept artists and animators to audio directors and people working on gameplay, and they are well on track to hit their target of 800 staff in the next 10 years.

If you check out the promotional video - which you can see on Eurogamer - you'll even catch a glimpse of Splinter Cell: Conviction's Creative Director, Maxime Béland, hard at work at his new home.

Beland incidentally also worked on Rainbow Six Vegas as well. Is it too much to ask that Beland and co. are hard at work on both of these established Ubisoft franchises? After all, the next Rainbow Six is long overdue.

I was pretty disappointed with Conviction. Hopefully the Toronto studio can change that for 6.

Hmmmm, Jade Raymond. Not only is she incredibly smart and talented at producing good games but she's just so damn cute!

Not a fan of the SC series but with Jade at the helm I might give them another go when this one comes out.

Convictions was tragic, hopefully Jade can bring it back to it's glorious stealthy-ness. Instead of this over the top brutal-ness that we had with convictions.

The problem isn't the quality Splinter Cell turned into. It's the type of gameplay it turned into.
Rather than going in silent, you can now choose to "Run in guns blazin.'" Games these days are too casual.

I finally ordered Conviction today, after being hooked in the demo. Used to hate stealthy games but now that you don't have to be bored to death in the shadows, it's a lot of fun. Kudos Ubisoft! Just don't milk it. Not that they're going to, but still.

@18, do they speak English in wales? I can imagine roads and roads of book stores and not a single dictionary. Also, when I spell a word wrong it underlines it in red. You might want to look in to that.

@19 Ironically and deservedly, it seems you have suffered from your own logic, as there's a capital 'W' in 'Wales'

Anyway, glad #6 has been given the green light, Conviction was great and it'd be cool to see where Sam goes next.

I think that if they made a new R6, it would be up there with CoD....if they did it right though.

OT: Was I the only one who thought Conviction was a reboot? (I can be mistaken)
Where the hell is this 6th one coming from?

@10,11..I really hope they dont go back to the all stealthy gameplay.I really love the new direction they went with SC:C.Just make the game a little bit longer,expand the multiplayer and you've got a day 1 customer in me.

This is fantastic news! I just hope they change up the mechanics and don't use the "same-game-different-skin" deal that a lot of gaming companies are doing these days. I loved Conviction, but for the next one I want something different.

@29 Conviction turned way too much into something like Rainbow Six or Ghost Recon. I would prefer if they added more elements to keep it like the old Splinter Cell games.

Let's put it this way, the first level = awesome. Felt like the old SC games but still had fast paced action. After that it went down hill. And by the end it was like I was playing Rainbow Six, but without a squad to command.

If the next game is like the first level of Conviction, I will be happy and stay with the series, otherwise I am done. Now to go find a copy of Double Agent or Chaos Theory on the original Xbox.

PS: Your dumb, for trying to force your opinion on me. I have my own thank you very much.

Love every Splinter Cell game, Conviction was badass. Can't wait until 6 comes out, and goes for Rainbow Six? IMO I think there games that isn't very fun, and too rough, hate it.

I love Splinter Cell but I'm not too interested in this right now. If Ubisoft's past track record is anything to go by then we won't be seeing this game until at least 2016.

Conviction was a TAD too action-oriented. A little more stealth would have been nice.

Well i really enjoyed conviction. AND i really enjoyed Double agent on the 360. The two felt like completely different games though. Sam fisher is a lethal weapon nowadays, but it does make the game feel too casual. With this game try and get a better balance. And get a better games engine ;)

i think its hilarious that some of the purists think that if your not "hiding" the whole time, that the game is casual... i never liked splinter cell that much, I always preferred metal gear for some sneaking around, at least its fun in that franchise, but Conviction was just amazing... games have to evolve

Well if they put single player from Conviction with multiplayer from Double agent, we would have a winner on our hands. Still can't get over mutliplayer disappointment in Conviction;-(

Hmm some1 mentioned the direction and I agree, I loved having to sit and wait for the moment to strike between patrols and staying stealthy throughout, it has lost it's magic for me to run and gun.
Still love them though
