Ubisoft, one of the most well-known video-game studios in the world, is teaming up with Netflix for an animated TV series based on the Splinter Cell IP - and Derek Kolstad is taking the reins. Luckily, Netflix is ready to jump into the rescue. Aside from that, Netflix, Ubisoft have declined to comment on the deal's specifics.

Derek Kolstad, who wrote the first three installments of the John Wick film franchise, will serve as writer and executive producer on the series.

Details are limited but it seems the series has already been renewed for a second season and got a 16 episode order. The latest game, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and the latest novel, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist: Aftermath, were both released in 2013. Now being developed in collaboration with Ubisoft, this production has also enlisted the very capable John Wick writer - Derek Kolstad. It's set for an August 27 release date on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. The game sees Fisher engage in a number of black ops missions, employing stealth and military tactics. Fans of Splinter Cell can - hopefully - expect a similar level of quality and production. He has also been tipped as the screenwriter for an adaptation of Just Cause as a film, though nothing has been heard of the venture since he announced his intentions in May 2019. However, according to the statements made past year, a new Splinter Cell game is not developed.

The fact that this isn't a new game is sure to upset some fans, however, there are some interesting aspects to the show.

Prior to that, Variety notes that Ubisoft previously adapted their game "Assassin's Creed" into a film starring Michael Fassbender in 2016.
