Ubisoft has announced that the next game in the Splinter Cell franchise will be developed in the newly formed Ubisoft Toronto studio. The studio, lead by former Assassin's Creed producer Jade Raymond and partially funded by the government of Ontario, is an ambitious undertaking announced by Ubisoft last year - the new Splinter Cell will be its first game. Conviction's producer Alex Parizeau will continue his role on the next installment.
"I'm excited," Parizeau commented. "We have very high ambitions for the project, and it's a great opportunity, because Splinter Cell has a lot of visibility, and we're really hoping to attract a lot of senior talent and people who have a lot of experience in the industry.
"We we want to build the studio around that, a really strong core team, and that [Splinter Cell] is going to provide us with a really good platform to do that," he added. "I think we have a really special chance to build something strong from the start."
The "Insurgency Pack" downloadable content will be available for Splinter Cell: Conviction on May 27th.
