A new chapter in the chronicles of troubled hard man Sam Fisher will be revealed by Ubisoft at E3, rumours would have us believe.
It will be called Splinter Cell: Black List, IGN reports, and is scheduled for release on Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U in January 2013.
Although a new Splinter Cell game has never been officially announced, such a title has reportedly been in the works for some time with development being headed by Ubisoft's Jade Raymond
The talk suggests that the somewhat weather-worn, aged Sam Fisher seen in Splinter Cell: Conviction is long gone, having been replaced with a leaner, fully-suited and night-goggle version of Sam more akin to earlier games.
Despite that, the site also reckons the game is a direct sequel to Conviction.
