Splinter Cell is held back by complexity

Jade Raymond, Managing Director of Ubisoft Toronto, spoke to Eurogamer about the Splinter Cell series and why it’s not more of a sales hit.

“One of the things that held it back is despite all of the changes that have happened over the years, it’s still one of the more complex and difficult games to play,” Raymond told Eurogamer.

“Even though we do have core fans who are like, ‘Oh, I want to have more of this experience,’ when you play any other game that has stealth elements, they’re all a lot more forgiving than Splinter Cell.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist, is scheduled to launch in August on PC, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360.
