Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist will be released in August on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U. According to Eurogamer, the “core version” of the game is being developed by Ubisoft Toronto, whereas the publisher’s Shanghai studio is handling the Wii U version. Ubisoft Shanghai is known for its involvement in the development of the Splinter Cell series. It made Pandora Tomorrow, helped with Double Agent, and it’s also working on the cooperative modes across all versions of Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
“What I like about what we’re doing with the Wii U is that Splinter Cell’s always about gadgets, and with the controller it’s a natural extension. It’s interesting on that side for sure, because we didn’t have to invent new ways of interacting with the game to support the hardware. It just makes sense.”
