Ubisoft doesn’t precisely have the most effective repute for retaining its upcoming titles below wraps. As we noticed not too long ago with the brand new Ghost Recon, a leaked Ubisoft title is as frequent an incidence as an open world map stuffed with icons. Today, the newest attainable leak from Ubisoft is ready to lastly fulfill the Walmart Canada prophecy, since what we’re coping with right here is the long-awaited next Splinter Cell. Don’t get your hopes up but, although. This “leak” comes from a candid tweet from Division 2 inventive director Julian Gerighty, which Ubisoft PR is presently calling a joke. Oops!

It all began earlier at present when Gerighty despatched the next tweet out of nowhere:

Working on the subsequent #SplinterCell with @danhaynow and @romcamor in #Lyon.

Can’t await #E3.

Crossover with #TheCrew2 with @_fergus_ 🙂

Only lacking @GhostRecon and @Rainbow6Game – however on their manner.#FarCry#ForHonor #TheDivision2 #RainbowSixSiege #GhostRecon pic.twitter.com/oiwMPTny9Y

Of course, with no different context, the entire web and gaming mediasphere flipped its collective lid, since so far as anybody may inform, our boy simply confirmed a brand new Splinter Cell out of the blue. That looks like an odd factor to just do forward of E3, and positive sufficient, a press release from Ubisoft PR quickly adopted. To quote IGN, the assertion learn as follows: “Julian was obviously joking as Julian likes to do. It looks like our creative directors are having fun right now. We do not have any announcements to make at this time.” The wine glasses within the tweet’s pictures definitely suggest the group was having an excellent time. For all we all know, this assertion might be about all Ubisoft may provide you with as a smokescreen for the goofiest leak of all time, or it’s 100% honest and we’re all having amusing on the expense of Splinter Cell followers.

Either manner, what we do know is that anyone is in somewhat little bit of bother:

Ok – plz don’t retweet. I could also be in bother.
