According to reports, Netflix and Ubisoft have come together to develop an anime series around Tom Clancy‘s Splinter Cell.

Already receiving a two-season, 16-episode order from the streaming platform, John Wick creator Derek Kolstad has signed on as a writer and executive producer. Although not much is known about the animated series, it is expected to follow-up author Tom Clancy’s source material closely.

Originating as part of a Ubisoft’s licensing deal with Clancy, Splinter Cell‘s debut in 2002 introduced gamers to a new level of intricate stealth gameplay centered around protagonist Sam fisher. Following a number of sequels a film adaptation starring Tom hardy was announced back in 2017, but no information about the film has come out since.
