Update: Gerighty changed his Twitter icon and banner to fit a Splinter Cell theme just moments after posting the initial tweet. Despite the overwhelming evidence, Ubisoft released a statement on the matter to USGamer.

The statement reads, “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.”

Original Story: Splinter Cell is alive and well, and players may have more information to look forward to next month.

Announced with little fanfare on Twitter, creative director at Ubisoft Julian Gerighty has confirmed that “the next Splinter Cell” entry is coming. Check out the surprise reveal tweet below.

Ubisoft leads Dan Hay and Roman Campos-Oriola were also confirmed to have a hand in the project thanks to the tweet.

Gerighty also alludes to more information to be unveiled during E3 next month, though he does not confirm the game will have a presence at the show.

After years of waiting for even the smallest drop of news about the classic stealth series, this tweet comes as a shock. The last time a full-fledged entry in the series was released was more than six years ago with Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Check out OnlySP’s review here.

ARMA 3 ‘Contact’ Campaign Will Take Around Six Hours to Complete

ARMA 3

ARMA 3‘s new spin-off expansion will receive a sizable campaign, which is expected to take between four and six hours to complete.

Joris-Jan van ‘t Land, project lead of ‘Contact‘, provided some fresh details regarding the campaign length in an exclusive interview with OnlySP. He confirmed that the campaign will take around four to six hours to complete depending on player ability:

“The length is always hard to specify, because it, of course, depends on each individual player, and how much they explore the terrain beyond the core objectives. We’d estimate normal play sessions lasting between 4 and 6 hours.” He continued, “After that, there’s, of course, a cool box of new toys to tinker with, including the rest of the new Livonia terrain. We also hope community creators get inspired to build their own alien scenarios.”

van ‘t Land also revealed that players will take on the role of a “NATO drone operator” undergoing military training exercises in Livonia. During one of these seemingly routine training exercises, humanity encounters an alien species coming face-to-face with strange technology.

“A big part of the campaign is about uncovering its mystery and exploring what is going on, so we’ll leave most details for players to discover for themselves.” He added, “You will assume the role of a NATO drone operator, deployed to Livonia for military training exercises. Eventually, our alien visitors arrive at the Area of Operations, and from there on out you’re part of an improvised reconnaissance operation to investigate what’s going on.”

ARMA 3 ‘Contact’ is set to release on 25 July 2019 for PC. Our full interview with Bohemia Interactive about the expansion will be available in the coming days.
