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.

Kalypso Media has announced new downloadable content for its rail management simulator title Railway Empire.

In the new ‘France’ DLC, players can build their railway in the wake of the exile of Emperor Napoleon III. The Third Republic has taken power following the collapse of the French monarchy, so players have the power to decide the industrial future of France.

Players can decide to help rebuild the country’s infrastructure (alongside the new “Eiffel Tower”), or to increase the strength of the country’s borders to prepare for military conflict.

The DLC is set between 1874–1890 and adds 10 train engines, over 12 tradeable goods, and 31 new cities, as well as new songs and characters. The map can be played in the Free Game and Sandbox modes.

Railway Empire: ‘France’ is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for US$12.99. The game has also received a new update (Update 1.9).

Check out the trailer for the new DLC below.

OnlySP’s Rhain Radford-Burns discussed the importance of Railway Empire in the wider genre of historical games, noting that “the developer grants an insight into the importance of such seemingly menial tasks.”
