Ubisoft has publically announced that Sam Fisher is going to work for the bad guys, in a sense. Ubisoft made it public that the fourth Splinter Cell series may lead Sam Fisher (main character) to switch sides.
Tom Clancys Splinter Cell Double Agent is
coming spring 2006 to PC and consoles.
The games plot has been hotly debated on the Internet ever since pictures from Ubisofts teaser Web page were leaked.
The images showed an older Fisher with a shaved head in a mug shot, blueprints
for banks, and a psychological profile that read,
"Fisher had little or no
regard for civilian casualties," leading many to believe that the superspy was
so distraught by the loss of his daughter that he went on a bank-robbing spree. The truth, it turns out, is another win for the good guys. In an e-mail sent
out by Ubisoft, some information sheds some light on Sams recent actions. It
turns out that Fisher must
"infiltrate a vicious terrorist group and destroy it
from within" in order to
"stop a devastating terrorist attack on American soil."
Earlier today, pieces of info on the Web site indicated that Fisher indeed
spends time in jail, helps a fellow inmate break out with the help of a prison
riot, and is later offered a job in return. The site now shows four mug shots
with the warning "beware"--one of Fisher, and three of additional characters.
