Splinter Cell Movie
Ubisoft signs deal with New Regency for Splinter Cell film, casting Bane-actor Tom Hardy as Sam Fisher, this isn’t the first Ubisoft movie adaptation that New Regency has endeavored to make.
Jean-Julien Baronnet, the CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, offered a statement on the new deal:
“With actor Tom Hardy attached and screenwriter Eric Warren Singer to write the script, Ubisoft Motion Pictures will lead the development with the support of New Regency to bring the franchise to the big screen in a dynamic way. For Ubisoft Motion Pictures, creative control is key and New Regency shares our commitment to respecting the creative freedom of our team. Their ability to produce both blockbusters and intriguing indie hits is an ideal fit for the Splinter Cell franchise.”
It’s clear that Ubisoft and New Regency are happy together otherwise we wouldn’t see two back to back projects going together, hopefully we don’t see the same mistakes that other game developers have made when making a film.
Bioshock Infinite Delayed NOOOOOOOO
It has been reported that Irrational Studios’ Bioshock Infinite has been delayed once more till the 26th of march 2013 but what do we get from this delay
Creative director Ken Levine explained the situation to IGN:
“It’s primarily polish and bug fixing. You know, ‘let’s make that narrative scene that much better. Let’s do another pass on the timing of that scene. Let’s do another balance pass.’ It’s a game we could have shipped in February. It just wouldn’t be the game that we think the fans deserve. And that doesn’t mean it was far off from that, but they deserve what they deserve. And when we ask people to pony up a lot of money for this game, we have to feel confident that we’re giving them something that they deserve.
“I knew I was going to take some slings and arrows about [the delay], but I always just said ‘look, at the end of the day, the slings and arrows will go away. The game will last forever.”
Now with this relatively short delay its safe to say that we are getting closer to playing a game which Shaun and I have been waiting to play for along time.
