Splinter Cell Was Originally a James Bond Game

Ubisoft Montreal originally pitched Splinter Cell as a James Bond game, the studio has revealed.

The pitch didn't pan out, and after working in the Tom Clancy license, the project eventually morphed into Splinter Cell, one of the most recognized and beloved stealth franchises in the industry.

While the Splinter Cell series is great and all, I really would like to see how a tried-and-true James Bond stealth game would turn out. Ubisoft, make it happen!
