Ubisoft Montreal originally pitchedSplinter Cellas a James Bond game, the studio has revealed.
Speaking toIGN, an ex-Ubisoft developer confirmed that after itsaction game, The Drift, was threatened of being canceled, the dev studio "made an attempt to impress the  license holder" with a Bond-centric spy game.
The pitch didn't pan out, and after working in the Tom Clancy license, the project eventually morphed intoSplinter Cell, one of the most recognized and beloved stealth franchises in the industry.
While theSplinter Cellseries 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!
