Fans of Tom Clancy’s computer games have gotten their first glimpse of Sam Fisher in Netflix’s upcoming animated Splinter Cell series. The streaming service is presently holding Geeked Week, a free five-day virtual event aimed at providing fans with new trailers, exclusive stories, and more. Geeked Week, which is now on its final day, has presented some of the most recent and greatest in entertainment news (June 11).
The initial Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell game, released by Ubisoft in 2002, was the beginning of the video game franchise. The protagonist, Sam Fisher, a highly trained agent with a fictional black-ops style organisation, has faced foes in a succession of fights and missions throughout the years.
The Splinter Cell video game series, which was once considered Ubisoft’s flagship title, has sold over 31 million copies despite the fact that no new instalments have been produced since 2013. The video games were so famous that they produced a popular series of books with the same name, beginning with Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell in 2004.
During their Geeked Week, Netflix released a first look at Sam Fisher in the upcoming Splinter Cell animated series via their Netflix Geeked Twitter handle. The graphic consists of a single shot of an animated Sam Fisher wearing night vision goggles on his head and a blood-splattered military outfit. In addition to the image, Netflix also revealed that Derek Kolstad, the creator of the John Wick franchise, has signed on to write the new animated series.

Fans of the video game brand turned to social media to express their displeasure with the lack of information, even after Kolstad was announced as the writer for the new Splinter Cell series. Fans were teased with the chance of discovering fresh information about the animated series throughout the week.
Many fans were disappointed when Netflix simply released a single image of the title and a shadowy image of Sam Fisher, especially given the fact that no new version of the video games had been announced since 2013. Netflix will need to provide more facts about Splinter Cell shortly in order to please the fan community, given the series is still a long way off from debuting.
