Today, Ubisoft gave Splinter Cell fans a bit of a tease with the release of the new Deep State DLC for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint. The title adds eight new story missions and stealth-based gameplay, so it certainly seems like the perfect place for Sam Fisher to show up. The only problem is that Splinter Cell fans have been waiting for a new game in the series since 2013's Splinter Cell: Blacklist. While many fans are happy to see the character appear once again, it's definitely not the new game Splinter Cell fans have been long waiting for. As such, it's a bit of a double-edged sword!

People are pumped to have Michael Ironside back, at least!
Sam Fisher vs. <checks notes> Terminators?
Cripes, Ubisoft, please stop this nonsense. While it's always good to hear Michael Ironside's voice, I can *hear* the advancing age in his voice.

It's a pretty legitimate question.
When will Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher come back to Splinter Cell... https://t.co/5gkFgoI5om

It doesn't help that this is Sam's second appearance in a Ghost Recon game.

Of course, some fans just want to see the game get fixed.

People just aren't happy with Breakpoint, even with Sam Fisher in it.
I like Sam Fisher's development in the first mission, but Breakpoint as a product is still miserably broken. I think they took the right steps but yet again released another broken product. Shame.

And they definitely don't like that they have to pay to see him, either.
You put the sam Fisher episodes behind a paywall after your game flopped? Are you smoking crack? How dare you

Overall, I kind of agree with Edd.
