"3" is slashed as Ubisoft announces that the third title in its Splinter Cell series is to go by the name Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Plus, the publisher has also confirmed the title for Xbox, with both the console version and the PC outing due at the end of the year - or in time for Christmas.
Ubisoft has said, additionally, that the game is to release "on other formats" in the first quarter of 2005. An N-Gage rendition is specifically mentioned, but we assume that versions are also being developed for PS2, GameCube and GBA. We're currently awaiting confirmation on this from the publisher.
Update: Ubisoft UK has now confirmed with us that Chaos Theory will indeed be out on GameCube, PS2 and GBA in Q1 2005.
Players reprise the role of Sam Fisher in Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory. Set in 2008, the game finds the black-ops agent on an international espionage escapade and embroiled in the world of information warfare. Plenty of gameplay and graphical updates and additions are planned, plus there's that tasty inclusion of co-op play.
