Ubisoft has announced a partnership with writer Nathan Edmondson and artist Marc Laming to create a graphic novel based on Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell franchise. This collaboration will introduce readers to new facets of Sam Fisher and will explore the Splinter Cell universe from a fresh perspective.
Set for release in 2013, the Splinter Cell Echoes graphic novel takes place between the events of Splinter Cell Conviction and Splinter Cell Blacklist. The plot bridges the gap between the two games with a realistic, original story that sets the tone for the opening events in Splinter Cell Blacklist.
“Sam Fisher is a legend, but this story is our own. We are working with Ubisoft to add something special to the Splinter Cell canon that will simultaneously be exciting to fans of the series while being a thrilling stand-alone read,” said Nathan Edmondson. “Together with Marc Laming, Studio Lounak, and the Ubisoft Toronto team, we’re shedding new light on Sam Fisher.”
The next title in the game series, Splinter Cell Blacklist, is set for release in 2013.
