Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell is getting the silver screen treatment as an anime series has officially been announced by Netflix.
As reported by Variety, the Splinter Cell anime already has a writer and executive producer on board in Derek Kolstad, who’s probably best known for his role as writer on the John Wick movies.
Details are thin on the ground right now, but it seems as though Netflix is doubling down on its anime series for the future. Earlier this summer it was revealed that a Cyberpunk 2077 anime is also planned for the future.
Entitled Cyberpunk Edgerunners, the show will come from a collaboration between TRIGGER and CD Projekt Red, and will be streamed on Netflix.
The series will be set in the world of Cyberpunk, Night City, but will focus on characters and stories that won’t be explored in the upcoming game. It aims to land on the streaming platform in 2022.
The show will be a spin-off series consisting of 10 episodes, and “follows the story of a boy who walked the outlaw mercenary while overcoming the difficulty of paying. It will be distributed by Netflix in 2022.”
Meanwhile, Netflix has also revealed a live-action prequel to the incredibly popular The Witcher show, as well as an animated movie, which will be called The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf.
Over on the website, the official description for The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf reads as follows: “Long before mentoring Geralt, Vesemir begins his own journey as a witcher after the mysterious Deglan claims him through the Law of Surprise.”
It sounds like a pretty stacked few years for Netflix fans. Hopefully these newly announced projects won’t be faced with too many COVID-19 and coronavirus-related delays. 2020 has seen enough delays for a lifetime!
