Ubisoft is gearing up to make a "big" Splinter Cell-related announcement. The official Facebook page for Splinter Cell was updated today with a stylized piece of art depicting a portion of what appears to be series protagonist Sam Fisher's face, and a message beckoning the community to "like" the image to reveal more.
No further information is available.
In June, it was reported that Ubisoft was in talks with Warner Bros. and Paramount Pictures to make a movie out of the Splinter Cell franchise. At the time, it was believed that Paramount was the frontrunner for the project.
The image in question may or may not pertain to the Splinter Cell movie, but what is known is that a new entry in the game series is due out next year. Splinter Cell: Blacklist was announced during the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo over the summer. This game is due out during spring 2013 for the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 with Kinect support.
