Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Has A Splinter Cell Easter Egg, Board the Hype Train

Fans of the stealth video games franchise last got to see a Splinter Cell title back in 2013. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey hint at the Splinter Cell protagonist that could finally mean something. A Sam Fisher reference has come up in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

The trademark goggles of Sam Fisher got spotted in the latest Assassin’s Creed title. A tweet pointing out the Splinter Cell reference caught the gaming fraternity’s attention. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has a room found to have the Sam Fisher goggles sitting in there.

A fresh Splinter Cell video game had started to become a lost cause now as fans have been calling for it since long. It might be time for developers to finally come up with a new title for the series. We got to know earlier that Ubisoft is trying their best to develop a new Splinter Cell game.

Back at the E3 Conference, the news of a Splinter Cell title was soaring but it turned out to be a rumor. Now that we have got a brand-new Easter egg in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, things might already be underway. Yet we got the same expression when Sam Fisher appeared in Ghost Recon Wildlands earlier. That rumor got regarded to such an extent that Walmart Canada even listed the game on their store.

Moreover, the Inside Xbox Show is also known to have hinted at a Splinter Cell project earlier. All in all, a Splinter Cell movie is much called for now as no other stealth game was able to take its place so far. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey reference is only an excuse to address the real issue at hand.

Meanwhile, this Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Easter egg might get disregarded too. The Sam Fisher reference could be a simple nostalgic element added by the developers. As Ubisoft owns both the Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell franchises, it is quite probable.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is not the first to have inspired by Splinter Cell. The highly-anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 added a feature inspired by Splinter Cell. Similarly, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey got the legendary armor sets inspired from Greek history too.
