Ubisoft relvealed today that through a partnership with Nathan Edmondson and artist Marc Laming fans of Splinter Cell are going to see a new graphic novel produced and published. This new graphic novel will give fans of the franchise a new perspective of all things Splinter Cell.
The novel is planned for a 2013 release and takes place between the story arc of Splinter Cell Conviction and the upcoming Splinter Cell Blacklist. The new story is said to bridge the gap between the two and provide some introductory plot information for Blacklist.
“Nathan Edmondson and Marc Laming are respected experts in their fields and we are so incredibly fortunate to have them on board for the Splinter Cell graphic novel,” said Patrick Redding, game director, Ubisoft Toronto. “Nathan’s work in The Activity put him on our radar with its gripping balance between real-world geopolitics and high-tech spy fantasy themes we also explore in Splinter Cell. We’re confident that all readers – whether they’ve played every game in the series or are new to the franchise – are going to really engage with this story and the level of fine detail Nathan and Marc inject into their book.”
