Ubisoft has teamed up with Netflix to create an anime series based on the popular video game franchise, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, according to a Variety report.

Loved Blacklist on the PS3 and I watch Netflix stuff all the time so I'm definitely hyped for this.

Why anime?

Cool. Can we get a full sized new game, though?

Doesn't seem likely. It's gone a whole console generation without a release, which usually isn't a good sign for the state of a franchise.
