According to a internally leaked 2012 release schedule, this year could see the return of Sam Fisher in a new Splinter Cell game called Splinter Cell: Retribution. Known as Splinter Cell 6, Jade Raymond of Ubisoft had hinted that a new Splinter Cell title would be announced shortly all the way back in October of last year. Coming off the success of Splinter Cell: Conviction, the team took the game in an entirely new route, giving way to a more action oriented, Jason Bourne-like experience.
Obviously no details on the upcoming game have been revealed at this time, but if the internally leaked release schedule is to be believed, Ubisoft has quite a lineup in-store for gamers in 2012.
Brothers in Arms: Furious 4
Far Cry 3
I Am Alive
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Retribution
Prince of Persia

As of this time, Ubisoft is denying that said list even exists.
