Ubisoft have announced that they will reveal the next Tom Clancy game later today. There’s no name for this new project, though it looks as though it will be going head to head with Call of Duty and other online shooters.
Tomorrow, things are going to get wild 🎉
Tune in at 11AM PT / 8PM CEST for the worldwide reveal of a brand-new game in the Tom Clancy’s universe.

We’ve already seen a few snippets of gameplay ahead of tonight’s big reveal, courtesy of IGN and TmarTn. This new game set in the Tom Clancy universe appears to be a competitive multiplayer FPS in which characters can deploy a deadly arsenal of weapons and gadgets.
Ubisoft fans have already been picking apart the teaser video and early gameplay clips for clues. Icons, logos, and imagery from various Tom Clancy games have been spotted here including Splinter Cell, The Division, and Ghost Recon. It was revealed earlier this year that Ubisoft are working on a crossover title codenamed BattleCat – it appears those leaks were legit.
When will you get to see this new game in action? You can watch a live reveal for the next Tom Clancy game tonight at 8PM CEST / 11AM PT. Ubisoft haven’t mentioned any specific details though it’s likely we’ll get a gameplay deep dive as well as some videos exploring the world/setting. There’s a chance the game might even launch in some capacity, whether a beta or early access.
The leak from earlier this year contains some juicy details. It revealed that there will be several factions including Splinter Cell’s Echelon, The Division’s Cleaners and Outcasts, and the Wolves from Breakpoint. Each faction will have their own pool of gadgets and abilities specific to their own Tom Clancy franchise. The leak also mentions two modes: Ringleader finds the teams fighting each other and collecting rings from fallen opponents, while Escort has one team taking a package to specific location and while the other team try and stop them.
This wouldn’t be the first time Ubisoft have created crossovers within the Tom Clancy universe. Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher is now a playable Operator in Rainbow Six Siege; last year Ubisoft also launched free-to-play mobile game, Elite Squad.
Whatever they have planned, we’re excited to see the game in action.
