As it was recently reported, the head of the company's Customer Service Center, Tara Johnson Reichley, only announced that they would ban people simply for submitting a support ticket. The company will ban and therefore prohibit playing games that have already been purchased if players simply submit a ticket for a specific game.
As Reichli has publicly stated, Ubisoft has no plans to fix connectivity issues in the Splinter Cell Blacklist. This means that you can no longer play it online or in co-op. Fair. After all, Splinter Cell Blacklist is a really old game. And, you can still play it offline. But banning players for just submitting a support report for online gaming? It seems pretty strange.
Ubisoft deleted this thread, claiming that the post was written by a user posing as a Ubisoft employee and not a support person. However, after initial feedback, it sounds very convenient considering that this topic has been pinned and the reply feature has been disabled. This can only be done by administrators and moderators. You can't just create a new account and pin the topic. Since Ubisoft was unable to explain these things, let's be wary of all this PR mess.
It goes without saying that the violator was aiming to publicize the issue of server problems that often prevent a player from playing Splinter Cell: Blacklist in co-op and multiplayer. It must be admitted that their goal is achieved as the server problems of the game became more highlighted among the gaming community right now. Besides, it can be a deliberate move to draw attention to the series. Perhaps Ubisoft is preparing a new update for the tile, or, what is even larger and more likely in our time, they can prepare a new game for the franchise. What if not a major scandal can attract so much attention to the not-so-popular series?
According to some sources, Ubisoft has finally given the go-ahead for the production of a full-fledged new part of Splinter Cell, as told by a couple of sources for the VGC edition. It is currently unknown which team is working on the project, but it is not from Montreal - perhaps a studio in Toronto, known for Splinter Cell: Blacklist, is employed. Sources of the publication emphasize that this is a traditional game - not for smartphones or VR helmets.
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist is the sixth episode of the tactical shooter series, released on August 20, 2013, for PC and consoles. Clearly, this is not a game that came out just a few days ago and, as it is normal that the support for such games becomes worse each year.
