In 2020, Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad had a difficult start. It teased Splinter Cell fans and then disappointed them by bringing back Sam Fisher. But not in the new Splinter Cell title that many have been requesting for years but as a character in a mobile tactical game. Then it decided to use a raised fist as a symbol for the game’s villains, a faceless, evil cabal hiding behind protesters demanding social and economic justice, a decision that ultimately led to an apology for the “insensitive and harmful” use of imagery related to historically important movements including Black Lives Matter.

And after all that trouble, the game didn’t even make it a year: Ubisoft announced today that it has halted development of the game, and that the servers will shut down on October 4.
