Ubisoft may have plans to take its Splinter Cell franchise into the television space. Last Wednesday, the publisher filed a new Splinter Cell trademark for the use of “continuing television programs and interactive television programs”. The filing encompasses the production and distribution of Splinter Cell TV shows and motion pictures while also covering the comedy, drama, live-action, and animation genres.
