Ubisoft is reportedly going unveil a new Tom Clancy branded title tomorrow, July 19th. This game is reportedly codenamed "Battlecat" and will combine the worlds of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, and The Division. These franchises will combine together to form a new multiplayer game that is more akin to a hero shooter than a more grounded, tactical title.

Players will take on the role of the Splinter Cell's Echelon as playable characters, the Wolves from Ghost Recon Breakpoint, and the Cleaners and Outcasts from The Division. Each character class will reportedly include their own unique abilities. For example, the Echelon will get radar stealth and the Wolves will get additional armor. Each class also have ultimate abilities such as "Diving Intervention" for the Outcasts, which reportedly stops nearby allies from dying for a limited time.

The leak also includes information about two game modes. There is Escort, which tasks players with taking a package to a delivery zone while defenders try to stop that from happening. There is also Ringleader, a mode where players fight to collect rings from dead opponents.

If all of this sounds familiar, it could be because these BattleCat details were revealed about a month ago by VGC. So why report on this now? Because Ubisoft is reportedly readying their official reveal for tomorrow, July 19 at 11AM (PT).


Additionally, two clips have been posted online by both GameSpot and IGN that show off some of the gameplay. It seems to line up with the rumors that surfaced last month.
