The action-adventure genre is going through a renaissance, at least according to one of the developers working on Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Game director Patrick Redding says gamers are "really hungry" to get into the newest Splinter Cell, and also says the game will take advantage of where the action-adventure genre is moving. The term renaissance implies a rebirth of something, so to hear it applied to the action-adventure genre can be a good thing. Redding believes gamers want "a realistically rendered world, with a really good storyline, and with a hero who is lethal and efficient whose shoes they can really step into." He thinks all three of those things are present in Splinter Cell: Blacklist and says the game will embrace the new action-adventure genre. The only bad part is we have to wait until next spring to experience it in Blacklist.
