Over on social media today, Ubisoft dropped this surprising announcement somewhat out of nowhere. The publisher confirmed that it's going to be revealing this new Tom Clancy title beginning tomorrow at 11:00am PDT/2:00pm EDT. "Tomorrow, things are going to get wild," Ubisoft said in the tweet associated with this announcement. In addition, it also showed off a brief video featuring the Tom Clancy logo.

Tune in at 11AM PT / 8PM CEST for the worldwide reveal of a brand-new game in the Tom Clancy’s universe.
Ahead of this reveal, video game publication IGN actually showed off a glimpse of what this game will be. Although there's not a whole lot to see, the title is clearly going to be a first-person shooter of the multiplayer variety. This brief gameplay footage of the game in question can be found in the tweet right here:

While this announcement might seem like it is coming out of left field, as mentioned, we've actually heard rumors about a new Ubisoft game of this type for a bit now. Apparently, the project is going to be called Battlecat and will be an amalgamation of many of Ubisoft's Tom Clancy-branded titles. This means that it could have elements of Splinter Cell, The Division, and Ghost Recon all baked-in in some fashion. How this will actually work in-game remains to be seen, but we clearly don't have to wait much longer to find out.
