Ubisoft is gearing up to announce a new multiplayer first-person shooter title codenamed ‘BattleCat’ if a leak is to be believed.
The game combines Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, and The Division into a single Tom Clancy-themed title. Leaked images show the Wolves faction from Breakpoint, as well as Splinter Cell’s Echelon, and The Division’s Outcasts and Cleaners.
However, even though E3 is right around the corner, BattleCat is not expected to make an appearance at Ubisoft’s Forward event later this week, as the game has only been in development for a short while.
Twitter user Zer0Bytes0 provided the leak, which describes two game modes in the form of Escort and Ringleader.

In Escort, players escort a package to a dropzone. In Ringleader, everybody fights to pick up rings that are dropped by downed opponents. The player with the most rings on each team becomes the leader, and the leader has to survive for 30 seconds to bank their rings. Characters are said to have individual special abilities, such as Echelon’s radar stealth.
Where the new title will fit into Ubisoft’s barrage of Tom Clancy-related titles remains to be seen. The publisher announced a free-to-play Division spin-off called Heartland last month and is known to be working on a squad-based survival FPS set in the world of Rainbow Six, codenamed Quarantine, which is expected to be shown off at Ubisoft Forward.
