Sam Fisher Makes a Sad Shoutout to Metal Gear's Snake in Ghost Recon Wildlands

"Then it's only me."

Sam Fisher is back in a limited event for Ghost Recon Wildlands. But you know who might not be back anytime soon? Snake from Metal Gear Solid. In that way, this little shoutout by Fisher to Snake feels all the more heartbreaking.

Ghost Recon Wildlands is holding a year two of post-launch content and the first one out is a mission based on the return of Splinter Cell's Sam Fisher. He has to go to Bolivia and work with the Ghost team for some secret covert ops. But it's been a long time since we've seen Fisher in action and in the clip below he talks about another special-ops, someone like Fisher, who he learns recently retired.

This is a not-so-subtle nod to Snake of Metal Gear fame. As we know from creator Hideo Kojima's public falling out with Konami, it's safe to say that we won't have another Snake adventure anytime soon. Not a Kojima-backed one at least. Meanwhile the Metal Gear franchise is kicking along with Metal Gear Survive which is a strange facsimile of Metal Gear games really.

Fisher's melancholic, "It's only me," line is pretty gut-punching though we should remember that it's been a long time since we've had a solo Splinter Cell game too. Maybe we'll hear something at this year's Ubisoft E3 press conference.

For more on Fisher's foray into Bolivia check out our complete Ghost Recon Wildlands review which praised the game's open world and vast gameplay offerings. An offering that's only grown as the game continues to age.
