At the end of the Komodo Shipyard mission, Grimsdottir mentions that the PMC working with the terrorists is "something called Displace" which Sam does not react to despite his relation to CEO Douglas Shetland. The debriefing screen, however, names the PMC not as Displace, but as Armed Guardian Services. This suggests that a last minute script change may have taken place. The idea of an antagonistic Displace International is later used in Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory (2005).

The game plants several seeds for the plot of its follow-up Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory (2005). The UN investigation called Project Watson, the controversy surrounding Japan's ISDF, the Black Gold Day market crash, the introduction of Douglas Shetland and Displace International and to a lesser extent the name "Nakariakov" are all given small mentions in this game, and while seemingly irrelevant and unrelated, later become key points in the sequel.
