Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction (Xbox 360 and PC) has already been delayed, but it’s going to be delayed even further. When can we see this epic stealth action title take off? Read the full article for more details.
You may have heard sometime last year about Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction (Xbox 360 and PC) getting delayed to a late ’08 and ’09 release, but as it turns out, that’s not the end of it. According to an article in the Xbox 360 World magazine, the latest sequel to the much-anticipated series will be pushed back further to late 2009, or even Spring 2010.
The reason? Apparently, the game is sent back to the drawing board by its developer, Ubisoft Montreal. It’s a good thing that they’re not rushing the game, however, as it may have ended up playing a bit like Ubisoft Montreal‘s other stealth masterpiece, Assassin’s Creed (Micorosft Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3, PC). However, the magazine also stated that the delay may have been brought about by Conviction getting “outdated” by the newer games, such as…yes, Assassin’s Creed.
We may not get our fix of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction this year, but you can be that whatever Ubisoft has in mind, it’s going to be an awesome gaming line-up in the coming fiscal year.
