Splinter Cell conviction re-confirmed as a 360 exclusive

1 min read

The next outing of the Splinter Cell franchise – yes, the oft delayed one with the drunken emo Sam Fisher – is still in development. The game, originally scheduled for release in 2007, has been beset by numerous delays and development problems. Those hoping the additional cooking time may have been to extend the game on to other platforms will be somewhat disappointed – Ubisoft have confirmed that it is still a 360 (and Windows) exclusive.

Splinter Cell Conviction will be an interesting departure for the series; Its protagonist will no longer be hiding in the dark – Sam, now a civilian,  will be forced to blend in with crowds and fend for himself without Echelon. A modified version of the Assassin’s Creed engine will power the Ubisoft Montreal developed title.

While it looks good so far, and is bound to be better than the disappointing Shanghai developed Double Agent, my enthusiasm wanes with every new announcement.

What about the rest of you? Do any of you still care?

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    I do. I hope it’s not going to be crap. Sam Fisher is a legend. 🙂

    I just hope it’s not monotonous like AC and PoP. Both of those games had the potential to be AWESOME but fell short because it was ultimately the same thing over and over. A shame really, because PoP was a truly beautiful experience. Still worth a play for sure, but it just could have been so much more.

  • I still do actually.
    Chaos Theory is still one of my favourite
    stealth based games. Not too sure about the new direction,
    but we’ll have to wait and see.

  • I guess that’s a matter of opinion… I loved PoP it was awesome I’m waiting to get it back so I can play it through again

  • DarthPenguin

    PoP was my game of the year for last year.. collected every single orb.. and then started again… and still absolutely loving it…

  • Wolfy

    this might scare away the fanbase, a bold move… but at what cost?

  • Yeah, I agree…but I think part of what made him that legend was the voice of Michael Ironside. Without that particularly gravelly voice, I think the character becomes lifeless.

  • Fox1

    Add a new Ghost Recon to that list 😀

  • lol yeah all 1001 I did every level again just to make sure I didn’t miss that 1 orb

  • dewej

    i think that a modern assasins creed would be cooler, the whole fun with chaos theory for me was taking out everyone on a boat without anyone realizing, difficult thing to do in a free roaming game, i think it will get frustrating quickly
