We told you earlier about Ubisot’s Splinter Cell Conviction delay, as well as our
well thought-out rationale guesses about why. Today we extrapolate a bit, with news from Ubisoft that the delay doesn’t mean the game’s in for it’s 3rd overhaul. Ubisoft are doing their best to convince us that the delay is to give the game a bit of a spit and polish, saying such PR-trained things as;
â€œSplinter Cell Conviction is a very important game for us. We want to ensure it’s a game that long-term fans and gamers new to the series equally enjoy when they play it. Previous Splinter Cell games have set the bar very high when it comes to quality and enjoyment, we are firmly focused on continuing this with Conviction.â€ He continued, saying â€œThis extra time will ensure Splinter Cell Conviction becomes every bit the fantastic experience we want it to be.â€
I’m not convinced. Like many publishers, I think they’re delaying their games so that they don’t go head-to-head at retail with the sales behemoth that Modern Warfare 2 will no doubt be. Regardless, what all these delays mean is that 2010 is going to be an incredible year to be a gamer.
