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.
