Splinter Cell: Conviction Delay Is To Allow For More Polish

Written Thursday, January 14, 2010 by Dan Webb

Whilst it's crystal clear that Ubisoft aren't having the greatest year financially - despite Assassin's Creed 2 being a big seller - the reasons behind Splinter Cell: Conviction's delay yesterday were on the other end of the scale and were far from clear.
It was either one of two things though: to release in a better release window away from big hitters like Heavy Rain, Aliens vs. Predator and Bioshock 2, or to add more polish.
A Ubisoft representative today told Eurogamer that the delay was down to the game needing "a bit more polish." Furthermore they added, "The game looks brilliant, but we want it to be awesome."
Deja vu anyone? Splinter Cell: Forever Conviction is now slated for an April release.
