Splinter Cell: Conviction Delayed… Again!


OK, this is getting really, really old.

Splinter Cell: Conviction, in development for years now and originally planned for release as early as late 2007, has been delayed yet again. This time around the delay is even more disappointing too, because it was only a few months ago when Ubisoft announced that Conviction would be shipping on February 23rd (after another prior delay out of the ’09 holiday season), and that date finally seemed like a sure thing.

But alas it was too good to be true, as Conviction‘s launch has now been bumped to an undisclosed day in April. And at this point is anyone convinced it’ll even make that date? Right about now I wouldn’t be surprised for a second if it slides into the fall. Sorry, it’s kinda hard to be optimistic when a game has been delayed as much as this one has!

In other delay news, Ubisoft has also pushed its WWII RTS R.U.S.E. off its February 2nd ship date into next fiscal year, which means the game will ship sometime between April 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011.
