Splinter Cell is being delayed

Ubisoft is deciding to push Splinter Cell: Conviction back from a 2008 release date. They are now projecting that they will be releasing the game sometime in 2009-2010. The reason is because Ubisoft is looking to have a bigger impact with the game next year.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot explains:

“The way we build our [fiscal guidance] plan is always in having a certain number of products… that will not be automatically in the year. It was one of the products that was in what we call the ‘risky products’… it’s one product that is now leaving to another year, but it doesn’t change our plans.”

It appears that Ubisoft believes that the game will do better in a different fiscal year. All of you that are patiently awaiting this game’s release will have to wait a little longer. It is unclear whether the release change is due to reworking of the game or simply a ploy to cash in at a different time. Signs up at Ubidays seemed to suggest the former, but since Ubisoft reps were vague on details this can not be confirmed.
