Splinter Cell: Conviction delayed once again

Splinter Cell: ConvictionSam Fisher is so good at going under the radar it now looks like it is affecting his games…literally. Splinter Cell: Conviction has been uncharacteristically absent at the last few Ubisoft events. Rumor is the entire game is receiving a tweaking before being shown to the public again.

With the direction the Splinter Cell series was heading I’m not going to complain. While Double Agent was fun, and had the best iteration of the Splinter Cell multiplayer experience, the rest of the game felt lacking. With Conviction straying even further from the core that made the Splinter Cell games so good and so popular, some extra time can’t be a bad thing.

Naturally, Ubisoft is giving their own explanation beyond the reworked story to appease the fans. Who can blame them? Turns out Ubisoft considers Conviction a risky title. By risky, they mean that there is a possibility that the title can produce a generous amount of money, but there is the risk of spending a similar amount to craft the game.

Now sitting firmly in the 2009 to 2010 time frame, it really is anyone’s guess when we will see Sam Fisher again.
