Ever wonder where Splinter Cell Conviction was? Did it get lost in the woods during a afternoon walk of stealth dispare, maybe? Why wasn’t it apart of the Xbox 360 Spring Showcase? After all, it is a Xbox 360 exclusive. Well, it turns out that Splinter Cell Conviction maybe a little bit on the rocker by word of Xbox World 360 Mag.
According to CVG, the game is facing a “back to the drawing board” moment as it may not be seeing the light of day until 2009, if not 2010. A decision that is speculatively a surprise decision, this is not good news for stealth action fan’s who may be standing on the sidelines as they watch “that” other stealth”ish” game from Konami release long before then.
Did Assassin’s Creed show up Ubisoft’s own next in line? Or is it that the game’s new crowd dynamic gameplay did not match the past Splinter Cell pedigree the way Ubisoft had hoped for. For now, time will tell as this will hopefully get cleared up at Ubisoft’s UbiDays soon.
