If it’s not one thing, it’s another, they say. But in this case, it’s both one thing and another. First, we found out that we won’t be able to take Splinter Cell Conviction for a test run on the PC, and now comes word that the PC version of Ubisoft’s latest grizzled stealth-shooter needs a couple extra weeks on the grill.
Originally set to launch on April 13, the game will now drop on April 27. Amazon.com originally broke the news, and a Ubisoft rep confirmed its veracity with Big Download. Sorry folks – this one’s set in stone.
As for why Conviction was delayed, Ubisoft wouldn’t say. Generally, these little release hiccups are due to hang-ups in the certification process, so we’re gonna guess it’s just something mundane like that. Sorry, conspiracy theorists, no dice here. Besides, don’t you already have enough evidence to justify that tinfoil hat?
