If BioShock 2, Mafia II, Heavy Rain, and many other big-name titles weren’t enough for you, here’s another. Ubisoft has announced today in their fiscal report that the highly anticipated Xbox 360 title, Splinter Cell: Conviction, has been pushed back to 2010. The game “was previously planned for the third fiscal quarter, will now be released in the fourth fiscal quarter.”
“We are disappointed that we have to postpone the release of several major games but we consider that this choice is the best one in the long-term interests of Ubisoft. Lastly, we are having to adjust our full-year targets to take into account the fall in business over the first half. The excellent response to our games at E3, as well as the high buzz generated for titles such as Assassin’s Creed 2, Splinter Cell Conviction and Avatar, reinforce our belief that the company can achieve strong growth in the second half of the fiscal year.””
The end of the year game lineup seems to be slipping game after game into early 2010.
