Today, Ubisoft announced that they are to delay several upcoming titles. Splitter Cell Conviction included.
It was originally planned for release in Ubisoft's third fiscal quarter, but will now land in the fourth, taking it to next year.
Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot said:
"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."
Seems as though the Christmas rush is slowing right down!
