Ubisoft delays Splinter Cell: Conviction and Red Steel 2 until 2010
Ubisoft’s announced it’s delaying Splinter Cell: Conviction and Red Steel 2 until Q4 2009, which normally tends to mean January – March 2010. The news comes from Ubi’s Q1 2009 financial report.
Q1 is suddenly the new Q4.
As well as them two, Ghost Recon 4 and I Am Alive have been delayed until fiscal 2010 – 2011, which means both games wont be released until April 2010 at the very latest.
“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,” said the company in a statement.
“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.”
