Ubisoft’s Canadian division CEO, Yannis Mallat, said during the GameON finance conference that as far as the console version of the Splinter Cell franchise is concerned, it is to remain an Xbox 360 exclusive for the time being.

“Until further notice [it's staying on Xbox 360],” Mallat told GamingUnion. “However, I’m only the one making the games, you should talk to the people in Paris [for confirmation].”

Previous iterations of the franchise appeared on Sony and Nintendo systems after debuting on the original Xbox.

    Give it up… everyone knows it’s going to be out on the PS3 at some point. Just say no-comment and then we’ll all act surprised when it happens. :)

    It’s like they’ve got the franchise on some sort of yo-yo…

    My educated guess: after Double Agent almost killed the franchise due to it’s crapness, Ubisoft wants to wait and see how Conviction is received and how well it performs on the 360. If it does well, they will spend the necessary effort and money to produce a PS3 version. If it performs terribly then they won’t bother.

    Ah ha, so that’s a timed exclusive then. See you in a couple months.

    Just like Bioshock didn’t happen.
    Just like Fallout’s DLC is exclusive.

    I know which Mike is the imposter.

    BUT, does it even matter? It’s clearly timed exclsuive, THAT is all that matters.

    It’s irrelevant once it’s out. Certainly not if you like games, but in the console war it’s irrelevant.
