Splinter Cell: Conviction release date set in stone

We think Ubisoft means business this time. Instead of simply sending over a press release – or hell, even a snazzy piece of parchment – the publisher’s etched the date “4.13.10” into a rock. An actual, honest-to-goodness rock.

Do we really need to say anything more?

Of course we do. TeamXbox received the telltale slab, which merely displays Splinter Cell: Conviction’s logo on one side, and the date on the other. No muss, fuss, glitz, or glamor. Back to the basics.

We’ll send over a smoke signal and some carrier pigeons to Ubisoft to find out if the date’s worldwide.
