Splinter Cell: Conviction PC slips two weeks

Ubisoft just slipped the PC version of Splinter Cell: Conviction from April 16 to April 30.

The 360 version remains unaffected at April 16.

The news comes after another turbulent day for Ubi’s PC games, with Assassin’s Creed II and Silent Hunter V being removed from Steam in the UK as the result of a “business discussion” between the publisher and Valve.

Ubisoft has been well-reported recently in relation to DRM on its PC titles, which now need a constant internet connection to be played. EA decided to follow the model this week with C&C4.

We’re asked for a comment on the slip.

    Is the delay only related to the UK or also to mainland Europe?

    Ubisoft games are junk any! Maybe you should pay the media to lie some more…..maybe that’s the best way to get people by your junk.

    they don’t even have the balls to say it’s because of the sales/piracy/DRM, because if they said that it’s to “polish out the game” everyone would say what have you been doing for the last 2 years (or more) with all the constant delays

    the reason Ubisoft is such console fanboys is because they know it takes real game devs skills to be in the pc market……that why ubisoft is why you find alot ubisoft games on the wii….hahahahah

    I do hate that this pretty much ALWAYS happens with PC games if it’s coming out on console too. How can they not realize that they need just that little bit extra time to… to… hell I don’t even know what they do. Just optimizing I guess…
