Splinter Cell: Blacklist PC players won’t have to wait

Tuesday, 22nd January 2013 04:56 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Splinter Cell: Blacklist will release on PC at the same time as it hits consoles, Ubisoft has promised.

The stealth-’em-up was recently delayed into August from an expected northern spring launch.

“The August 20 date is also for the PC version as well,” an Ubisoft representative told Rock Paper Shotgun.

Ubisoft has acquired something of a poor reputation among PC gamers in recent years, with late, missing or criticised ports and unpopular DRM choices, but now seems to be gaining some ground back with more timely and better quality releases and the substitution of UPlay for always-on DRM.

Blacklist is also coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Thanks, Destructoid.

    I will quote what they said for AC3 when they announced dates:

    GameSpy: So when’s the PC release date?

    Ubisoft PR: October 30th.

    GameSpy: Yeah, but when’s the real PC release date?

    Ubisoft PR: It’s October 30th.

    GameSpy: Uh huh. And can you say that with a straight face?

    Ubisoft PR: You can ask me as many times as you like, but the answer will be the same.

    GameSpy: Very well, let’s move on. So, when will you announce the delay of the PC version?

    Ubisoft PR: …

    :D

    If this is true, great! I highly doubt it though, hopefully they can rebuild their rep and regain trust.
