Ubisoft has told Eurogamer Splinter Cell: Conviction was delayed last night was to "add more polish".
"The game looks brilliant, but we want it to be awesome," said a rep from the company.
Conviction was down for an confirmed date of February 26, but Ubisoft pulled the date from the game, now pegging it for April.
A specific date wasn't forthcoming from the company last night.
And don't forget the Collector's Edition: it's got a Sam statue.
