Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat has said to Videogamer that when Splinter Cell: Conviction is released, it will be "worth the wait".
He was speaking at the premiere of Assassin's Creed: Lineage, where he already hinted that a PS3 version of Conviction isn't out of the question just yet.
"The answer definitely is that Splinter Cell: Conviction will be a better game in February than any time earlier. The level of polish that we are achieving as we speak is definitely worth the wait," said Mallat.
"You know Ubisoft is committed to quality. We apply that to all our games. Splinter Cell is not excluded from that."
Conviction is exclusive to the Xbox 360 and PC. It releases on February 26 in the UK.
