Splinter Cell delayed for "polish"

But for how long Ubisoft can't say.

Ubisoft has told Eurogamer that Splinter Cell: Conviction was delayed to add "a bit more polish", and not because Q1 2010 is unconventionally bursting with big-name releases.

"The game looks brilliant, but we want it to be awesome," a spokesperson added.

The move was made overnight, when Sam Fisher's latest romp went from a confirmed 26th February release into the murky waters of FY2010, which begins 1st April 2010.

Ubisoft could not tell Eurogamer how long said polishing will take.
