Ubisoft has revealed that both Splinter Cell: Conviction and Red Steel 2 have been delayed until the first three calendar months of 2010.

The publisher's results for its financial first quarter - April to June - also said that the new Ghost Recon game and I Am Alive have slipped as well.

Those were both down for the fourth fiscal quarter (January to March 2010), but "will now strengthen the line-up for fiscal 2010-11" instead.

Splinter Cell: Conviction looked in rude health at E3, where it was a lynchpin of the Microsoft conference, and we're expecting to bring you our hands-on thoughts soon. Ubisoft was putting a brave face on it, pointing out that it still has Assassin's Creed 2, which is due out on 20th November.

The publisher's financial first-quarter sales were down 50 per cent, which Ubisoft king Yves Guillemot blamed on a "very sharp slowdown in our sales for Nintendo DS as well as sales of back-catalogue titles, in the context of a market that is tougher than anticipated".
