Assassin's, Splinter Cell backed with DLC

Late-2009 sequels will receive extra bits.

Ubisoft's loving the DLC! That's the word from its latest conference call thingy following financial results.

As reported by Kotaku, the company said it plans to make downloadable extras available for Assassin's Creed 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction and James Cameron's Avatar after release.

All three games are due out in the third quarter of Ubisoft's current financial year, the publisher reconfirmed, which puts them on shelves in the last three calendar months of 2009. Assassin's Creed 2 may well be out in November.

Elsewhere in the earnings call, Ubisoft reiterated that Ghost Recon 4, I Am Alive and RUSE will be released in the first three calendar months of 2010, while Red Steel and the new Shaun White game (see elsewhere) are down for the tail end of this year.
