Splinter Cell: Conviction dated

Update: mid-April date confirmed for Europe.

Update: Ubisoft has confirmed to Eurogamer that the game will be released in Europe on 16th April.

Original story: Ubisoft has said that Splinter Cell: Conviction will be released in the US on 13th April.

Well, that's not entirely true - Ubisoft has sent stones with "4.13.10" written on them to US journalists.

Apparently the stones were unable to comment on a European release date, so we've contacted Ubisoft for clarification.

But US retailers agree with their domestic stones on the 13th April date, so we would imagine a European slot the same week: probably 16th April.

Ubisoft has previously confirmed an April release for the game following the latest of many delays.

The game's due out on PC and Xbox 360.
