Splinter Cell Conviction: True Microsoft Exclusive

It seems some third-party developers are still interested in exclusive, big budget titles. Ubisoft recently conducted a fan Q & A on their forums (via VG247), and one question answered was regarding the apparent console exclusivity surrounding Splinter Cell Conviction.

"Splinter Cell Conviction is a true Microsoft exclusive title and there are no plans to have Splinter Cell Conviction on other platforms," said Ubisoft.

The company continued to explain their reasoning, citing the fact the franchise appeared on the Xbox.

"There are several reasons behind this choice. First of all, Splinter Cell games are historically linked with Microsoft platforms. The first Splinter Cell on the original Xbox was one of the first games to fully exploit the console’s technical possibilities. At that time, Microsoft really believed in the game potential and provided strong support to promote it. So, there is a ’link of heart’ between the franchise and the platform. Some games are like this (think of Final Fantasy for instance)," they said.


"The second reason behind this choice is purely linked to production. Having a single target platform means that we can optimize the game even further, because we only have one type of - console - hardware to support," they added.

It will be interesting to see if Conviction remains strictly on the 360. A ’timed exclusivity’ seems more likely nowadays. We’ve contacted both Ubisoft and Sony to comment on this story and we’ll update as soon as we hear back.
