Splinter Cell: Conviction Delayed To 2010
Ubisoft announced its first fiscal quarter sales this morning. Among the news that the company saw a 50% decline in sales, some of its stronger titles have been pushed to 2010.
Splinter Cell: Conviction will now be released in the fourth quarter fiscal calendar year, which beings on January 1, 2010.
Other early 2010 titles, Ghost Recon and I am Alive, are now slated for a fiscal year 2010-11 release.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said the decision to delay the titles will have a better financial impact on the company long-term.
"We are disappointed that we have to postpone the release of several major games but we consider that this choice is the best one in the long-term interests of Ubisoft," he said.
