Ubisoft have announced that the PC version of Splinter Cell: Conviction will be delayed by 2 weeks. It will be available on the 30th April, two weeks after the Xbox 360 version will go live.
It isn’t known what the reasons are, but lately it’s fair to say that Ubisoft have had soem problems with PC games. Since they announced their controversial DRM they have been the target of hackers and it has disrupted releases such as Assassin’s Creed 2 and Silent Hunter 5.
The delays could be due to some last minute tweaking of the DRM, which is something Ubisoft are determined to go ahead with despite a raft of negative publicity and even criticism in the industry from luminaries such as Gabe Newell.
The demo was released on Xbox Live yesterday.
