Splinter Cell: Conviction Pushed To 2010 To Get Redesigned

There is no official news yet, but the latest issue of Xbox World 360 magazine claims that the next Splinter Cell chapter, Splinter Cell: Conviction, has been delayed to "holidays 2009 or early 2010".

Splinter Cell: Conviction has been in development for a few years already. The game was originally planned for an 2007 release before being delayed to 2008 and then to "post 2008".

According to the magazine, the lengthy delay is needed because the game is getting a design overhaul after being outdated by recent stealth games, namely Ubisoft's own Assassin's Creed.

To the first anon: they're not going for the same game play of AC (which I find pretty amazing, being able to climb on anything and the amount of freedom present in the game). They're going for a similar, though more advanced, crowd blending stealth techniques.According to the videos that were shown this far the game wasn't truly a crowd stealth game. Now it will be though :)

The crowd blending in Assassin's Creed was a joke, you couldn't even call it crowd blending all you did was hold down the button to make Altair look like a scholar and then you could get in a group of scholars and it was like going on a ride because it automatically moved you. Maybe they can do it for real in Conviction, or perhaps they're scrapping it altogether and going back to a classic Splinter Cell type of game.
