Previously pencilled in for a February release, Ubisoft's Splinter Cell: Conviction and R.U.S.E. have both been postponed into the company's next fiscal year, with Conviction now due out in April.

The delays were announced in a press release today, in which the company revised its fiscal year 2009/2010 performance estimates download, citing the delays as on factor in the adjusted outlook.

"The postponed release dates for Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction™ and R.U.S.E™, which were previously scheduled for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009-10, and will now be released in fiscal year 2010-11. Splinter Cell Conviction™ is now expected to hit the stores in April 2010."

The release gave no hint as to when the real-time strategy game R.U.S.E. will be released. The company's next fiscal year begins on April 1.


    FFS. Is Conviction *ever* going to see release?

    Woohooo It begins. The SC delays that is. I remember the ones for DA, I just hope this won't be the same steaming pile of manure.

    SOAB!! I have been dying to play Conviction since they first released gameplay footage.

    I guess that will give me a bit more time to finish Mass Effect 2 and Bioshock 2 :)

    releasing a game AFTER FF13 is a bad sales idea.
    people will be busy with that game for some time to come

    You're kidding. Conviction better be worth it if they're gonna keep putting it off like this. perhaps developers shouldn't even bother promoting a game until it's almost finished.

    i actullay have to say i am happy about this... I wrote a list of games i need to get over the next 3 months and there were over 10 titles on there! (And I'm still playing dragon age!) So any respite is a good thing!

    I know thats only like 2 months - bUT WTF!
    I thought GT5 was a joke... this is getting ridiculous. Mainly cause i wanna play it more than GT5 and i've been waiting since like 2007.

      Agreed mate. The first 3 months of this year are absolutely packed! I can't ever remember a Jan/Feb/March period featuring so many quality releases!

      Just got my platinum trophy on ACII, now moving on to Darksiders, and will hopefully have that finished by the time Mass Effect 2 is out...whew!

    Damn. I've had this game on preorder since April last year, back when the release date was supposed to be September last year.
    This sucks.

    I've been waiting for this since the leak back in September 2006. I'm fully prepared to be disappointed when it finally comes out.

    At least I'll have more time to play AvP before the Semester starts.

    God damnit
