Ubisoft has confirmed to VideoGamer.com that Splinter Cell: Conviction, announced as a PC and Xbox 360 title, will not be coming to PS3 and will not be coming out on April 1, as previously rumoured. Yesterday online reports suggested the game was set to appear on Sony's next-gen console - a rumour sparked by UK specialist retailer GAME, which listed the title on its website.
However, speaking to VideoGamer.com today, a spokesperson for Ubisoft clarified the situation, saying the retailer made a mistake, the game was not coming out on the PS3 and laughed off the suggested April 1 release date. "This is just a mistake by the retailer. The game is not coming out on PS3 nor is it coming out on April 1. We're sticking to the original announcement", said the spokesperson.
The news will come as some disappointment to PS3 owners who had hoped to see the title appear on Sony's console. In November last year Ubisoft announced that Splinter Cell: Conviction had slipped, with a vague fiscal 2008-2009 (April 08-March 09) release date penned. Unfortunately Ubisoft couldn't offer a more concrete date at this time.
