Yesterday it was revealed that Splinter Cell: Blacklist had been delayed in the US. Today Ubisoft has confirmed that the UK release has slipped too, to August 23rd.

So yeah, boo.

Here’s the latest trailer for the game. It’s got a bit of gameplay, some very dramatic music, a few cut-scene snippets and some US Presidents in it. Yay.

Maybe they are delaying it to put Michael Ironside back in it? Nope? :( Oh. Ok then.

Fine with me. Already have 8 games pre ordered for feb-march so I don't need another in April. August is usually quiet for games so it's nice to have a good title late summer.

August is a perfect time for this to come out. Since no other big name games are coming out during that month.

Meh wasn't all that excited for this game after the trailers I saw. So this doesn't bother me a bit.

I will give it a try nonetheless, but

@ 9 - I seem to remember Conviction being delayed for quite some time, and that was like shit with a nice bow wrapped around it.

For all of Miyamoto's genius, he has no idea sometimes. :p

@17 Of course not...but if you used a time delay wisely it only helps, as with L.A. Noire for example. Ubisoft is not a company that puts out consistently subpar titles. Quite the opposite actually, so there's nothing to worry about. The big issue with this game is the changeover in voice acting but ya know...everybody gets old some time.

Still quite bitter about the lack of Ironside if I'm honest. In all seriousness, I really don't understand the hate for Conviction. It is easily in my top ten games of all time, maybe even top five. Much better than DA in my opinion, although never played the original, Chaos Theory or Pandora Tomorrow.

@4 I feel you, man - I can't get over it. Michael Ironside IS Splinter Cell. He will always be THE Sam Fisher, but now we have some 28 year old kid doing the voice work and motion capture; they said that having the motion capture person also do the voice work made things flow better, but that's bullshit. He will be sorely missed...
Anyway, Sam Fisher was approaching 50 in the first three games, and then in Double Agent, he's basically a 30 year old man, and in Conviction, he's *maybe* 40... And now he's in his late twenties, flipping and hopping around like a douche bag. I guess there won't be any more Bengay jokes from Grim in this one...

pretty gutted about ironside, dont get me wrong, but i dont think it will detract from the game. After an hour of play people will have forgotten about it completely... Still seriously looking forward to getting my hands on this.

I guess sometimes a delay can mean good things. Still I am a little disappointed from this.
