I wonder if ubisoft knows about the release of next gen consoles. Why would they release it around the time the new console will be released? Are we getting new consoles this year hmm?

Maybe a game for current systems & a game for next gen or worst case scenario they push release date back

Indeed. It wouldn't be the first time a video game was released in time for it to be cross-generation.

Who said next gen consoles are coming out this year? It's nothing more than a rumour

@UBI Soft,

Please dont ruin this game & the awesome co-op capability Splinter Cell:Conviction had by making this game multiplatform. You know, the way you guys efed-up Ghost Recon:FS.

I'm glad you guys postponed Rainbow Six:Patriots. There is no way that game can have the same fantastic co-op style that the Rainbow Six:Vegas games had on the 360. It just wasn't possible with the Split RAM of the PS3. Rainbow Six: Patriots should be moved to PS4 & 720, thanks.

UBI, dont ruin this game!
Also, I'm PISSED you pushed the game back to August!

Ubi already ruined the franchise with conviction.

Conviction SHOULS have been a seperate ip.

I quite liked Conviction. I had a lot of fun with it, and it felt like Splinter Cell to me.

It might be the first of many cross gen games.

as long as it DOES NOT have the TERRIBLE black and white shots ever again, i may be able to forgive them for what they did to splinter cell with the last game.

that was quite possibly, the worst design decision i have seen in a major game

and please stop writing what to do in hundred foot letters on the damn buildings, a map and a journal that i can access by hitting Ctrl key is fine (select button on console)

mark and execute is TERRIBLE, get rid of it, stop making the damn game so casual!

if you want to do all the horrible hand holding and gaudy writing everywhere, make a ultra easy mode

leave normal splinter cell the way it has been for ever!!

Blacklist is what ConViction should of been.

Ironside's gone. No Lambert. Probably no purchase for me.

Well it looks like they were between a rock and a hard place, release it in the middle of all those other hyped AAA titles, or release it after the next gen offerings from Microsoft and Sony have been announced.

August will still be a few months away from the release of those consoles, but games released that close to new consoles usually underperformed.

I probably wont be buying any current gen games that late in the year.

Fantastic trailer.. it's really good to see the franchise mix the old themes that I'm sure fans have missed along with a host of new ideas.

I saw the in-game demo at EXPO 2012 and was absolutely impressed.

Graphics also simply amazing.
