"Instead of the previously planned third fiscal quarter, Splinter Cell: Conviction and Red Steel 2 are now scheduled for a fourth fiscal quarter release."

Oh...

Doesnt Ubisoft's fourth quarter fiscal year end in March???

Besides Splinter Cell needs to avoid Oct 13th, Game of the Year Releases that day.

@ Pirate Thom 2.2

Thats what I thought. Splinter Cell 2010 is likely

JonnyBigBoss2492d ago

Good point. GOTY Uncharted 2 and the highly anticipated title Forza 3 both come out in October. Not to mention that other solid titles are set for November/December. Looks like everything is shifting to early 2010.

ShabzS2492d ago

dont forget mordern warfare 2 as well ... definite contender for goty ... it basically shoved bioshock out of the way ....

damn very dissapointed in ubi and ms ..... was really looking forward to sc

morganfell2492d ago

Ubisoft decided it would be better to send Sam up against Kratos...

@shbzhar

Dont get mad at MS, that delay is clearly a Ubi decision. Probably game needs more polishing time/fixes to be up to standard. Another thing is that they already have AC2 (blockbuster) hitting shelves at some time in November, probably Ubi just wanted to get a heavy hitter like SC:C to push their last quarter profits.

Anyway I can feel your pain (and Kionic's) this delay would be equivalent to UC2 delay to 2010, totally disheartening and render the 360 lineup very thin.

OmarJA2492d ago

Ain't that a b!tch...

Oh well, looks like the PS3 is the best console for exclusives again.

Traveler2492d ago

That sucks. It's not just getting delayed on the 360 but also the PC, which is the version I was planning on getting.

This also means that the first half of 2010 is going to be even more packed with good games and I won't be able to afford even a fraction of all of the games I want at that time. C'est la vie.

I don't think it means 2010, I think it moves it from September to October.

KionicWarlord2222492d ago

Of course silly.

It didn't say first quarter .

PirateThom2492d ago

Yeah, but Ubisoft's fiscal dates are different from calender dates:

June 30, 2009 was the end of their first quarter, according to the full press release:

http://www.ubisoftgroup.com...

September would be 2nd Quarter
December would be 3rd Quarter
March would be 4th Quarter

KionicWarlord2222492d ago

My god..

Now you have me worried.

mithril2492d ago

ubi say that:

"Instead of the previously planned third fiscal quarter, Splinter Cell: Conviction and Red Steel 2 are now scheduled for a fourth fiscal quarter release."

on one post you say that :

I don't think it means 2010, I think it moves it from September to October.

and you say :

March would be end of 4th Quarter, if mars is end of 4th Quater the begining is january how ubi can release game on 4th Quater in 2009 ?????

PirateThom2492d ago

I had misread the report in that first post.

..got everybody running for the hills, smart move if you ask me, but now their games are going to have to go up against GOW3. LOL maybe the devs need more time to Port the PS3 version of Conviction for a day and date release ;P

raztad2492d ago

I dont think so. MW2 release date is known for ages, why 2K or Ubi are changing their calendar just now?

Look carefully, from 2K: Mafia2, Bioshock2 and Red Dead R all of they delayed, but do you really were expecting all those games to come out in such a short period of time, all those heavy hitters? that would be financial suicide for 2010.

Regarding SC:C, I smell technical issues/more time to polish the game. A decision so late in the party makes me think this delay is an emergency measure.

That said, there is already several games struggling for gamers money. October is EPIC.

morganfell2492d ago

I don't think it is MW2 that has people scared.

KionicWarlord2222492d ago

Wow..its delyayed

I cant belive this....I will kill myself now .

*leaves *

callahan092492d ago (Edited 2492d ago )

It's disappointing, but there's plenty to play between now and then. Patience! Don't go hurting yourself, now. I wouldn't be surprised if Assassin's Creed 2 is part of the reason for the delay. It really doesn't make sense for Ubisoft to release both games right around the same time. They are sort of similar, except for the setting.

KionicWarlord2222492d ago

...Next will be forza 3...

oh no....

callahan092492d ago

Nah, Forza 3 is probably going to come out on time. I've seen no reason to believe it's not on schedule. Splinter Cell on the other hand, well they've never been able to put down a solid date on this thing so it doesn't surprise me at all that they're still having trouble picking a date.

Omega42492d ago

WHAT!!!!

I bet the game will be completed this year as well, they just want to delay it for so their sales report look better.

Cant MS just pay the difference for releasing it this year
