Splinter Cell: DA Delayed ‘Til September

UbiSoft today revealed that Splinter Cell Double Agent has been delayed on all platforms including the Xbox 360 until September 2006, the game was originally due for release this Spring. While the release may come as a disapointment to many, it actually comes as a relief to me, hopefully UbiSoft use time wisely to polish the game. UbiSoft released this statement via Team Xbox

“[i]Ubisoft is extending the launch of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Double Agent in order to deliver the highest quality gaming experience. The additional development time will allow for a simultaneous worldwide launch on all platforms and will allow Ubisoft’s development teams to push the technical boundaries on each platform.

Ubisoft is confident that Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Double Agent will revolutionize and reinvent the spy action genre by introducing an unprecedented double agent concept and an entirely new breed of game play that adds an exciting new dimension to the gaming experience.[/i]”
