PC Splinter Cell Conviction Delayed

Amazon's listing for the PC version of Splinter Cell Conviction now lists an April 27, 2010 release date, a two week delay from the carved in stone April 13 release date announced just last month for the stealth action sequel. This is noted on Big Download, who confirmed this delay with Ubisoft, though they could not get a reason (for this frequently delayed game originally planned for 2007 it may have just be habit).

As for the delay, who knows... the DRM works, so they can't say it is piracy concerns. Perhaps it's just a general last minute "oh crap" with some PC issues, as has happened before with secondary concern ports.

Yea, seeing as how their DRM is working, I don't think the delay has anything to do with piracy or protecting console sales, as has been the trend in the past. They probably need more time to work on the game. I'm not totally convinced on whether to get this one or not. The 2 player co-op sounds fun though, so I just might go for it if another friend of mine does.
