Splinter Cell: Double Agent Delay

Ubisoft Entertainment reports third quarter revenue and updates 2005-2006 fiscal year outlook has the company's latest financials, revealing along the way that Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Double Agent will be delayed until September 2006 after being planned for a spring release:
In addition, the rescheduling to September 2006 of the launch of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Double Agent™ is meant to release the title on all platforms simultaneously, including the Microsoft Xbox® 360 that should have a much larger installed base by that time. This will also enable to maintain the highest quality for which Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell® is recognized. This rescheduling will ensure the best return from the coming release as well as from future sequels of this brand over time.

I wonder if the big negative backlash of Lockdown, which apparently failed to please console players (and naturally let down the PC players as it has less to do with the old R6 games and plays more like Republic Commando), has led them to rethink what they were doing with these games.

Why do these idiots get the idea that to increase the sales of a successful game they have to SCREW it up?

Its probably garnered so much less-than-positive press because they gave everything away that the entire game is being retooled...


You know, this has been one my biggest gripe about games that are at all popular. The hype usually reveals anything and everything decent in the plot before the release. They started out pretty cool with revealing Sam Fisher had left the NSA under dubious circumstances and his daughter dead. Then they just open the flood gate and damn...unless the "Double Agent" portion of the titles refers to a completely different twist, they pretty much just killed a great plotline.

This is really good news. I was getting worried we would only have 10 WWII shooters and 4 modern tactical shooters for 06. 15 is such a nice number afterall.

Hey 3 edits for my sarcasm

So, this makes what... 5 or 6 Splinter Cell games coming out this year? Soon they'll be up to one a month.

This sucks, but if it means the game will be done well, I can work. I think this is more because Microsoft blew the Xbox360 launch so badly and nobody has one yet.

It won't even feel like Spring without a Sam Fisher game to play. I'm utterly disappointed.

yeah, they are milking it, but unlike, say the tomb raider series, these get better with every release, imho. it may actually be starting to get stale with this release. i don't know if the "edgier" story line will help.
