The Tom Clancy Splinter Cell series hasn’t had the happiest development history, what with Splinter Cell: Conviction having been delayed time and again for several years. Now that same hoodoo has afflicted new title Blacklist, as it too has now been delayed.
Ubisoft have revealed that the game will now be released on August 20 in North America and August 23 in Europe, rather than the previously-announced date of March 29. The new release date was shown off in a brand new trailer which you can see at the bottom of this article.
This newest instalment in the long-running stealth series will be developed by Ubisoft Toronto, which is their first crack at developing a Sam Fisher game. Featuring the traditional single player campaign, a co-op mode as also featured in Conviction and a new Spies Vs. Mercenaries mode.
Rumours abound of an additional Wii U version of the game, but nothing has been confirmed on that front yet – but stay tuned to GodisaGeek.com for any future news and updates.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist will be released on August 23 in Europe and August 20 in North America for Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
