Splinter Cell Conviction has been through a few different phases of development, disappearing for over a year – and now it seems it’s finally coming out.
The game focuses on Sam Fishers fall from grace. Based upon the trailer he has been set up for some crime or other and he now needs to clear his name. The whole thing has a very Bourne Identity feel to it, with Sam openly walking around amongst crowds of people.
My guess is that it’s using the same tech as Assassins Creed since the crowd of people and the dense city scapes fit it really well. I hope it still has the complex, wonderfully lit, interiors of the earlier games in the series to keep the sneaking alive and well.
