Ubisoft CEO Makes Several Delays Official


In the face of slumping sales (dropping a whopping 51%), Ubisoft made a few more discouraging comments concerning upcoming IPs.

According to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, as outlined in the company’s quarterly fiscal report, three important game titles have been pushed back.

For starters, Splinter Cell: Conviction will now hit store shelves in Ubisoft’s fiscal Q4 – i.e. sometime after January 1, 2010.

Moreover, fan-favorite Ghost Recon 4 and action-survival title I Am Alive are also getting pushed back to a rather vague release window of fiscal year 2010-11.

Finally, Red Steel 2, which, according to IGN “was scheduled for release this calendar year,” has also been delayed to the fourth quarter of this fiscal year. That means it will miss the all-important holiday window.

Guillemot expressed regret in the face of the news when he stated, “We are disappointed that we have to postpone the release of several major games, but we consider that this choice is the best one in the long-term interests of Ubisoft.”
