Splinter Cell PC delay not down to DRM
Ubisoft are once again keen to stress that a game's slipping release date is not due to their problematic and highly unpopular DRM system.
This time it is the turn of Splinter Cell Conviction on the PC, which has slipped two whole weeks later than the Xbox 360 version due out on April 16th.
A Ubisoft spokesperson told Eurogamer: "The reason that has been given for the delay is that the extra time was need to polish and debug the game. The slip has not been linked to the DRM."
True or not, the DRM is still hindering PC gamers attempts to play titles like Settlers 7 and Assassin's Creed II with connection issues.
