Ubisoft has announced that the PC version of Splinter Cell Conviction has been delayed approximately two weeks for final phase bug fixes and polishing. Rumors around the net have linked the delay to Ubisoft's controversial DRM scheme, which requires you to be connected to the internet at all times to play the game.
"The reason that has been given for the delay is that the extra time was need to polish and debug the game," a Ubisoft spokesperson put down in words. "The slip has not been linked to the DRM. We know this choice is controversial but we feel is justified by the gameplay advantages offered by the system and because most PCs are already connected to the internet..."
The Xbox 360 version is still scheduled for April 13th, while the PC version now has a date of April 27th.
