Splinter Cell May Come To PS3

Splinter Cell Conviction’s creative director, Ubisoft Montreal’s Max Beland, has told Edge that there is a possibility that future series outings could appear on multiple console platforms.

Ubisoft currently has a Splinter Cell exclusivity deal with Microsoft that ends with SC Conviction, so when asked whether the Splinter Cell franchise may have a future on PS3, Beland said:


I don’t see why it wouldn’t. I’m not involved in the business deals. I joined Splinter Cell after the exclusivity deal with Microsoft had already been signed, but there’s no reason why Splinter Cell couldn’t be on the PS3. Conviction? No because of the exclusivity deal. I know people keep talking about maybe, maybe not, [but] at Ubisoft Montreal I haven’t seen anyone working on PS3 for Conviction.

[The next game] is open to new deals, If Microsoft wants an exclusivity deal, they don’t call me, it’s Yves [Guillemot, Ubisoft CEO] dealing with the business people. But yeah, I guess we could even be a PS3 exclusive if there’s a deal that makes people happy there.

The chances of Sony wanting to get in a bidding war with Microsoft over exclusivity seem small, however if Microsoft instead focus their efforts on Project Natal then it seems likely that we may eventually see Splinter Cell on PS3 in the future.
