New Splinter Cell: Blacklist trailer reveals a summer release date

The good news: Splinter Cell: Blacklist has an official release date. The bad news: it’s not coming out until August.

Back when Ubisoft first unveiled Splinter Cell: Blacklist at E3 last year, they announced that the game would be released at some point in the spring of 2013, but it appears they’ve pushed it back a bit. This could be a good thing or a bad thing — we’re not sure at this point.

Regardless of all that, this new trailer is pretty badass. In addition to showing off some of Fischer’s new stealth takedowns, it serves as a good introduction to the game’s overarching plot. 

Blacklist is scheduled to be released on August 20th, so be sure to check back for more trailers as the date draws nearer.
