Splinter Cell: Conviction community development manager, Chris Easton, has told Videogaming247 today that not only is work on the game well under way, but that the "visual direction is simply much better" than what weíve seen so far.

"Splinter Cell Conviction is certainly not canned, despite what the Internet rumour mill says, and wonít look significantly different to what youíve seen before," he said.

"The gameplayís evolved a lot but the visual direction is simply much better than what youíve seen."

Easton added: "The gameplay has evolved from what we showed at Ubidays last year and when you see it again itíll be worth the wait."
