'Splinter Cell: Blacklist' gets a new trailer confirming the release date.
Nestled just after the montage of Presidential oaths leading up to Splinter Cell's President Caldwell is the news that 'Splinter Cell: Blacklist' has slipped from a spring 2013 window to August 20th in North America.
The August 20th day refers to the 360 and PS3 versions. The PC version has been confirmed, but will likely come after. Other platform versions have been theorized but not announced.
