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 we’ve seen so far.

"Splinter Cell Conviction is certainly not canned, despite what the Internet rumour mill says, and won’t look significantly different to what you’ve seen before," he said.

"The gameplay’s evolved a lot but the visual direction is simply much better than what you’ve seen."

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