UPDATE: 2:00 p.m. PST - Ubisoft just posted an update on Twitter, saying, "Freezing issues with Splinter Cell: Conviction have been resolved. Happy sneaking."
Attention Splinter Cell: Conviction players. Ubisoft has some important information to share with you about the wide-spread freezing issues that are cropping up in the game: avoid the release-day update!
Turns out that the title update Ubisoft put out today is causing something funky to happen during the game’s second mission, resulting in the always appreciated game freeze. Ubisoft is well aware of the issue, and posted the following message on the game’s official forum:
“We are currently investigating a freezing issue seen in the title update that was released for Splinter Cell: Conviction on the Xbox 360 this morning. This issue only happens after installing the update and we have asked Microsoft to remove the update for the time being until we can determine the cause and fix the issue. If you have installed the update please remove it and play through the impacted mission again.”
A number of readers reported encountering the freezing issue, so hopefully removing the update will solve those problems.
Did Ubisoft’s directions fix the problem for you?
