'Splinter Cell: Blacklist' will be available on PC day one

Ubisoft have promised that PC gamers will not have to wait to get their hands on Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

The game will be available at retail on the first day it releases along with the console versions. The title was recently delayed to August from a late-spring launch, but this probably makes up for it.

A Ubisoft representative confirmed the news to Rock Paper Shotgun.

Ubisoft's past titles that have supported a PC version have been released substantially later than their console counterparts. So you'll excuse gamers when they're a bit skeptical about this news.

Blacklist is out on August 20.
