Alexandre Parizeau, producer on Splinter Cell: Conviction, has joined the team at Ubisoft Toronto to assist with the project. Using funding from Ubisoft and the Ontario government, Ubisoft Toronto will be able to jump right into triple-A development instead of start-up with "small projects, [for] Nintendo DS or portables," according to Raymond.
Splinter Cell: Conviction was released in March for the Xbox 360 and PC. No time frame is given to either project.
