Okay, I understand it's your franchise, and you can go wherever you want with it. SC Conviction is what it is, and no amount of *****ing and whining will change that at this point.
That being said, It's hard to imagine how you could expect hardcore fans of the series not to feel a bit "overlooked", to say the least. I'm only one person, and I don't expect the industry to bend over backward to accomodate my own specific tastes, but I'm not the only one who feels this way. That's why I would ask you to please at least consider making the next Slinter Cell an actual Splinter Cell game. Thank you.
