Sam Fisher off his leash and in this new Splinter Cell trailer

"Understand this: The Sam Fisher you knew is dead." Spolier alert! Nah, he's very much alive (albeit starring in a game that's delayed yet again), and this latest trailer for Splinter Cell: Conviction features one Victor Coste, private military contractor and veritable encyclopedia on all things that make a (now) former Third Echelon agent go ker-azy.

And man, can he lay it on. "He's off the leash and going for answers," Coste says, in an extremely serious tone. We think the first question Fisher's going to ask this guy when he catches him is, "Just how many times have you watched The Bourne Identity, anyway?"
