I Am Alive has been kept hidden in Ubisoft’s cupboard for years. First announced in 2008, with this trailer, it’s been through a bit of a journey. The original developers, Darkworks, left the apparently almost complete project after a “mutual decision”, with duties taken to Ubisoft’s own Shanghai studio. Come 2009 screenshots were leaked, but little more was heard. The last time Ubi set a release date was for last year, and rumours of something happening by the end of this Summer have proven unfounded. And now a leak has happened again, this time a slightly unfinished trailer. Which you can see below.
The game has previously been slated for 360, PS3 and PC, although of course little official has been confirmed with a game Ubisoft have seemed to avoid promoting. In January 2010 Gamasutra reported that Ubisoft’s CEO, Yves Guillemot, said that in 2010 they were “totally re-engineering the product”, which involved putting it into the Splinter Cell engine. Then in February this year the same site revealed that the game was going to be a digital download released “later this year”. And that’s as far as we’ve got.
Now we have this apparently official but unreleased trailer:
So runny climby jumpy shooty then.
