I Am Alive is Alive But Only Just

Quite an eventful week for Ubisoft, huh? So much so that with everything going on, it's easy to let something slip by. You know, like the lack of a mention for I Am Alive in Ubisoft's fiscal year 2010-2011 plans.
Let's face it though, we've hardly heard much about it. Aside from the E3 2008 trailer and the appearance in GamesTM, the rest has been rumour and hearsay. Could this mean that the title has fallen out of favour with the French publisher? Quite simply, no. But you won't see it for sometime.
Ubisoft told IGN that the game won't ship in their fiscal 2010-2011 year, but it is still coming, just not as soon as they once had hoped.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot stated in a conference call, "We have been totally re-engineering the product, so it is still on the way. It will use the Splinter Cell engine. We think it can become a very good quality product."
So it seems that I Am Alive is currently on life support. Surely it can't take too many more beatdowns though.
