I Am Alive Coming in 2011 as Downloadable Title

The frequently-delayed action game I Am Alive is reportedly going to be released this year, at long last. However, it won’t be in the form that it was originally expected to be in, as the game is said to be coming as a digital download instead of a full, disc-based retail release.
A video on French website JeuxVideo revealed that Ubisoft’s Jade Raymond has stated that the game will be coming to both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as a downloadable game sometime in 2011. This follows a series of delays and changes in developments for the game, which was first announced at E3 in 2008.

I Am Alive sees players assume the role of a character stranded in a post-apocalyptic version of Chicago that has been wrecked by a massive earthquake. Little has been heard about the game over the past year, although the trailer above surfaced last June.

Back in early 2009, original developer Darkworks stated on its website that it was no longer working on the game. Development was moved over to Ubisoft Shanghai, developer of Tom Clancy’s EndWar.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed that the game was still in the works as of January 2010, noting that the developer "has been totally re-engineering the product." Exactly what that meant was unclear at the time. Turning it into a downloadable game would certainly fit that claim, but at least for the time being, Ubisoft isn’t willing to confirm the rumor. The publisher told Eurogamer, "[W]e have not recently announced anything for I Am Alive and we have nothing official to announce at this time."

Speculation has also erupted that the game’s official website would soon be revealing information on the game. It was taken down for maintenance with a message posted that read, "Services will be restored at approximately 5pm GMT/12am EST." That message has since been changed to read that there is no timeframe for the website to be restored, so the site being down could very well just be a coincidence. In any event, we’ll be keeping an eye out for official word on the game from Ubisoft.
