Ubisoft has delayed the release of I Am Alive until its next financial year, which runs from the start of April until the end of March 2010.

Yesterday the publisher issued a release schedule that said the Darkworks-developed adventure game could be out before then, but this evening CEO Yves Guillemot told investors it had been "postponed until next year, as the game needs more work".

Guillemot subsequently told investors that a sequel to Wii launch title Red Steel would be released in the coming financial year.

Ubisoft's latest financial report has also reiterated that Assassin's Creed 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction will be released before the end of March 2010, along with new Ghost Recon and Anno games.

Other games on the slate for the publisher's coming financial year include James Cameron's Avatar, a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game, the sequel to Arthur and the Invisibles, one other licensed game, three new brands and more casual titles.

Ubisoft also announced worldwide figures for a number of its Christmas releases last year. Shaun White Snowboarding has shipped 2.3 million units to retailers, while Far Cry 2 did 2.9 million, Rayman Raving Rabbids 1.5 million and Prince of Persia 2.2 million.
