Ubisoft's upcoming survival game I Am Alive may not be out until 2011, if one of its game designers' online profiles is accurate.
Arch internet-watcher superannuation today dug up the LinkedIn profile of Charles Gaudron, who lists himself as senior game designer at Darkworks, and has the following in his summary section: "I Am Alive (PS3/X360, Ubisoft, 2011)".
Ubisoft told Eurogamer this afternoon that we should refer to its recent financial report for the latest on the date. That put I Am Alive down for release in the company's next fiscal year, which runs from 1st April 2010 to 31st March 2011.
One small issue with all this, of course, is that Darkworks is no longer working on I Am Alive after the game was taken in-house to be completed by Ubisoft Shanghai.
Still, we hope it won't be too long, as we rather liked the look of I Am Alive when it was unveiled at E3 2008, going as far as to make it our pick of this year's adventure games in January before the slip was confirmed.
