Upcoming disaster game I Am Alive was being developed by independent French Darkworks for publisher Ubisoft. Was because Ubisoft has yanked Darkworks off the project and is finishing the game itself.
Multi-platform I Am Alive is set in Chicago after a major earthquake. It's a more realistic take on the survival genre, showing in first-person how one man survives a catastrophic event that could indeed happen.
The game was slated for release this spring, but has been pushed back to March 2010.
According to Ubisoft, "In order to respect the new launch date for this ambitious title, and Darkworks having other obligations, we have mutually decided to complete development of I Am Alive at Ubisoft Shanghai, as the two studios have collaborated on aspects of the title over the past year."
