We Desperately Want To Know More About Ubisoft's Quirky "I Am Alive".

Despite not inherently affecting the Playstation 3's '09 lineup, Ubisoft have decided to push back their XBOX 360 title Splinter Cell: Conviction and Wii release Red Steel 2, with multiplatform titles I Am Alive and Ghost Recon slipping way back into next fiscal year. CEO Yves Guillemot stated:
"We are disappointed that we have to postpone the release of several major games but we consider that this choice is the best one in the long-term interests of Ubisoft. Lastly, we are having to adjust our full-year targets to take into account the fall in business over the first half. The excellent response to our games at E3, as well as the high buzz generated for titles such as Assassin's Creed 2, Splinter Cell Conviction and Avatar, reinforce our belief that the company can achieve strong growth in the second half of the fiscal year."</blockquote>

Still, it could have been worse - Assassin's Creed II could have been delayed.
