Attn: I Am Alive Out For PC Tomorrow

Well that’s weird. Ubisoft, despite having previously ruled it out entirely, announced recently that they would in fact be bringing their XBLA/PSN game I Am Alive to PC. And now, despite having scheduled the release for September 13, they have instead quietly pushed it forward to September 6, AKA tomorrow.

No word on what prompted this stealthy early release. Personally, I don’t really care. I Am Alive was originally planned as a full AAA release, until drama behind the scenes kneecapped development; frankly, the final release really shows how half-formed the game is. Who knows, maybe this is why the Assassin’s Creed team thinks they’re making the last AAA – maybe behind the scenes, Ubisoft wants everything done on the cheap. If you’re planning to check it out, it’ll be on Steam and Ubishop.

Didn’t get much in the way of good reviews. I wonder why they wanted to release it for PC at all.

Most likely a cheap port, but this way they can say “Oh we support the PC completely!” as they slowly realize that PC sales are rising, and console sales are falling.

I find this hilarious. “PC gamers are all pirates, so we won’t make a PC version of this game. (And by that I apparently mean it’ll come out for PC anyway)”

Despite saying this, a PC version was made. And despite claiming that 95% of those playing PC versions Ubisoft games are pirates, they continue to make them. Come on Ubisoft, if pirates are such a huge truly such a huge problem for you, then making PC versions makes no business sense. Since I would think that you at least understand the basic premise of making a profit, I have to think that you continue to make PC versions because piracy isn’t as bad as you claim.
