Ubisoft’s I Am Alive has had a long and troubled development history. The game was originally announced back in 2008 as a retail release for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Then, outside a few screenshots hitting the ‘net, the game pretty much vanished off the face of the planet.

There have been many “is I Am Alive still alive?” jokes cracked over the course of the last three years.

But today, Ubisoft and developer Ubisoft Shanghai have broken their silence. I Am Alive is still very much alive, and will be coming this winter as an Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network title.

"We know people have been waiting for this game to arrive, and we believe it’s going to be worth the wait," said Adam Novickas, Director of Marketing at Ubisoft. "I Am Alive presents a unique take on the post-apocalyptic, survival genre by creating more complex and emotional situations for the player. Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network are the perfect platforms to leverage the mature and challenging experiences of the game."

To usher in the announcement, Ubisoft also released a new trailer for I Am Alive, which you can watch below.
