If you were hoping to play the game based on Heroes, the popular TV series from NBC, then too bad. According to Ubisoft PR director, Jaime Cottini, Peter, Claire, Hiro, and the rest of the gang won’t be coming to your gaming platforms anymore. Oh well…
Bad news for those who’ve been waiting for a Heroes game. Ubisoft announced that they dropped plans to make the video game based on the popular NBC TV series. Ubisoft PR Director Jaime Cottini has this statement:
The rights to the Heroes video game have reverted back to NBC Universal. Ubisoft will no longer produce a video game based on the TV series.
The game was officially announced back in July of 2007, and targeted a 2008 release. Having published other TV show-based games such as Lost and CSI, we know Ubisoft has experience in that field – they know what they’re doing when they sack plans like this. Both games didn’t fare very well, which is probably why they’re not doing this one.
Heroes is in its third season and has lost a lot of ratings since the first. Ubisoft was quick to act in pulling the plug on this one.
