Ubisoft announced it has cancelled the development of a game based on Heroes, the popular NBC TV show:
Ubisoft first officially announced the game tie-in to the hit TV series in July last year, with the game scheduled to have been released by, well, now.
“The rights to the ‘Heroes’ video game have reverted back to NBC Universal," said Ubisoft PR director Jaime Cottini. "Ubisoft will no longer produce a video game based on the TV series."
Though no official information was ever given out on the game or why exactly it has been cancelled, speculation is that Ubisoft is responding to declining interest in the show, which is now in the third series. Though the show proved phenomenally popular in the first series, the second series came to an abrupt end thanks to the writers strike and the third season has struggled to get positive reviews.
Maybe it's for the best as Ubisoft's attempt at making a game of LOST wasn't that great..
