Ubisoft Cans Heroes Game

Way back in July of last year, Ubisoft picked up the Heroes license from Universal to develop a video game based on the popular TV series. Since then, nothing has been said about the licensed effort, leading many to question the status of the project. So what is going on with Heroes? Unsurprisingly, it’s been canned, according to Ubi PR director Jaime Cottini:

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.

Movie and TV based games usually end up falling short of mediocre. We find it hard to imagine that many folks will be upset by this decision, even fans of the show.

Because licensed games usually turn out to be below average, and when a game isn't good, there are disappointed fans. There are exceptions to the rule, sure, but I don't think Heroes was going to be one of them.

Take a look at Lost for example, also published by Ubisoft. Awesome show and given the subject matter, the game had great potential, but failed to deliver.
