This will come as no surprise and I am actually surprised it took so long for the deal to be struck, but Ubisoft announced they will begin development on a Heroes video game.

 The first season of Tim Kring’s hit TV series has attracted over 14 million viewers each week and is one of the most popular shows among 18-49 year-olds. Time magazine named Heroes one of the Top 10 TV shows for 2006, and the phenomenon is now broadcast in more than 30 countries across the globe.

 

Heroes is an epic drama that chronicles the lives of ordinary people across the world who discover they possess extraordinary abilities, such as telepathy, time travel and flight. They will soon come to realize that the fate of the world depends on them, and be forced to team up against someone seeking to eliminate them.

“With a gripping storyline and rich characters, Heroes lends itself naturally to a video game format,” said Christian Salomon, vice president of worldwide licensing at Ubisoft. “By offering people the chance to interact directly with the show’s captivating universe, there is no doubt that the game will appeal to both fans of the series and avid gamers.”

"We are very excited to be making the Heroes video game with Ubisoft,” said Tim Kring, executive producer and creator of Heroes. “Time and again, Ubisoft has proven they can turn licensed properties into fantastic games."

 The question is, will they turn this license into a fantastic game or will they completely blow it? If I were Hiro I would already know the answer to that question.
