Ubisoft has announced a long-term world-wide licensing agreement with Touchstone Television to develop and publish a video game based on the Emmy Award-winning television series "Lost".
Developed by Ubisoft’s Montréal studio and scheduled to hit retail shelves worldwide in 2007, the game will be offered for home and portable consoles as well as PCs.
Aside from announcing the deal, Ubisoft so far have not released any information as to the genre or any details of the game.
“We are excited to work together with Ubisoft to create a gaming experience that will allow fans to further immerse themselves into the mysteries and intrigues of the series”, said Bruce Gersh, senior vice president, business development, ABC Entertainment and Touchstone Television.
Touchstone Television executive Julia Franz added: "The creative appeal of Lost transcends borders with its character driven stories and addictive mysterious mythology. It's not enough for fans world-wide to just watch Lost, the game is a wonderful opportunity to organically extend this creative phenomenon into an interactive consumer experience".
