Ubisoft and Touchstone team up to create 'Lost' game

MUMBAI: Video game publisher Ubisoft has inked a long-term worldwide licensing agreement with Touchstone Television to develop and publish a video game based on 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.

"We are delighted to work with Bryan Burk, one of the biggest producers in Hollywood and with Touchstone Television. That they have chosen us for the adaptation of the cult series Lost is the best homage that a producer can make to the creativity of Ubisoft," said Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot.

"This deal is another example of how truly powerful the Lost brand is. 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 ABC Entertainment and Touchstone Television senior vice president business development Bruce Gersh.

"The creative appeal of Lost transcends borders with its character driven stories and addictive mysterious mythology. It's not enough for fans worldwide to just watch Lost, the game is a wonderful opportunity to organically extend this creative phenomenon into an interactive consumer experience," said Touchstone Television executive vice president Julia Franz.

"Many of us on Lost have been hardcore gamers for years and the chance to work with Ubisoft, a company behind some of our favorite titles, has excited us to no end. With the ability to tell new interactive stories within the Lost universe, we’re giddy to be developing a game that, once completed, will be as engaging and fun to play as it is to create," said Lost executive producer Bryan Burk.
