Lost game this year

Still can't find it.

Two of the executive producers on never-ending TV series Lost, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, have said the game based on the show will be out this year.

The pair's podcast also let slip that the game is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal - the team behind Assassin's Creed and Prince of Persia - and will be available on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Lindelof and Cuse were responding to a question from a Canadian fan, asking whether they could confirm the game's release on Xbox 360 this year.

Lindelof was first to nod his assent, before Cuse added: "Not just for Xbox [360]; it'll also be PS3 and PC compatible."

"We were sitting here with the guys that are making it, [who] actually are from Canada - Montreal. And they did a demo of some of the elements of it and it's really cool. It's actually going to be a pretty cool game."

It's the first we've heard anything since Ubisoft gobbled up the rights to produce games based on the series back in 2005.

However, the handheld versions promised back then weren't mentioned by the producer pair, so perhaps they forgot about them, or they're on the other side of the island or something.

Lost follows the adventures of a group of people struggling to survive after their plane crash on a Pacific Island. Mystery ensues. The series has been a massive hit almost everywhere it's been released, clamping many of us in its sandy jaws. Juliet is the new Kate.

Unfortunately, Ubisoft was unavailable to comment on all this at the time of writing. Or was it, etc.
