Lost videogames on the way

For PC, consoles, handhelds.

Lucky old Ubisoft has acquired the rights to produce a bundle of games based on Lost, the hit TV series that's still quite good even though it went a bit boring for a while there but seems like things are picking up now.

All they will reveal so far is that the games are due out next year on PC, consoles and handhelds. Which doesn't leave us quite as intrigued as that bit with the polar bear to be honest but there you are.

For those who have been living on a, well, deserted Pacific island for the past year, Lost follows the adventures of a group of people struggling to survive after their plane crash lands on a deserted Pacific island. OR IS IT etc.

The series was a huge hit in the US when it was first broadcast in September 2004 and its success has since spread around the globe - Lost is now broadcast in more than 210 countries, and illegally downloaded by about a million billion people. Not us, obviously, since we can watch it on TV now.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said the company was "delighted" to have acquired the licence, adding: "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."

Lost producer Bryan Burk said: "Many of us on Lost have been hardcore gamers for years and the chance to work with Ubisoft, a company behind some of our favourite 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." Giddy, indeed.
