Ubisoft making Heroes?

The TV show, not real ones.

Ubisoft could be closing its grip on another hot Hollywood property, according to film nut Variety, which says the publisher is in the final throes of an agreement to create a game based on TV show Heroes.

Confirmation is expected at the end of this week from Comic-Con event taking place in San Diego.

Ubisoft has declined to comment on the whole scenario, but the Heroes licence would be a natural fit for a game. It's just started on BBC 2 in the UK, and focuses on a bunch of people mainly from America who all discover they have super powers. Our favourite is Hiro Nakamura.

It's been outrageously popular across the US, and is scheduled for a second series there starting 24th September.

Ubisoft announced yesterday that it would also be creating a game to go alongside James Cameron's latest film Avatar.

The publisher pulled off one of the best film-to-game conversions in recent history with King Kong, so our hopes for both projects are high.
