Ubisoft Cancels Heroes Game

Ubisoft has cancelled its video game based on NBC Universal's super-powered televisions series Heroes, which stars Hayden Panettiere (pictured left) and Milo Ventimiglia among others.

"The rights to the Heroes video game have reverted back to NBC Universal. Ubisoft will no longer produce a video game based on the TV series," the publisher told MTV Multiplayer.

Announced last summer, the game was slated to hit PC and unspecified "next-generation" consoles. Series creator Tim Kring and co-executive producer Jesse Alexander were slated to help with the project.

However, Alexander was fired from the show this past weekend alongside fellow writer Jeph Loeb, with Variety reporting that NBC was not happy with the show's direction.
