ABC has announced that an interactive video game based on its hit show Lost will be released for gaming systems in 2007. The console game joins the Web-based "Lost Experience" game that was launched earlier this month.
Montréal-based game studio Ubisoft, which in the past has ported CSI and CSI: Miami to game screens, is bringing Lost to retail shelves worldwide. The game will be available for home and portable consoles, as well as PCs.
Details of the game's plot are still unknown, as is whether or not the TV show actors will portray themselves in the game. Previously, Lost creator J.J. Abrams brought his show Alias to game systems with the full cast's voices and likenesses.
"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," said Lost executive producer Bryan Burk. "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."
The Lost season-two finale airs Wednesday, May 24, at 9:00 p.m. on ABC. Although ratings are down 20 percent this season, the show has spawned a devoted cult of fans called "Losties."
