French publisher and developer Ubisoft has signed a licensing agreement with ABC Studios which will see it develop a video game based on ABC Studios’ hospital TV drama Grey’s Anatomy for Wii, DS and PC.

The drama, which debuted in 2005 and is currently in its fifth series, is set in Seattle-based Grace Hospital and stars the likes of Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Sandra Oh, Katherine Heigl and Justin Chambers.

“Ubisoft is thrilled to be collaborating with ABC Studios to turn this phenomenal television series into an interactive experience,” VP of worldwide licensing at Ubisoft Christian Salomon stated.

“In Grey’s Anatomy: The Video Game, fans will have a chance to take on the roles of all of their favourite doctors in an all-new original storyline. As each doctor, players will make important personal and professional decisions, explore the direct relationships with each other, and perform the delicate surgeries the series is known for, all through fun and engaging game play.”

The game is due out on Wii, DS and PC in “early” 2009.
