We'll let Angelina settle this one

At its event in Paris, Ubisoft announced that it will publish Beowulf, which is based on the animated movie of the same name to be released in November 2007. The movie stars the voices of Angelina Jolie, Anthony Hopkins, and John Malkovich among others, and it's expected that the movie (and game) will follow the storyline told in the classic tale.

There's a little confusion though on exactly which game it is though, because 4HEAD Studios announced early last year that it's working on a next-gen Beowulf title. Beowulf: Viking Warrior was to be published on Xbox 360 and PC, and rumored to be headed to PS3 as well. HEXUS.gaming is reporting that Ubisoft is actually publishing the 4HEAD title, while IGN reports that this is an internally developed title at Ubisoft and not related to the 4HEAD effort. Whatever the case may be, we hope to have the confusion cleared up soon. If they are indeed two separate titles, then 4HEAD will likely be forced to change the name of its game to avoid confusion.
