Heat is an upcoming game, based on the 1995 crime film with the same name. It is under development by Gearbox Software for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. During the E3 2009, Gearbox did not have the license of the film to make the game as it is being opened to be sold. 
Michael Mann, director of the film, is reported to be involved.
In a recent interview Randy Pitchford President, CEO, and co-founder of Gearbox Software said that development of the game has been halted and the IP could potentially be available to pass onto another developer saying:
'In a nutshell, we're nowhere. We have passionate game makers that would love to do it. We've got filmmakers that think it's a great idea that would love to see it done. We have publishing partners that would love to publish it. But we have no time. That's the limiting factor. Because of the situation, we're not keeping the IP locked down anymore. So if somebody else were in a spot where they could do it, and everybody was comfortable with that, then conceivably that could happen.'
