New Prince of Persia Paused


​Well, not quite yet. Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat commented on the state of the company's Prince of Persia franchise, after a post on their forums, which revealed a mysterious screenshot, supposedly taken from the new PoP game.

“Brand management is a tricky thing,” Mallat explains. “It needs people's attention a lot. I think it is fair to say that, right now, Prince of Persia is being paused. But we said the same thing for some other brands that suddenly popped up because a team is willing to do it.” Mallat added that fans shouldn’t be concerned, and that Prince of Persia will resurface when it’s ready.

“I'm not scared at all for Prince of Persia fans,” he commented. “We'll find something to entertain them with in the future. Prince of Persia is part of Ubisoft's portfolio. As a matter of fact, we sometimes iterate on franchises and sometimes we give them time to breathe and time to grow, or time to rest. Prince of Persia is as important as any other franchise for Ubisoft. As soon as we have something to show, we will.”

As it has already been pointed out, the new character seems a bit more muscley than the usual hero, which is fine really. Or is it? The Prince was always a bit slim. 

The last PoP game, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, wasn't exactly the pinnacle of the franchise, although it had some nice moments with some traditional platform-style puzzles.

Price of Persia is better than Assassin's creed *grabs popcorn*

In a manner of speaking. Not really tho. They're both fun in their own way. Also, AC has segments that are similar to PoP gameplay mechanics.

Out of 8 PoP games I've played on PC, I've enjoyed a good 7 of them (exception being PoP 3D).
So Im definately looking forward to the next one. Although it looks like a 60 yr old black guy in that pic above
  Vader: Not to sound negative, but I prefer the slim version.

I think that screenshot looks very assassins creed-ish somehow. Looks like the same engine at least.
  Vader: That's because of the crowd and the buildings in the …
Ftmch: and the general look of the graphics, if it's a new P…
