“As soon as we have something to show, we will.”



Ubisoft has “paused” the Prince of Persia franchise while it considers new ideas. In an interview with IGN, Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat confirmed that the series is currently taking a break, but explained that shouldn’t be taken as a bad sign.

“Brand management is a tricky thing,” Mallat told IGN. “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.”

The screenshot, which emerged on the official Ubisoft forums this weekend, makes reference to 'PoP Zero 2'. According to long-standing reports, 'PoP Zero' was a failed 2008 reinvention of the Prince of Persia series set in the modern era.

After the secret project was canned, many features and design ideas were said to have been incorporated into the original Assassin's Creed. The first whispers of a new 'Persia were voiced ahead of this year's E3, when supposedly leaked images appeared showing a cloaked figure and the phrase "Judgement is coming". The 'leaked' E3 pics appear to align with what we can see in today's image. We've contacted Ubisoft for comment. [SOURCE]

Leaked images can prove to be massively informative or completely misleading, and the latest grabs of what looks to be a cinematic trailer from Ubisoft could go either way. Beyond some classical glimpses of armor and weaponry, it’s difficult to tell if the developer is preparing to unveil a new Prince of Persia title at E3 2012, or another entirely different property. Either way, it seems that ‘Judgment is Coming.’

Europe already got it, we in North America were given the Prince of Persia Sand Trilogy via digital download, but we might be seeing a disc version on this side of the Atlantic. A product listing on GameFly leads us to believe that a disc version of the Prince of Persia HD Collection is coming on March 22nd. Considering that disc copies exist in Europe, pressing North American copies would not be that difficult for Ubisoft.

This is still very much just a rumor but hopefully we’ll hear something from UbiSoft really soon. [SOURCE]

Collections, remakes and reboots are big these days. But a couple new collections might only be exclusive to the European region... According to a Euro source citing Jeuxvideo, our gaming buddies across the pond will receive two sets of remakes in only a few months time:

A Prince of Persia trilogy remastered for 3D compatibility and a Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection, remade in high-definition. The PoP set is supposedly set to arrive on November 4 and the MK remakes are going to show up on November 18, if the information is correct.
