“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]

Unsurprisingly, Ubisoft announced today that two new HD collections are in the works. The Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia series will each see a trilogy of its games re-released in high definition for the PlayStation 3. Both were rumored last year after retail listings popped up, with Ubisoft later confirming them.

Splinter Cell Classic Trilogy HD will include the original Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory all on one Blu-ray disc or as a download from the PlayStation Store. The 'classic' part of the title is most likely a clarification that it includes the first three games in the series rather than a suggestion that a second HD collection could be in the works. Three more Splinter Cell games have been released since Chaos Theory, but one (Conviction) was an exclusive to the Xbox 360 and PC and another (Essentials) was only for the PSP.

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]

Being a prince isn’t all about smiling at cameras all royal like, christening fancy boats, or whatever else princes do (seriously what do they do?) As in the case of 2004’s Prince of Persia Warrior Within from developer Ubisoft, sometimes you’ve got to fight off the immortal manifestation of Fate, as it tries to kill you for escaping your predestined death.

Thankfully this Prince isn’t at the mercy of this Final Destination-like scenario, he’s got some mean combat skills, along with duel weapon mastery to snuff the living (non-living?) daylights out of whatever nightmarish forces stand in his way. Oh, and the power to control time is fine too. And by fine I mean, amazingly cool.
