“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.
