The Prince of Persia Reboot could return with a new series, according to rumors.
The second Ubisoft Forward, the streaming event dedicated to the French publisher, was held on 10 September this year. One of the protagonists of the live stream was Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake, a remake of the classic action-adventure released in 2003 on a 128-bit console.
Despite the initial enthusiasm, the fans have turned up their noses quite a bit, especially for a decidedly subdued graphics sector, with a truly unworthy technical performance (and closer to that of at least two generations ago).
Apparently, however, the remake of The Sands of Time may not be the only installment in the series coming in the coming months.
The Indian YouTuber who anticipated the reveal of the remake of the first Prince of Persia months in advance revealed that a real Prince of Persia reboot of the series is in the initial stages of development (however the post has now been deleted):
“Aside from that I’ve got a new prince of persia leak, that you won’t find on any other news source. Basically Sands of Time is coming next year anyway, but aside from that Ubisoft is working on a completely new PoP game that won’t be a remake. Right now the early concept is being worked on, where game mechanics are completely being redesigned and you can say that it’ll reboot the series. It’ll probably come out in 2023 or 2024 and If I get any news regarding it, I’ll definitely tell you.”
In short, a new Prince of Persia – this time designed to restart the series once and for all – would be in the early stages of development. At the moment it is still early to talk about it, although it cannot be ruled out that Ubisoft decides to “pause” some of its flagship series (perhaps, Assassin’s Creed) to give space to the return of the prince. We’ll see.
Recall that Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is scheduled to release on January 21, 2021, on PS4, Xbox One, PC, uPlay, and Epic Store.
