Ubisoftupdated it's Prince of Persia Facebook page promising information starting next week.

It's been some time since we last heard of a new Prince of Persia game but it seems like the wait is over. Currently Ubisoft have a huge number of big hitting games lined up for release and still they tempt us with more...

There was a time when Prince of Persia was Ubsioft's flagship franchise. The Sands of Time is still regarded as one of the best games the company has ever produced. It still has a rock solid fan base to this day.

Times started changing by the time the seventh generation of consoles [read: PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360] arrived, however. The downfall was triggered by 2008's Prince of Persia. It tried to revitalise the series by taking a different approach from it's heritage, the end result was disappointed fans. In 2010 The Forgotten Sands tried returning to its roots but still the franchise magic remained burried.

Since then Ubisoft wisely avoided another PoP title, stating franchise fatigue. Maybe that was for the best...

Well enoughs enough and Prince or Persia information is coming next week. We're excited! As always, PoP back next week to hear all about it.

Still, do you think this upcoming announcement for the game could be an iOS game? Or a full-blown AAA title? GD'ers, vote and shout your thoughts in comments below!

I have kinda lost hope in PoP ever since the newer titles butchered the series. So, not interested.

I must say, I do agree with you two. The fact that you couldn't die in PoP2008 kinda took it away for me, and only the platforming (IMO) was good in Forgotten Sands. In TFS, the story was a little confusing (as if the Prince had Memory Loss), and the combat system was kinda dull. Not to mention, the graphics looked kinda outdated.

Which one, 2008, or TFS?
I loved the 2008 Prince, because he is kinda like me in most ways. And, yeah, the story should be awesome.

I liked all the PoP games especially PoP (2008), though it had nothing to do with the roots of the game I liked the story (wish there was some more back story for the prince) and I loved the Art style it used and I liked how they made it sort of Open World.

OMG, I have waited for this day since I don't know when!!!!! Hopefully it will be an AAA Title!!!
For me Prince of Persia pwns Assassins Creed series, and as much as I like AC series, I hate them equally because it was probably them that put the PoP series to a standstill...

No, Assassin's Creed came out in 2008 but even The Forgotten Sands got a good fan base so its Ubi who left out the series.

I heard the news yesterday and I couldn't be but very tempted to see the series back in a whole new attractive shape. I just wish they don't make it similar to Assassin's Creed. After all, both are built on similar gaming mechanics. I want to see it different. Still, I can't help but hope AC will still best it xD!

I don't think it would be a mobile game, as Ubisoft already developing "Prince Of Persia: The Shadow And Flames" for iOS & mobile devices. It could be a movie also, but I really hope that it would be an AAA title - Maybe Ubisoft planning POP for next gen consoles :D

Yeah that's what I've been thinking.
But if it turns out to be a AAA title . . . then heaven would've come down to earth for me. Then I would've pissed my pants. I want awesome 3D Platforming, epic combat sequences and an open world if it's a new Prince of Persia game. And finally . . . Arabian music. Have you listened to this?
Absolutely amazing.

Yeah me too mate, I'm a great fan of the POP franchise and I would be really happy to see a new POP AAA title. And with the next gen consoles, I'm sure the graphics would be simply amazing as other ubisoft games (Assassin's creed, watchdogs etc..) Ah thanks for the music, remembered old times when playing Sands of time. But I prefer warrior within OST :D
