Ubisoft have announced that they are working on a new Prince of Persia title. The new game will be developed under the UbiArt FrameWork Engine and will be two dimensional. This doesn’t come as a shock as Prince of Persia doesn’t have the same appeal that it once did back on the Playstation 2, Xbox and early days of Xbox 360.
The CEO behind Ubisoft Montreal commented on this announcement, saying: “Prince of Persia has been put on hold on consoles but that doesn’t mean that the series has to be put on hold across all platforms. We have plans to make a completely new Prince of Persia series on mobile devices using our FrameWork Engine. We will be able to create a new visceral experience that old fans will love and new fans will enjoy.”
Continuing Yannis Mallat said, “We’re going to start the game from scratch and give our players a completely new prince set in a different time period. We plan to incorporate new gameplay features that will allow for the 2D Platform design of this game to be exciting while rewarding at the same time.
Ubisofts last console Prince of Persia video game was “Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands” and it took on an artistic design element as well, it didn’t do well and neither have the last three mobile Prince of Persia games. The new mobile game will be released in the upcoming month and plans to wow players with its new exciting gameplay experience.
