The new storyline is going to be abandoned in favour of the Sands of Time story arc.
Guess what, Ubisoft is working on a new Prince of Persia game, which is no surprise, as everyone expected a game to tie-in with the upcoming Prince of Persia movie. Interestingly, the game won’t be set in the new Prince of Persia story arc that was kicked off by the newest Prince game that was released last year.
So the upcoming game will be out in May 2010, and go by the name “Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands”. The name itself hints that the game will work with the original Sands of Time storyline, allowing it to conveniently fit in with the upcoming movie. The press release states “Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands will feature many of the fan-favorite elements from the original series as well as new gameplay innovations that gamers have come to expect from the Prince of Persia brand.” In other words, standard marketing speak blah-blah.
No word on what consoles it will be released for, but the game will be revealed at the upcoming VGA 2009 on Spike TV on the 12th of December, so be sure to tune in if you want to take a peek at the new Prince.
