Prince of Persia’s leaked remake, which appeared on a retailer’s website recently, will be announced during Ubisoft’s briefing on 10th September, journalist Jason Schreier has teased. The Bloomberg scribe was speaking as part of the Triple Click podcast, and namedropped the project directly. The French publisher has promised “big news”, with the recently renamed Immortals Fenyx Rising also set to feature.
Despite being one of the industry’s longest running brands, Ubisoft put the Prince of Persia franchise on hiatus back in 2013, after its PlayStation 3 reboot attempt failed to set cash registers alight. This new game will be the first entry in the series since the more traditional Forgotten Sands, which launched alongside the Jake Gyllenhaal movie in 2010.
