Prince of Persia Creator Suggests a Series Revival may Occur

Prince of Persia Sands of Time

Where’s our Prince gone

Two days ago, however, the franchise creator, Jordan Mechner, tweeted that he's actually working to bring back the series.

The Prince of Persia franchise has been left by the wayside since The Forgotten Sands in 2013 (itself quickly forgotten about by most).

The game's creator is trying his best to make it happen. Also, the Assassin's Creed franchise is considered to be ubisoft's successor to Prince Of Persia franchise.

Earlier this week, model and TV host Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter to ask her followers if the Prince of Persia series was still around.

In response to a tweet from a fan, who loves the franchise and lamented its long absence, Mechner responded that he was working on it, and was "doing [his] best to make it happen!".

Prince of Persia's roots can be traced back to the inaugural Apple II outing back in 1989, though it wasn't until 2003's critically acclaimed Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time that the series really became a bona fide industry juggernaut. After all, many already consider Assassin's Creed and its myriad sequels to have filled the hole left when the Prince of Persia property languished during the PS3 and Xbox 360 era. Ubisoft Montreal - the studio which would most likely lead a new Prince of Persia title, says the series is still "on pause". Whether that is a deliberate carrot to gain headlines and gauge reaction, we don't know - but if they are looking for a reaction. they've got our vote for a revival!
