For months now, there have been countless rumors surrounding Ubisoft returning to the cult-classic Prince of Persia series. This time there has been a registeration of a very specific domain that teases a new game in the franchise.
Originally, Gandi.net, the company that handles all of Ubisoft’s games had registered the “princeofpersia6.com” domain. But later it seemed to show GoDaddy as the registrant. So don’t forget some big grains of salt.
Fans have been speculating on whether it’ll be a new continuation in the series, or a remake of the infamous Sands of Time trilogy for next-gen consoles.
Although doubtful, if the leak is true, I’d bet on a reboot or a sequel. This would be the 6th entry in the PoP series:
- Sands of Time
- Warrior Within
- Two Thrones
- Prince of Persia 2008
- Forgotten Sands
All these previous games have a separate registered domain in a similar format: princeofpersiaX.com. So this kind of makes the leak more believable than it should be.
Back in February, Ubisoft brought back the franchise with a VR Escape Room at more than 300 locations around the globe. This was followed by a Prince of Persia themed in-game event in For Honor. Just like they teased Splinter Cell fans with a surprise in-game event in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands after 5 complete years, and again in Breakpoint this year. They really know how to entice fans.
