The Prince of Persia franchise has been “paused” while the company thinks up new ideas. Speaking to IGN, Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat said the series is taking a breather and this may actually be in the best interest of the franchise.
“Brand management is a tricky thing,” Mallat said. “It needs people’s attention a lot. I think it is fair to say that, right now, Prince of Persia is being paused. But we said the same thing for some other brands that suddenly popped up because a team is willing to do it.”
Mallat noted that fans should not be worried, as Prince of Persia will remain part of Ubisoft’s portfolio, even if it doesn’t show up for some time.
