Prince of Persia Creator Is Trying to Revive the Franchise

Remember Prince of Persia? While Ubisoft’s “Sands of Time” trilogy resonated with gamers, the latest reboot, which launched in 2010, didn’t exactly light the gaming world on fire. Since then, we haven’t heard a peep about the franchise since.

Well, if Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner succeeds, we might be hearing of a new entry into the franchise soon. Over on Twitter, model Chrissy Teigen posted and asked if Prince of Persia “is still around” since she loved the game back then.

You know what happens when famous people tweet stuff, official developers, and accounts reply. And that’s exactly what happened. Jordan Mechner’s verified Twitter account mentioned that they are doing their best to make it happen.

Let’s hope we get a new Prince of Persia soon, and it builds on the greatness that was the Sands of Time. Preferably, they leave the angst and all that at home.

Do you think there’s room in the gaming landscape for another Prince of Persia? What sort of gameplay should it include this time?
