Our first glimpse into the future of the Prince of Persia games might have just received an accidental tease, courtesy of a too-fast-on-the-tweet-button Ubisoft employee.
Engineer Drew James tweeted the image above hinting at… something on the way for the dormant platforming franchise. The last full-on, AAA game in the series was 2008′s cel-shaded Prince of Persia for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, which introduced a new setting and protagonist for the series, also kicking off speculation that “Prince of Persia” might become like Final Fantasy, describing unconnected games in the line.
It was followed up in 2010 by the multiplatform 2.5D side-scroller, The Sands of Time, which returned us to the hero of The Sands of Time trilogy.
If the rumors Armi pointed out earlier this week are to be believed, we could be looking at another 2D entry using the Rayman Legends framework (and those are some mighty fine-looking games). James’ tweet indicates that Ubisoft is planning some kind of reveal in the near future, likely at E3 in June.
