A couple of weeks ago, a retailer listing popped up online for a Prince of Persia remake– which, of course, was surprising because no such game has been announced by Ubisoft yet. Ordinarily, most people would have waved that away as being nothing, but not long after that listing went up, Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier said that it was an accurate leak after all, and that the “surprise announcement” would be coming very soon.
With a second Ubisoft Forward digital showcase coming next week on September 10, the assumption has been that that’s when this game – if it is indeed real – will be announced, and Schreier recently said that that will be the case. Speaking recently during the Triple Click podcast (at around the 27:00 mark, as spotted by Wccftech), Schreier mentioned that Ubisoft are planning on announcing the Prince of Persia remake during the Ubisoft Forward show.
Of course, until such time an official announcement is made, it’s best to tread with caution, especially with a franchise that has been inactive for as long as Prince of Persia has been. That said, Schreier’s track record with inside info speaks for itself, and Ubisoft have a terrible history with leaks, so there’s probably something to this after all.
You can also expect an official reveal (or re-reveal) of Immortals Fenyx Rising (previously known as Gods and Monsters) at the Ubisoft Forward showcase. As per a recent leak, the game is due out this December.
