Today could mark a sad empty few years for Prince of Persia fans, as Ubisoft have decided to give the infamous title a rest before pursuing any more remakes/sequels. According to Yannis Mallat, Ubisoft Montreals chief executive officer, he explained in a recent IGN interview that while the series is still important to Ubisoft at this time they’re not sure where to take it.

“Brand management is a tricky thing, 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.”

The last time we had the pleasure (I use that term loosely) of taking a journey with the prince was Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands back in 2010, which was released to coincide with the Disney movie.

“I’m not scared at all for Prince of Persia fans, We’ll find something to entertain them with in the future. Prince of Persia is part of Ubisoft’s portfolio. As a matter of fact, we sometimes iterate on franchises and sometimes we give them time to breathe and time to grow, or time to rest. Prince of Persia is as important as any other franchise for Ubisoft. As soon as we have something to show, we will.”

So what do you think? Is this the end for such a long-lasting franchise or will we be seeing something soon? Let us know in the comments below.
