Prince of Persia is a fan-favorite franchise

Back then, it was just a rumor. But given his latest comments, it is highly likely that a game will make an appearance at the Ubisoft Forward. This is great news for the fans. The last Prince of Persia game came out in 2015 that was Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands. The game wasn’t as well-received as the original trilogy and didn’t perform well for Ubisoft.

But with this announcement, they have a good chance of reviving one of their best franchises. The original trilogy of Sands of Time, Warrior Within, and Two Thrones was absolutely phenomenal. Since these 3 were the most famous games, it is highly likely that one of these will be remade. Or if Ubisoft is feeling too generous, they might just give us a remake of all of them.
