A mysterious article popped up last Friday on OXM's UK Site, claiming that Ubisoft had quietly announced a next-gen sequel to its 3D re-imagining of the classic Prince of Persia franchise. Previously, we here at IGN, as well as pretty much everyone in the gaming press, had believed that the Prince of Persia series would be taking little a break, with Assassin's Creed stepping forward to fill the action-platforming void.
With OXM's article stirring up abundant rumors about a sequel in the works, we decided to contact Ubisoft directly for comment. An Ubisoft representative claimed that the company had "made no such announcement at this point." This statement casts some serious doubt on the original article, as it made it look like there had been some sort of official announcement out of Ubisoft.
With Ubisoft denying OXM's claims, it makes it difficult for us to determine the fate of everyone's favorite angst-ridden hero. While we are eagerly awaiting an update to the series, we would rather get excited after Ubisoft officially announces the game, rather than before. C'mon, Ubisoft. Cut us a break. We want our prince, and we want him now.
