The video game industry has been witnessing, for a few years now, how Retired franchises are back in apparent second youth. In the case of Prince of Persia, practically ten years after this saga disappeared from the present, he announced a remake to the surprise of many. And it seems that the thing could go even further, because it could be on the way a new 2D advancement Prince of Persia. Similar news has already sounded in the past, so that theory is reinforced again.
This rumor was dropped by the Australian “Shpeshal Nick”, who runs the XboxEra portal and a podcast on youtube with the same brand. He himself details that this 2D game based on the Prince of Persia universe would be “in a very early stage”. Therefore, if true, there would still be enough time to know news about this hypothetical video game that would accompany Las Arenas del Tiempo in the resurgence of the saga.
Younger readers may not know much about this saga, but Prince of Persia is one of the most successful video game franchises of the 90s and 2000s. Many elements that appear, for example, in Assassin’s Creed, would not have been the same without the existence of this franchise. This Ubisoft saga was on the crest of the wave for a long time, and the sales figures for the Sands of Time remake will most likely be striking if all goes according to plan.
For this reason, it would not be unreasonable there’s a new 2D trailer on the way that seeks to test whether fans of the saga are still willing to invest time and money in playing new installments. Anyway, we still don’t even know what day the confirmed remake will come out, so we will have to be patient with the news of this beloved saga.
