The official Prince of Persia Facebook account just dropped a hell of a teaser, considering it's just a stupid Facebook page. Nonethless, when an official Ubisoft representative says to expect news on Prince of Persia next week you clear your calendar and start playing Sands of Time in the mean time. Hopefully Ubisoft has something big and fun lined up for fans.
Here's the full message copy and pasted over from their Facebook page:
"Get ready for some news about Prince of Persia, starting next week..."
Of course, let's maintain some realistic perspective here (yeah, yeah, not really my style) as Ubisoft is just as likely to be rereleasing the original Prince of Persia on OUYA or something equally inane as they are to release a new game altogether. For now, we just have to trust that Ubisoft wouldn't tease something as ambiguous as "Prince of Persia news" unless it was something fans should get legitimately excited about.
That said, we've been expecting Ubisoft to reveal a new Prince of Persia game for some time now. It was at 2012's E3 that a trailer was leaked showing off something called Prince of Persia Zero, though it never appeared at the show. The same rumors started up again earlier this year when more details were leaked about the project, like the title Osiris. Coincidentally, Osiris popped on other industry lists as well. Still, it was a no show at this year's E3 again.
Hopefully big Prince of Persia news coming next week! No whammies like a Prince of Persia Facebook game or any other nonsense, please.
