Is This A Behind-The-Scenes Video Of A Prince Of Persia Reboot?

Bizarrely, within the same 24-hour period that Ubisoft says the Prince of Persia series is "paused", footage has emerged of a project that sure seems like a Prince of Persia reboot.

You've seen it before, back in August, but this production video says that the project's name is Osiris, adding to suspicions the game — whatever it is — is set in Egypt.

While most of the clip involves background footage showing actors used for motion-capture data, there are snippets of art and other scenes shown, especially towards the end.

The video was posted by Mark Kilian, and it was uploaded five months ago. It says it was commissioned by Ubisoft Montreal, the same mega-studio behind the Assassin's Creed series (and Far Cry 3).

You can watch it here.

    That's hardly an original piece of concept art... can anyone say Ra from the original (1994) Stargate movie...

      Just watched it 2 days ago and I can confirm... Damn it... wanted to be first to say it!

      Indeed, which makes you wonder what on earth this project could actually be...

      Yeah that's Ra from Stargate, although I don't think he wore white robes like that in the film...

      It's clearly him as he even has the hand thingy which can be seen in the video.
