Get this: I'm one of those crazy people who really loved the last Prince of Persia game. No, no the last one... the last last one. The one with Nolan North and the cel-shading. I was sort of hoping (blindly) that Ubisoft might continue down this path but, according to Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat the series is being "paused".
But what does that mean exactly? Well, it means that Prince of Persia is in a holding pattern until Ubisoft decides what the next logical step for the series is.
"I think it is fair to say that, right now, Prince of Persia is being paused," explained Mallat. But was quick to reassure fans that Prince of Persia will return in some shape or form.
"[W]e sometimes iterate on franchises and sometimes we give them time to breathe and time to grow, or time to rest," he said. "Prince of Persia is as important as any other franchise for Ubisoft. As soon as we have something to show, we will."
