One of the premier hack-and-slash franchises that has been gone for a decade is making a comeback...or is it?
It's at least what I hope. But what I do know is that the name Prince of Persia 6 has been registered by Ubisoft. This has given fans of the dormant franchise hope for a real comeback.
Now we all know there have been more than 6 Prince of Persia games, but when you start count at the Sands of Time, this would be the sixth game, after Warrior Within, The Two Thrones, Prince Of Persia, and The Forgotten Sands.
Last week, Ubisoft spoiled the reveal of the game Assassin's Creed Vahalla, by registering the domain hours before the official reveal. Could this be another instance of that? Or is it a ruse?
The good people of Reddit have noticed this registration, and have written an update that could annihilate the great feeling about this long awaited comeback.They said that the domain name, princeofpersia6.com, could possibly be fake. But how do they know this?
The domain register is go daddy, instead of the default register of Ubisoft, which is Gandi SAS. Not to mention the domain status code is ClientHold, which means it hasn't been paid for, so it could be fake. But at the end of the day, who really knows.
Something is brewing up later this week, however. Something that adds a great layer of thickness to this story.
Microsoft is going to be sharing a bunch of third party Xbox Series X games later this week, and that will include the previously mentioned Assassin's Creed Vahalla.
Again, this will be getting shown by Ubisoft...but is that all they will show? Is the domain a real thing, or is it fake?
Rumours of a new Prince of Persia game have been making the rounds for a while now. But it's not the only rumour. We have also heard rumors of games through the years, such as a new Splinter Cell game, that never came to fruition.
This all just poses the question - is this what Prince of Persia fans have been waiting for, or is this too good to be true?
