We could definitely use a new Prince of Persia , so here's hoping these screenshots are indeed from such a project.
Climax Studios recently posted up some screenshots (since removed from their site) for an upcoming title; the pics were labeled "tech demo" and showed off a game that looks suspiciously like Prince of Persia .
The Silent Hill: Shattered Memories developer is supposed to be working on a "character action platformer," and PoP definitely would qualify. The screenshots show a distinctly Middle Eastern-style environment and a protagonist that could very easily be the Prince. After the last installment, The Forgotten Sands , failed to perform well, publisher Ubisoft said the series would be on hiatus for a while. That was back in 2010, though, so maybe Climax is working on a new PoP for the next generation? That would be sweet .
Forgotten Sands wasn't a bad game at all ; it just failed to capture the greatness of the reboot, which dropped in 2008. Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed both games, so I'm hoping for another.
