Ubisoft shelved a Prince of Persia game in 2011

After releasing Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands in 2010, Ubisoft Montreal began work on a new entry in the series. The project, which would have landed on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and perhaps a Nintendo platform given the franchise’s past – was canned one year later.
Christophe Prélot, a senior level artist at Ubisoft, lists the shelved Prince of Persia as being “FPP”. That means the game was in a first playable publishable stage – it may have been nothing more than CG before being scrapped.
Ubisoft stated earlier this week the Prince of Persia series has been “paused”. The series may not resurface for quite some time, but Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat nonetheless said the IP is “as important as any other franchise” for the company.
