New Prince of Persia believed to be at work at Climax Studios; developer clarifies

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

The Gamersphere was abuzz yesterday when NeoGAF users (those savvy web-sleuths) discovered something interesting on the website for Climax Studios, a developer known for such titles as Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and Rocket Knight

It was a series of images for a project referred to as a "character action platformer". What’s interesting about them was that with the design of the character, the Middle Eastern vibe of the setting, and the occasional side-scroller perspective, it looked pretty much like Climax was working on a new entry in the Prince of Persia series.

There has been little news on the franchise since the release of its most recent game, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, most of it rumors. The only definitive report came earlier this year when Ubisoft announced that development of the series was on "pause", outside of a recently-announced mobile remake of PoP: The Shadow and the Flame. However, following the discovery of Climax’s platformer, people began to assume that the franchise was getting ready for a comeback with a brand new title.

Sadly, as it turns out, it was wrong to assume that. Following initial reports of the images’ discovery, Climax pulled them from its website and then clarified the situation, telling Joystiq that they were for a prototype that had been developed last year as part of “exploratory discussions” with Ubisoft. The project never went any further.

So, for now, it looks like we’ll have to wait a good deal more before the Prince returns to the gaming scene. In the meantime, you have a look at more of Climax’s character action platformer via the images below.
