Prince Of Persia Creator Hints At Series Revival

Prince of Persia, a popular game series back in the 80s and 90s has a loyal following, ready and waiting for another game and perhaps the future holds it in the cards. Maybe. In response to social media inquiry, Prince of Persia creator, Jordan Mechner, hinted at a series revival. Turns out, quite a few people want another franchise release including model Chrissy Teigen, and he’s “doing his best” to make it happen.

After several years, the original Prince of Persia creator has spoken up about his critically-acclaimed video game series, one so popular that a film was created in 2008. While this isn’t solid evidence that another game is in the works, it certainly raises hopes. Plenty of fans spoke up to praise and encourage the path toward a revival of the franchise, wherein Twitter users responded with unbridled excitement. In fact, some variation of the 2008 version was a popular request.

While others are simply already all-aboard the hype train, responding to Mechner with series of hilarious gifs demanding this to happen. After all, what better time to do remastered games or an entirely new installment of an already well-known franchise? With the retro craze and the fact that kids and teens from the era that the game first began are all grown up and ready for more.

Since Ubisoft developer a Prince of Persia game alongside Mechner, the Montreal branch included their own official response on Twitter:

According to Ubisoft, the series is on pause on their end, but that isn’t to say some finagling couldn’t happen and it would continue without them. On the other hand, perhaps it could be a grand reunion with Mechner once more? What do you think of the original Prince of Persia creator dropping hints at a revival?

Do you think Ubisoft should have their hand in it? Or is this an idea completely out of the question impossible? Let us know in the comments section below or start a conversation on Don’t Feed the Gamers Facebook page.
