Prince of Persia 'paused,' says Ubisoft Montreal CEO

The Prince of Persia franchise is currently "paused," but fans needn't worry about its future, Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat said.

During a recent interview, Mallat told IGN that the series is currently taking a break while the company considers new ideas.

"Brand management is a tricky thing," Mallat said. "It needs people's attention a lot. I think it is fair to say that, right now, Prince of Persia is being paused. But we said the same thing for some other brands that suddenly popped up because a team is willing to do it."

Mallat continued to say that Prince of Persia is just as important as any other franchise for Ubisoft, and that the company will find something to entertain fans with in the future.

"As soon as we have something to show, we will," Mallat said.

In August 2012, images what appeared to be a Prince of Persia game set in Egypt surfaced; however, no official confirmation ever came of them.
