New PoP game in the works!
If previous trademark registrations are any indication, then Ubisoft's next installment in the Prince of Persia franchise will be called Prince of Persia Prodigy. According to trademork, Jordan Mechner has locked in the next installment in the Sands of Time trilogy, as he also owns The Sands of Time, Warrior Within and The Two Thrones. Maybe we'll get more details at UbiDays or E3.

it would be nice if it used the same engine and control as AC, didn't finish a single PoP game because of controls

did u mean, didn't?

Yea the controls were a pain, and PoP2 (WoW) wasn't that good..emo prince..but the final of the trilogy thing was really great. The TT.

I still haven't played AC so i can't comment on controls on it, but i am sure it is well fine tuned.

I liked all three games but I would agree that the controls could have been better. I blame the camera angles more though.

No way, Pop controls > Assassin's Creed controls. I can't tell you how many types I've tried to wall run in AC, not to mention tap space to swing off poles. It's retarded how you have to hold down space to swing in AC. And there's no skill involved in jumping from ledge to ledge, nor in balancing. The game basically babies you.

If they did a Prince of Persia game with Assassin's Creed engine I could become the happiest man on Earth. Keep my fingers crossed.

BTW PoP controls are superb with a gamepad, I used Logitech Rumblepad when I finished the trilogy

Hell yes. It was a lot simpler than AC, and took more skill. AC is basically just switch to high profile, hold down the button, and run around, and it does everything automatically- PoP you needed to have timing and balance. It would be amazing if they made the new one in AC engine with the old controls- it would be superior to AC in every way if they did it right.
I do agree that the camera angles sucked tho.

Looks like its gonna be cel-shaded & not based on AC's engine as we suspected ..

Or it's using AC engine but is in cel-shaded. Either way, I'm not sure if I should be excited... need more pictures. It doesn't really look Prince of Persia to me.

That looks like concept art to me

Looks awsome! Im liking the art style, you can barly tell its cell shaded... more like art.

because i think its concept art
I don't think it is. Look at the shadow in the one shot and then look also at the geometry on the characters.

It looks awesome but it doesn't look very Prince of Persia to me. Maybe once more pictures come in, it might grow on me...

I think its going to be a relaunch, not a continuation of the other trilogy so you have to look at it with an open mind.

They look like real ingame shots that have been post processed a bit. If they ARE really true ingame shots, then there's actually a chance this could be somewhat playable. Just hope they don't make the outlining to bold or strong or it'll be a bit wierd.

I was half expecting some XIII style visuals to be honest.

The Prince looks a-typically EMO.

The aliasing & the low texture filtering hint that they are in-game shots.
