Ubisoft has 'paused' the Prince of Persia series while it considers new ideas. In an interview with IGN, Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat confirmed that the series is currently taking a break, but explained that shouldn’t be taken as a bad sign.
"Brand management is a tricky thing. It needs people's attention a lot. I think it is fair to say that, right now, Prince of Persia is being paused. We said the same thing for some other brands that suddenly popped up because a team is willing to do it."
"I'm not scared at all for Prince of Persia fans. Well find something to entertain them with in the future. Prince of Persia is part of Ubisoft's portfolio. As a matter of fact, we sometimes iterate on franchises and sometimes we give them time to breathe and time to grow, or time to rest.
"Prince of Persia is as important as any other franchise for Ubisoft. As soon as we have something to show, we will."
