KEY POINTS

  • Ubisoft is set to release "Assassin's Creed Valhalla" sometime this year
  • A new leak claims that the game developer recently registered the domain name "Prince of Persia 6"
  • The new "Prince of Persia 6" leak resparked rumors about a new game installment for the popular franchise

Many “Prince of Persia” fans believe that a new installment of the action-adventure game from the yesteryear is coming soon. Online whispers have started to spark online following a leak accidentally made by game developer Ubisoft. The gaming studio reportedly registered the domain for “Prince of Persia 6,” which suggests the possibility of a new series installment.

In the subreddit  GamingLeaksAndRumours, a Reddit user shared that Ubisoft reportedly registered on May 4, 2020, the domain name “Prince of Persia 6.” The Redditor claimed that it was registered by Gandi, a French domain name registration company. It is believed that princeofpersia6.com would be the own Domain Name Servers (DNS) of Ubisoft for its upcoming title.

It is worth noting that Gandi is also the same company that registered the much-awaited title “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla” a few hours before the game publisher officially  unveiled the game. Although a domain name registration does not essentially confirm the presence of a new game, in this case, “Prince of Persia 6,” whispers online from reputable industry insiders, are rife. Shinobi, a credible insider, recently claimed that Ubisoft is currently developing a new “Prince of Persia” game.

However, in 2005, the “Prince of Persia 5” domain was registered, but nothing was announced or released related to the domain name registration. Comicbook recently pointed out that the domain registration of “Prince of Persia 6” is shady. It noted that it was registered by a third-party instead of Ubisoft. Additionally, it underlined that the registrar of the domain is GoDaddy instead of Gandi SAS, which is the default registrar of the French game publisher.

The site further discovered that the domain registration currently has a Client Hold status. In other words, it is not yet paid. Back in 2013, Ubisoft’s Alain Corre shared that the new “Prince of Persia” installment would drop when “we feel it is ready, when the creators have brought something interesting.” He added that, like all other franchises, developers are ‘cooking’; some are cooking at a fast rate, and some take a longer time to cook; nevertheless, developers are cooking.

The details about the domain registration of “Prince of Persia 6” are a bit shady, and it is safe to take this latest information with a good measure of salt.
