KEY POINTS

  • Ubisoft sparked speculations that they are working on a new "Prince of Persia" game by registering a new domain name
  • The game studio claimed "PrinceofPersia6.com," with the nameservers set to them
  • There have been rumors recently that Ubisoft is developing a remake of "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time"

A new “Prince of Persia” game might be in the works.

In a surprising move that sent fans into a frenzy, Ubisoft registered a domain name for “Prince of Persia 6.” The development was first discovered by a Reddit user who noted that the nameservers of the domain have been set to the game studio.

Ubisoft’s decision to register the domain name sparked rumors that they are working on a new installment for the popular franchise. It has been a decade since the main “Prince of Persia” series in “Forgotten Sands” was released, so the clamor for a new version is really high.

However, fans should take the rumors with a grain of salt and temper their expectations, as Ubisoft is yet to address the speculations. For what it’s worth, it is possible that the France-based developer is only claiming the domain name in case they pursue the game in the future.

With that said, the game might not yet be in development or there are no plans to make it at the moment.

Another possibility is that Ubisoft is just protecting its IP. After all, “PrinceofPersia5.com” – which was registered in 2005 – redirects to their main website. Considering this, the game studio might also do the same for “PrinceofPersia6.com”

Interestingly though, there have been several rumors about a new “Prince of Persia” game in recent months. In fact, last April, two notable leakers seemingly suggested that Ubisoft is working on a remake for “Prince of Persia: Sands of Time.”

Additionally, Ubisoft staged a limited-time “Prince of Persia” event in “For Honor.” The event hyped up several fans, but it also started rumors that the game developer might be planning something related to the classic action-adventure platformer.

Besides, some fans found it weird that they would be using an old game for an event while they have newer titles that they can do a crossover with.
