First impulse is to get excited because it's a game set in ancient Egypt.

Then you realize that Ubisoft can't design open worlds or melee combat if their life depended on it.

Setting is cool
Black protagonist is cool

Big muscles and killing aren't cool.
Gameplay will probably be AC platforming with God of War combat.

I'm on a wait and see approach.

Is the video legit?
I hope so considering that I'd really like a new IP from Ubisoft that can take the place of AC and also I love ancient Egypt as a setting. Would be really cool to see it announced for PS4/Xboxnext at E3.

This probably spawned from the rejected settings for AC 3.

I'm very sceptical though, Ubi can't make an open world game without dumbing the gameplay down so it becomes non existing. Ideally it will be The Sands of Times platforming with the first GOWs inventive level design.

The game is real, so there's no reason to think the video is fake by any means.

PoP needs a vacation. Loved the style and fluidity of the 2008 overhaul, but the "Can't Die" mechanic should never have existed.

And if/when this game comes out, the OT needs to have "SLOW MOTION HERO" in there.

I F*CKING LOVE EGYPT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I LOVE THE DESERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I always wanted an AC set in Egypt mostly just for the setting.

Hell, the other day I was posting about how I wanted God of War to deal with the Egyptian gods, again, mostly for the setting.


Oh yes, Ubi might be back on top as my favorite publisher next gen.

Yeah I was just reading a few of the comments stating that it's a fake, that there is a scene taken from 300 and bla bla.
But if the game has been shown to the press during last E3 then it's not fake.

That's the major issue with Ubi's open world games: they build cool places and don't really know what to do with them afterwards (I have yet to try FC3 though). But the egyptian setting got me curious, as well as the hero's look.

Taken from the PoP thread:

It has been far too long since Ancient Egypt was truly expanded upon and explored in the gaming industry. This looks amazing, even so early in development.

Count me as sold, Ubisoft, even though you're massive c**ts with your DRM.

You know where Egypt is located, right? The time period this game takes place in makes sense for there to black people with dark skin. Don't let "Prince of Egypt" be your only surce of knowledge on this matter.

Prince of Egypt had black people. You're thinking of The Ten Commandments perhaps?

Sort of trailing off the comparisons to Stargate, what if this was a new I.P, set in Ancient Egypt but had some Sci-fi vibes/themes rolled into it? Not Stargate themes obviously, but fresh ideas.

I would jizz all over the fucking place.

Polygon has a statement from Ubisoft. The game is canceled.

Update: "The content in question was from a Ubisoft project that is no longer moving forward," a Ubisoft representative tells Polygon.

Basically it goes as follows:

1.) Ubisoft was making a sequel to Prince of Persia 2008 that got cancelled.

2.) The team started on Prince of Persia Zero, a series reboot which also got cancelled.

3.) Around the time of Prince of Persia Zero, Ubisoft also started a new IP called Osiris that was sort of like Shadow of the Colossus meets God of War in Egypt.

4.) Sometime after Prince of Persia Zero's cancellation, they tried to turn Osiris into Prince of Persia Zero 2.

5.) The transition didn't go well, so they turned Prince of Persia Zero 2 back into Osiris.

6.) Osiris was cancelled sometime after E3.

Or, you know, your average Ubisoft production timeline. This is how they have 8000 employees and so little major AAA output. :P

Ubisoft has a lot of concepts. Some get further along in development than others. They'll have something else to show other than AC, I'm sure.

The PoP3D and PS2 trilogy were more Prince of Arabia/Andalusian Arabia.

I think the problem is ancient Persia is just not that cool of a setting,old arabian settings (including Egypt,Andalusia,Damascus) are way better.

So they're really beating on Watchdogs to be their next big thing.

I still hope we can have PoP 2008 sequel sometime.

Here's the more fleshed out story:

1.) Ubisoft was making a sequel to PrinceofPersia 2008 that got cancelled. The remaining Parts of Prince of Persia 2008 sequel was used in Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands Wii.

2.) The team started on PrinceofPersia Zero 2, a series reboot which also got cancelled.

3.) Around the time ofPrinceofPersia Zero 2, Ubisoft also started a new IP called Osiris that was sort of like Shadow of the Colossus meets God of War in Egypt.

4.) Sometime after PrinceofPersia Zero 2's cancellation, they tried to turn Osiris into PrinceofPersia Zero 3. (But code named Zero 2 as it actually entered production) after Prince of Persia Zero(which was supposed to be a futuristic Prince of Persia, but was cancelled for Prince of Persia 2008).

5.) The transition didn't go well, so they turned PrinceofPersia Zero 2 back into Osiris. This is when Jordan Mechner said this was not new Prince of Persia.

6.) Osiris was cancelled sometime after E3.

What a disappointment, so basically this was a POP reboot as people speculated months ago.
But now that the POP series has been put on hold this is basically canceled.
What a shame. Still I hope they have new IPs for next gen consoles that the can take the place of the now boring, exhausted AC franchise.
