Prince of Persia "Paused"

The Prince of Persia franchise is currently "paused," is Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat's answer to IGN when asked about the status of the series. "Brand management is a tricky thing," Mallat told IGN. "It needs people's attention a lot. I think it is fair to say that, right now, Prince of Persia is being paused. But we said the same thing for some other brands that suddenly popped up because a team is willing to do it." His answers seem to indicate nothing is coming of the screenshot uncovered last summer, but his comments indicate the series is not dead, just resting.

Sands Of Time was the highlight of the modern games.
I agree. I LOVED that game. I've played them all, from the original POP 1 & 2, to the early 3d one, to the latest ones. POP:SOT was my favorite.

If ubi did one closer to that, used the latest technology (don't nerf for obsolete console graphics) and promised to have no DRM, I'd kickstart another POP game. Unfortunately, I doubt it would happen, both because they'd want way too much money to get started on one, and because I highly doubt they'd commit to any of those things.

Pausing the franchise now is not a good time imo, since the brand is still fresh in peoples heads with the PoP movie and all.

This is sarcasm, right?
Because I don't think more than 5 people remember that movie, including the people in it themselves.
It wasn't that bad. It was just an average action movie though. And it didn't have a whole lot to do with the franchise. I agree with the IMDB rating of 6.6
Plus if you compare it to game movies in general, most of them suck so much it was a masterpiece lol.
