'Chrissy, I know a few other people who feel the same way. However, its creator has given new hope today that the Prince may yet make a long-awaited comeback down the line. Of course, there's certainly a fan base out there hungry for more Prince of Persia, so we'll have to wait and see if Ubisoft and Mechner can come together for a new game.

In response to a tweet from a fan, who loves the franchise and lamented its long absence, Mechner responded that he was working on it, and was "doing [his] best to make it happen!". Ubisoft Montréal also piped up: "Unfortunately, the Prince of Persia franchise is still on pause at the moment".

Since then, Mechner has had his hands in several other Prince of Persia games, including the initial reboot that occurred in 2001 when the video game company Ubisoft took over the series' publishing rights. Most of the games normally tend to have the same storyline where both Assassins and the Templars search for the Apple of Eden.
