New PoP is “spiritual successor to Sands of Time”

Monday, 2nd June 2008 21:20 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Speaking to CVG at Ubidays last week, Prince of Persia producer Ben Mattes said that the upcoming franchise reboot will hark back to the greatness of Sands of Time. Alienation’s off the menu, apparently.

“You’ve seen some dark stuff because that’s kind of what we want to show you at the start, but more than anything before this is the spiritual successor to the Sands of Time,” he said.

“There’s tons of platforming and there’s that mystical theme that was so critical in Sands of Time. If anything I think we’ll see the fans that lapsed after Sands of Time come back.”

Hoopla. We don’t know what else to say.

    This is what they said about The Two Thrones. Look how that turned out.

    I’d be very surprised if this was “bad”.

    Well, the other two weren’t ‘bad’. They were just ‘sub-optimal’. :-D

    You still didn’t explain precisely what a “comm dev manager” is!

    I don’t know what you mean, Blerk.

    It’s not a trick question – what is a comm dev manager? What does he actually do? I know what a development manager is, but what’s the ‘comm’ bit all about?

    Community development manager. He’s in charge of building and managing Ubi’s online community, I assume.
