Ubi just confirmed the next major game in the Prince of Persia series is subtitled The Forgotten Sands. It'll release for "consoles and handhelds" next May.
There's virtually no detail on the title, other than it'll "feature many of the fan-favorite elements from the original series as well as new gameplay innovations".
More soon, hopefully. PR after the break.
Update: There's going to be a VGA trailer of The Forgotten Sands at the VGAs on December 12. Thanks, onlineatron.
