"We're Doing Our Best" To Revive Prince Of Persia, Says Creator

Share

The first game in the Prince of Persia series debuted in 1989 for the Apple II home computer, and since then there's been 14 games in the series, most recently The Shadow and the Flame remake for iOS and Android.

As seen in the tweet below from Jordan Mechner's official Twitter account, the Prince of Persia creator responded to model and TV host Chrissy Teigen's post about how she had enjoyed the series' games and wondered if the franchise was still kicking. As reported by SegmentNext, Mechner said that "Chrissy, I know a few other people who feel the same way". As it so happens, Mechner wound up seeing Teigen's tweet and explained to her that he and a handful of others are trying to garner interest in reviving the series.

Unfortunately, "we're doing our best" doesn't mean it's happening just yet.

In the early 2000s, the Prince of Persia franchise was perhaps one of the most successful gaming franchises around, producing multiple games that were usually all received well by the fans and critics alike.

The mid-00s saw the release of three Prince of Persia titles before Ubisoft moved on to the Assassin's Creed franchise. However, by the end of the PS3/Xbox 360 era, the series seemed to be put on ice and the Assassin's Creed franchise appears to have taken its place. Do you have fond memories of the older games? Now, like many of us, she wants to know what's happening with Prince of Persia.
