Over the weekend, Ubisoft forum user blueobelix posted a "leaked screenshot" to the official Ubisoft forums, claiming it comes from a new entry in the Prince of Persia series. The screenshot (below right) is labeled "POP_ZERO_2" and its focus is a muscular, dark-skinned character.
The screenshot appears to stem from an early build, as the image shows the game running at 13 frames-per-second, suggesting the game is not ready to be shown publicly.
The "POP_ZERO_2" screenshot would seem to indicate an additional reboot or series spinoff or simply the second in a series of images. A Ubisoft representative told GameSpot, "Ubisoft does not comment on rumors and speculation.”
In February, a supposed Ubisoft 2012 release calendar indicated a new Prince of Persia game would ship in 2012. Ubisoft called this schedule inaccurate.
