Most people were aware that the Assassin's Creed series has pretty much killed off the Prince of Persia series before the first game was released back in 2007. I have played the first game and do admit that it was an impressive game back in the day on who you can Assassinate next on your list and travel across a wide-range of land just like most open-world games such as Grand Theft Auto or Red Dead.
Both Assassin's Creed Unity and Rogue being released just before the end of 2014 giving both disappointing reviews and multiple glitches especially for Unity which has suffered most the on glitches and problems luckily Ubisoft have managed to fix the problems for it. With Assassin's Creed Chronicles released this week on PS4, Xbox One and Steam; Assassin's Creed Chronicles is a 2.5D game the series consists of three games, all of which are currently in development. Ubisoft have announced last month that China will be accompanied by Chronicles: India and Chronicles Russia and are set to be released towards the end of this year.
I have read a few reviews online including gameplay the reviews have been mixed between 6/10 to 7/10 fair scores at least but this has upset a few fans of the series. However when I've first saw the trailer for this the other day the 2.5D platforming really did remind of the Prince of Persia franchise, the last games we saw was the 2008 reboot and Disney's version which was released in 2010 and also there was Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame which was a high-definition remake of the game was made available for both iOS and Android devices. But if you compare the 2D series of Prince of Persia to Assassin's Creed Chronicles there is a little resemblance between both games, the paintbrush art style for Chronicles is impressive to look at in high-definition don't get me wrong.
But these signs what I'm seeing at the moment could well be possibilities that Ubisoft could well bring back the Prince of Persia franchise at some point especially if future Assassin's Creed titles either get repetitive on missions or more mixed reviews both good and bad this could well be a good option for them if they consider it unless they look at another franchise or think of something completely new or creating a new IP but with the same mechanics as Assassin's Creed series has had in the past. I am quite curious to knowing more about Assassin's Creed Victory due to the fact that I love the history around the Victorian era, but the real idea is that it’s very likely that Ubisoft will use references for Jack Ripper is the best known name given to an unidentified serial killer active in the largely impoverished areas in and around the Whitechapel district of London in 1888. Having tools and weapons that Jack the Ripper used to kill his victims could likely be used in Assassin's Creed Victory this may explain the backstory or before the events of someone else being Jack the Ripper.
This is an odd topic to be talking about when looking at a current franchise and a past franchise both from the same game publisher, you can see the difference if you look closely on gameplay wise and platforming there is a connection.
Are you planning on picking up Assassin's Creed Chronicles this week? Or do you think it's time Ubisoft brought back Prince of Persia?
