Ahead of E3, Ubisoft teases new Prince of Persia game

Ubisoft employee tweets picture teasing new game and then deletes entire Twitter account.

Yesterday, a Ubisoft engineer tweeted an image that appears to tease that the publisher is working on an all-new Prince of Persia game.

The tweet, from Ubisoft Reflections engineer Drew James, included an image showing off the various versions of the Prince, with a question mark over the last slide. It also asked, "What's next for Prince of Persia?" James' entire Twitter account has since been removed, though VGLeaks and NeoGAF were able to capture the tweet in question. Ubisoft has not commented on the matter since.

The image's arrival comes just days after a French website claimed that Ubisoft was working on a new 2D Prince of Persia game using Rayman Legends' UbiArt Framework engine. The last official word from Ubisoft on the Prince of Persia franchise came in June 2013, when Ubisoft marketing executive Tony Key said the brand has a "really strong legacy."

The most recent entry in the Prince of Persia series was 2010's Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii, as well as DS and PSP.

If Ubisoft has a new Prince of Persia game in the works, it could be announced during the company's E3 media briefing on Monday, June 9 at 3 p.m. PDT. GameSpot will be in attendance, bringing you all the news as it happens.
