New Prince Of Persia Game From Dead Cells Dev Coming - Report

The game is reportedly coming to early access.


A new Prince of Persia game is reportedly being developed by Evil Empire, the studio behind Dead Cells. The game is reportedly called "The Rogue Prince of Persia" and will be released in Steam Early Access.

According to a report from Insider Gaming, it's apparently a new roguelite game and it's been in development for the last four years. The art style is also reportedly inspired by Franco-Belgian comics. While it's reportedly slated to be released later this year, it's unclear when it will be officially announced. However, it could be revealed at the Triple I Initiative Showcase on April 10, as Evil Empire will present its new project there.

Evil Empire and Motion Twin announced back in February that they would stop creating new content for Dead Cells after the release of "The End is Near" update.

Ubisoft released Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown back in January to rave reviews. Another game in the series, a remake of Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, has seen rocky development and was delayed multiple times with no clear release date in sight.

In GameSpot's Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown review, we said, "Nearly every part of Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown works so well, and the parts connect so seamlessly, that it feels as if the series has found its new genre home."
