Report: Ubisoft canceled plans for modern day Prince of Persia game

Can you imagine seeing a Persian prince jumping and swinging around modern skyscrapers? According to a new report publisher Ubisoft at one time had such plans for its Prince of Persia game franchise. Computer and Video Games reports that Jonathan Jacques-Belletête, a former Ubisoft team member (now working at Square Enix on Deus Ex: Human Revolution) stated that he worked on a version of the Prince of Persia series "in the contemporary world."

According to him, "
Think a bit Day After Tomorrow, but replace the snow with sand and everything. It was really wicked." Unfortunately the game was canceled for unnamed reasons. Ubisoft went on to make the cel-shaded Prince of Persia revamp and this year released the disappointing Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.
