In the Ubisoft Official Forums, this photo was posted up by user blueobelix. Written at the bottom of the image is “POP_Zero_2″, because of this some have speculated that this is the first image of a Prince of Persia reboot called “Prince of Persia Zero.” Prince of Persia Zero was first referenced by Jacques-Belletete, an ex-Ubisoft art director, in 2010. When describing the reboot, Belletete stated,
“So I had this little team, and [our Prince of Persia] was actually in the contemporary world. Think a bit Day After Tomorrow, but replace the snow with sand and everything. It was really wicked. But it got cancelled, and then we did all the Far Crys.”
The reboot was also said to have introduce radical new mechanics to the franchise. Ubisoft has not released a statement in reference to the photo as of yet.
