The last Prince of Persia franchise was The Sands of Time, after which there is no longer a Prince of Persia game release on Ubisoft; instead, they launch their own IP, the Assassin’s Creed series. People often considered Assassin’s Creed to be the successor to the Prince of Persia franchise, given the similarities; gameplay, stealth action, assassin and more. Now, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed is one of the best franchises in the business, it is becoming strong and unstoppable.
There are rumors that Ubisoft stops making Prince of Persia because Ubi is trying to avoid paying the license to develop the Prince of Persia game and is focusing instead on his own IP, so the marketing and everything else will be yours . This is based on an employee of Ubi who talks to 4Chan, says:
“Forget Prince of Persia. It will never come back. The reason why AC exists at all is because PoP meant Ubi has to pay for license, since they don’t own the IP. AC is Ubi’s own IP, so merchandising and all that **** is theirs to keep. PoP is financially not worth it. “
In some ways, the rumors could be true, since Prince of Persia IP originally belongs to its creator, Jordan Mechner, whenever IP is used through merchandising or video games, Ubisoft must pay the license or what they call royalties. . It will be a costly registration for Ubisoft, in particular ubisoft is known for publishing game suites.
