Ubisoft is gearing up to unleash a new chapter in the iconic Prince of Persia franchise, titled 'The Rogue Prince of Persia,' developed by Evil Empire, the studio behind the acclaimed Dead Cells. This highly anticipated release marks Ubisoft's first day-one debut on Steam since 2019, signalling a significant move for the gaming giant.

What to Expect From The Rogue Prince of Persia

Insider Gaming revealed that 'The Rogue Prince of Persia' will offer a fresh take on the series, introducing a Roguelite gameplay experience that promises constant free updates and evolution based on community feedback.

In development for the past four years, the game's inception stemmed from discussions between Evil Empire and Ubisoft at the Game Developers Conference in 2019, shortly after the establishment of Evil Empire.

Drawing inspiration from Franco-Belgian comics, the game is poised to deliver a unique visual style, adding a distinctive flair to the beloved Prince of Persia universe. While the official announcement date remains undisclosed, 'The Rogue Prince of Persia' is slated for an Early Access launch on Steam later this year, offering players a chance to delve into its immersive world and contribute to its development journey.

The transition to Evil Empire's latest project comes on the heels of Motion Twin's decision to cease content creation for Dead Cells, a title that garnered widespread acclaim and sold over 850,000 copies during its Early Access phase on Steam.

With Evil Empire at the helm, 'The Rogue Prince of Persia' aims to build upon this success and captivate audiences with its innovative approach to the franchise.

Meanwhile, amid ongoing speculation surrounding the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake, Ubisoft remains tight-lipped about its development progress.

However, a glimmer of hope emerged in November 2023 when Ubisoft announced the game had achieved an 'Important Milestone,' sparking renewed interest among fans eagerly awaiting its release.

In an exciting update, Insider Gaming has confirmed that 'The Rogue Prince of Persia' will be unveiled at the Triple-i Initiative on 10th April 2024, with its Early Access debut scheduled for 14th May 2024, on Steam.

As anticipation mounts, fans can prepare to embark on a thrilling new adventure in the legendary world of Prince of Persia. We have limited information about the game as of now and we'll get an official look tomorrow!
