Game News Prince of Persia: Intention video resurfaces eight years later
Definitely, Prince of Persia is making a lot of talk at the moment, although no title is officially under development. Today, a strange video has surfaced, arousing the curiosity of the players.
Presenting what appears to be an excerpt from a certain Prince of Persia: Redemption, developed within Ubisoft Montreal, but which would have been abandoned in 2011. The reality, however, is a little more complex than that, to the point of react Marc-André Belleau, technical director from Ubisoft Montreal, and Jonathan Cooper Scottish author and host having notably worked on Assassin's Creed III. It is the latter who enlightens us a little about the provenance and nature from the video:
Wow – haven't seen this in ages. Amazing work from animation director Khai Nguyen (For Honor) and team. This target game footage (pre-rendered game pitch) inspired our own pitch for Assassin's Creed 3 as they did such a great job making it look like real gameplay. https://t.co/U9cy7v4fNp

So this video is actually a note of intent, and is absolutely not an extract of a Prince of Persia game that we would have captured. Remains to know how this video, unique content published on the PositiveLauncher channel, was able to remain out of sight for more than eight years.
