A new leaked image – that was initially posted at Ubisoft’s official forum – indicates that a new Prince of Persia game is under development. According to the image, this new Prince of Persia will support DX11 on the PC and might be called Prince of Persia: Zero 2. This could also mean that this new Prince of Persia game could be a title for next-generation consoles. Ironically, this scene seems to be running with a really low framerate, meaning that Ubisoft needs to start optimizing its engine.
From the looks of it, this Prince of Persia game might be using the AnvilNext engine that is used in the latest Assassin’s Creed game. Moreover, we should point out the high levels of AA that were used (could be SSAA since this is from the PC build), as well as shadowing system which seems enhanced from the one present in all previous Ubisoft titles. These two features may be the ones causing this abysmal performance we are witnessing in this image, so we can assume that the game will run better without this kind of AA level. Although – let’s be honest – there is nothing special in this image and can’t even come close to Square Enix’s Agnis Philosophy tech demo.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
