Looks like we’ll be hearing about the next Prince of Persia game before too much longer. Early yesterday morning, Ubisoft Reflections engineer Drew James tweeted a picture featuring a timeline of the Prince’s various ending in a question mark and accompanied by the text “What’s next for #PrinceOfPersia?” James has since deleted his account (and the tweet along with it), but a few enterprising screencappers on NeoGAF and VGLeaks were able to save it for posterity.

Given last week’s report that Ubisoft Montpellier is working on a 2D Prince of Persia title powered by the UbiArt Framework—and given the extreme actions taken to remove the tweet—it’s likely that James let something slip a little bit sooner than he was supposed to. With Reflections’ long history of assisting development on titles led by other Ubisoft studios, including Watch DogsJust Dance, and Far Cry 3, it’s entirely possible James is working on the title in question.

The last mainline Prince of Persia game, The Forgotten Sands, was released in 2010 to decent reviews but disappointing sales, prompting Ubisoft to put the franchise on hold.

With E3 rapidly approaching, odds are good that we’ll hear something concrete about this next entry in the franchise soon, either during Ubisoft’s annual press conference on June 9 or in the run-up to it.
