Mysterious Prince of Persia-like screenshots finally explained

You may remember several months ago, some screenshots surfaced that many speculated were Prince of Persian in origin. They came up again yesterday when Ubisoft Montreal’s CEO stated that the Prince of Persia franchise had been paused. Speculations were that it was taking place in some sort of Egyptian setting that we couldn’t quite make out.

Well, we were right and we were wrong, it turns out. It was an Egyptian setting, but it wasn’t Prince of Persia. It was called ‘Osiris’, and a rough-cut trailer was uploaded to Vimeo five months ago as part of the composer’s portfolio.

Between this and Ubi Montreal’s statement about the franchise yesterday, Polygon went straight to the source to clear it up. It was definitely A Thing, they replied, but said Thing has been shuttered.

“The content in question was from a Ubisoft project that is no longer moving forward,” An Ubi rep replied.

Head over to Vimeo to check out what exists of the trailer and let us know what you think of it. Can you see any little hints in there we may have missed out on?
