Ubisoft has finally officially announced that a new Prince of Persia game will be released around the 2008 holidays (Summer? Christmas?) but has yet to announce the subtitle of the newly mentioned installment of the franchise but it's rumored to be either Prince of Persia: Ghosts of the Past or Prince of Persia Prodigy.
There are too many details to be mentioned apart from the obvious facts that it will be a totally new prince with new characters and storyline; this will come as a pre-release of the anticipated Prince of Perisa: Sands of Time movie being produced by multi-million action producer Jerry Bruckheimer in 2009.

The game will be released for all the game consoles including the Playstation 3, the Xbox 360 and the PC. There is no scheduled release for the Wii. A separate game with different storyline and characters is in the works for the Nintendo DS system.
