Rogue-like Prince of Persia reportedly on the way from Dead Cells studio Evil Empire

Following its well-received Prince of Persia revival early this year, Ubisoft is reportedly readying a further series outing for a 2024 release – this time in the form of a Prince of Persia rogue-like from Evil Empire, the studio responsible for Dead Cells’ impressive post-launch support.

That’s according to Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson, who says the plan for the project, titled The Rogue Prince of Persia, is to launch into Steam early access later this year – marking Ubisoft’s first day-one Steam release since 2019 – then expand the title based on community feedback.

Henderson says The Rogue Prince of Persia will “receive constant free updates and evolve over time”, but specifics – beyond claims its art direction is heavily inspired Franco-Belgian comics – are limited. The game is said to have been in development for four years now, starting shortly after Evil Empire’s inception, but there’s no word on when it might be formally announced – although Evil Empire is set to reveal something during the Triple-i indie showcase next week.
