Assassin’s Creed Was Originally Prince of Persia: Assassins

Xbox 360

An outtake from a video “Video Games Mix 2002-2009” shows how Assassin’s Creed used to look in the early concept development phase acting as a sequel or reboot to the Prince of Persia franchise.

Since Assassin’s Creed first made its début at the X06 Xbox Industry Event in Barcelona 2006, many had believed that Assassins Creed was the natural spiritual successor of the Prince of Persia franchise. Ubisoft had never confirmed nor denied it, but from the early concept video released this week, it proves to be correct that many of the idea’s for the original Assassin’s Creed had been developed from the Prince of Persia: Assassins concept.
