Possible Prince of Persia Reboot Screenshot Emerges

A screenshot from what could be another Prince of Persia reboot has found its way online, sparking speculation that Ubisoft could be starting over with the franchise, which would also presumably mean that 2008's rebooted Prince of Persia won't be getting a sequel.
The image was posted on Ubisoft's official forums and bears text that reads "POP_ZERO_2". It's entirely possible that the shot could be the first hint of a Prince of Persia reboot, especially given that Prince of Persia Zero was a codename for a canned PoP game that would have aimed to do something radical with the series.
Upon closer scrutiny, you'll note that the prince character is black and the setting resembles somewhere like Egypt rather than Persia, with the clothing also looking somewhat Egyptian. It's also clearly a game that's in the early stages of development. Whether the screenshot is authentic or not remains to be seen, but a potential Prince of Persia reboot seems like a reasonable assumption to make. As ever though, take this with a pinch of salt.
