In the early 2000s, the Prince of Persia franchise was perhaps one of the most successful gaming franchises around, producing multiple games that were usually all received well by the fans and critics alike.

This week, model and TV host Chrissy Teigen posted on Twitter about how she had enjoyed Prince of Persia and wondered if the franchise was still alive.

Fortunately, it seems that the originator of the series, Jordan Mechner, is trying to bring it back. As reported by SegmentNext, Mechner said that "Chrissy, I know a few other people who feel the same way".

Unfortunately, "we're doing our best" doesn't mean it's happening just yet.

There are separate competitions for the best drama film as well as the best comedy and musical picture. But it was this speech from the one and only Oprah Winfrey that everyone is talking about.

Ubisoft is now focused on Assassin's Creed franchise which is still going strong with the launch of Assassin's Creed Origins. The gameplay, moves and even wall climbing are similar characteristics that the protagonists from the two franchises embody. Ubisoft Montreal - the studio which would most likely lead a new Prince of Persia title, says the series is still "on pause".

There might be a slight chance that we see a revival of the once extremely popular action-adventure series from the PS3/Xbox 360 era, Prince of Persia. No doubt there are many gamers out there who have fond memories of the series and would love to see it return.

Do you think Mechner will be able to revive the Prince Of Persia franchise? Let us know by commenting in the comments section below.
