Assassin's Creed Started Out As A Prince Of Persia Concept


Posted May 7, 2012 - By Adam Rosenberg

Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series is one of the most recognizable in the games biz today, but you might be surprised to learn that it actually started out life as a Prince of Persia spin-off, called Prince of Persia: Assassins. Early concept footage for the game that might have been was discovered by Superannuation in a work reel belonging to a former Ubisoft sound designer (via Eurogamer).

You don't really get a sense here of of how Prince of Persia fits into what you're seeing, which is probably why Assassin's Creed grew into its own thing. There's a lot that's familiar for fans of Ubi's history-trotting franchise, however. Skip to 1:30 for that footage. There's some other unreleased stuff here too, including a look at a never-released 3D Indiana Jones game.
