This year 2020 never ceases to surprise us. The sands of time were activated this Wednesday 6 may to bring us back in 2012, at a time when a more than interesting video was shared on YouTube.

Usually so quick to spot any leaks, and even find things that ordinary people could not see without a little hack, the Internet – and us with – took eight years to discover a gameplay sequence of a certain Prince of Persia Redemption.
It would probably be the episode developed by Ubisoft Montreal for the PS3, la Xbox 360 and the PC that had been thrown into oblivion in 2011. The video in question was posted on March 1 2012 and went completely under the radar until today, will know why.
What is certain, is that PositiveLauncher, the channel that broadcast this extract to the taste of God of War in which the Prince plays acrobats in an eastern city attacked by a very big monster, caught the eye of someone who seems to be well aware. Nothing less than Marc-André Belleau, technical director for the studio mentioned above. In the comments, he questions about the provenance, what can be seen as confirmation that this is a big leak. That we discover with a lot of delay, certainly, but a leak anyway.
Jonathan Cooper, Scottish animator who worked for BioWare, Ubi et Naughty Dog, was questioned by this content on Twitter and gave some details.
Wow – haven’t seen this in ages. Amazing work from animation director Khai Nguyen (For Honor) and team. This target game footage (pre-rendered game pitch) inspired our own pitch for Assassin’s Creed 3 as they did such a great job making it look like real gameplay. https://t.co/U9cy7v4fNp
WOW – it's been a while since I last saw this. Incredible work of director Khai Nguyen (For Honor) and his team. Ce target game footage (a pre-rendered game pitch) inspired our vision of Assassin's Creed 3 and they did an amazing job for it sounds like real gameplay. Unfortunately Ubisoft has always been quicker to cancel Prince of Persia games due to the fact that Jordan Mechner still has the rights and this has an impact on profits. I would love to have another one anyway. I always wanted a PoP in contemporary Iran.
So it’s not gameplay, but it looks like. So, is it a coincidence that all this appears today ? Jean-Michel Complot may see it as a maneuver by the company of Yves Guillemot, to test the interest around the brand before, perhaps, a return to form for this hero who started his career with Jordan Mechner, in 1989. We, we will just tell Jean-Michel to calm down and avoid the 5G antennas.
