Ubisoft announced today that one of the best-selling franchises of all time, Prince of Persia, will be getting its next installment scheduled to be released by this year’s holiday season. Ubisoft Montreal, the same development team responsible for the original Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and Assassin’s Creed, are keeping hush about the details of the game but confirmed that the game will launch on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

The publisher failed to confirm the rumors that the title would be Prince of Persia Prodigy, but instead left an absent subtitle during its announcement. What they did reveal was that the 2008 game will be “opening a new chapter in the Prince of Persia universe, featuring a new breed of gameplay and illustrative art style.”

Ubisoft will also fashion an entirely specific game for the Nintendo DS, featuring a unique storyline and new characters.
