Prince of Persia Sequel In Development?

News has leaked out that Prince of Persia author has patented a new title for the franchise

After moving more than a million copies in a month when it was first released, it’s no surprise to hear that Ubisoft are probably already working on a sequel, but are keeping mum.
According to website Superannuation, Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner has filed a trademark for the title Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.

A movie of the game is set for release in either 2010 or 2011, and some pundits are unsure as to whether the game will be standalone or part of the hype that will no doubt surround the movie.

We’re guessing there will be at least a standalone version of the game – after all anything that is a sequel to something that shifts one million copies in a month is bound to be popular when it hits the shelf, movie or no movie.
