It sure sounds like new Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell games could be on the way

Brand new entries in the Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia might be on the horizon.

That's according to chief creative officer Serge Hascoet who told Game Informer that he was fans of both franchises, but that it was a matter of finding internal resource to build those games.

"I love Splinter Cell. I love Prince of Persia. I can't disclose any information at this time, but I can say we are fighting for resources. It's not a question of will, it's a question of means."

Hascoet was also askeed whether there was an possibility of working with external developers, but said that the focus or Ubisoft at this point in time was on internal work.

"The focus is on internal development," he said.

"We don't say no, but we aren't looking for external development partners especially hard right now. We are open to smaller opportunities if there's a win-win scenario with a small team and we believe in it. This is what we are looking for: a small team doing something with a small scope but with the highest production quality. Also, we are looking for partners on more arena sports games, like Rainbow Six. We are not looking for partners to develop big worlds or big new brands, because it's hard."
