Prince of Persia Demo “Not Planned”

Today, Prince of Persia producer Benn Mattes has stated that there are no plans to produce a demo for the upcoming game.

“Not planned,” Mattes told us at the studio earlier this month. “Doing demos of open-world games is a technical challenge; plus we’re not convinced we need to. It’s a brand that has some history, some built-in fan-base and we can benefit a little bit from that. Whether you like Sands of Time, Warrior Within or Two Thrones, chances are you’re going to love this game because there are elements of all of those in it.”

He said that “There’s just so many awful demos,” and said that releasing a demo during E3 won’t allow you to put in such a polished demo. Well, at least the game is coming out. That is all that matters, right?
