So apparently the original Assassin's Creed was first developed as a new chapter in the Prince of Persia series. Ubisoft must have realized how awesome it was and made it its own thing at some point.
The company recently posted these concept images to their Facebook page. The game looks like it would be similar to what Assassin's Creed eventually became, though with a slightly more Arabian feel.
Scan through the gallery and let us know what you think in the comments or on Twitter. Would you have liked Prince of Persia to go in this direction or are you glad it was made into Assassin's Creed?
