Spectacular Concept Art Reveals Details From Ubisoft Montreal's Cancelled Sandbox OSIRIS
A never-before-seen series of concept artwork has made its way online via Reddit, allowing us to take a look at some of the characters we could have seen in Ubisoft's Orisis, an ambitious title that was supposed to kick off a new game series. The unannounced Ubisoft Montreal project was cancelled in January 2013.
Although we know next to nothing about the mysterious Osiris game, it is believed that it would have been a full-blown Prince of Persia reboot, featuring an ancient Egypt setting and a dark-skinned protagonist.
This short description definitely sounds very similar to 2017's Assassin's Creed: Origins, so chances are that the Ubisoft Montreal–developed blockbuster was actually a secret spiritual successor to the scrapped title.
The game's leaked — and also unfinished — announcement trailer was focused not only on the game's Medjay-esque main hero, but also a plague of insects and an earthquake, suggesting that Osiris would've been set in biblical times, with The Plagues of Egypt potentially playing a key role in the project's plot.
