Confusion alert! New Prince of Persia game to be based on movie based on game

If making a movie based on Prince of Persia: Sands of Time wasn’t already enough to get fans of the awesome videogame series nervous, now comes news of another Prince of Persia game being made by Ubisoft that is based on said upcoming movie version.

So, let me get this straight: We have the original Prince of Persia trilogy already released and a new game — said to be the first of a new trilogy — coming out later this year. And the Jerry Bruckheimer movie — announced about a few weeks ago — is based on the original Sands of Time and is starting production this summer. Now, this new videogame will be based on the movie that was based on the original game. So is it, then, a remake of Sands of Time starring a prince with the likeness of Jake Gyllenhaal? I am so confused! Wouldn’t a game based on a movie based on a game just be the game?

Now that my brain hurts I will leave it to you. Is there any possibility that this could turn out well? Any possibility at all?
