Remember the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake? Yeah, Ubisoft announced it back in 2020 and after a short delay, it was a mere month out from launch before the plug was pulled once again in early 2021. Well, it's not sounding any closer to release thanks to a brief update from Ubisoft.
To put it simply: the game is effectively delayed indefinitely, for a second time. Ubisoft says that a different development team is now leading the project, and it needs more time to regroup and refocus on the remake.
That team is Ubisoft Montreal; the developer who created The Sands of Time series in the first place. While the news will likely add another significant delay to the game's release, at least the team says we'll get news on their progress in a future update.
As to why the developer switch has happened, we're not quite sure. Reception to the remake's visuals were, let's say hit-and-miss back in 2020, with multiple delays following said reception. For now, we're not sure when Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake will actually come out, but hopefully it's not as far away as it seems.
What do you make of this news? Disappointed to see another delay? Let us know in the comments!
