Ubisoft have announced that, due to 2020 being an utter bum of a year, the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is going to be delayed a couple of months and will miss it’s original January release date and instead will arrive on March 18th 2021 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The Prince has popped up recently but not in his own game, he guest starred in a For Honor event. Other than that the Prince was also seen on mobile way back in 2013. The Shadow And The Flame was set after the events of the original game (which Ubisoft are now dubbing ‘Classic’) and boasted an “epic journey” with “visually-stunning 3D” and “intuitive controls” designed for touchscreens, which means gesture-based touch controls, or a virtual joystick.
