Back in September, Ubisoft revealed the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake, with the claim it would launch in January 2021 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. However, following the reveal some criticisms were levelled at how the remake looked. So, three months later in December Ubisoft released some more news for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake, stating the game would be delayed until March 18th, 2021. However, that date is no longer relevant when it comes to the game’s release date as Ubisoft has delayed the remake again, and given no date. A statement has been released about the delay.
“Since announcing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake in September, we saw an outpouring of feedback from you on this beloved franchise. It is your passion and support that is driving our development teams to make the best game possible. With that said, we have made the decision to shift the release for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake to a later date. This extra development time will enable our teams to deliver a remake that feels fresh while remaining faithful to the original. We understand the update might come as a surprise and we will continue to keep you posted of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake. In the meantime, we want to thank you for all your ongoing support.”
The last official console game was The Forgotten Sands which was based on Disney’s film adaptation starring Jake Gyllenhaal. The new remake will also come with the original 1989 Mac version of the game
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.
