The news just does not seem to get any better for the Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time Remake out here. Not only has it been delayed over three years not, but as it turns out, Ubisoft is here to let us all know that it is now back in the concept phase of development. So do not think we are going to get some fun Prince Of Persia surprises during the next Ubisoft Forward that is coming up. They have been very specific that is not going to happen. Not only with this delay but also stating it directly to us all so we did not think we were being led off the trail of anything. Unless, this is a really, really long con they are pulling on us all here. I highly doubt that.
Outside of this news, we do not have much else to say for the Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time Remake. Not even a solid reason that it has been hit as it has with all of the delays and issues. In fact, it looks like if you pre-ordered the game back when it was supposed to drop in 2020, you can now ask for a refund for that pre-order. That is at least nice, but not something that fans of the Prince Of Persia IP are going to be overjoyed with, for sure. Now we just get to wait longer as the button has been pressed to take us all the way back to the beginning of the development process for this game. Oddly fitting given the game, but not the joke I would like to be telling right now.
Last year, Ubisoft announced that the Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time Remake project was moving to Ubisoft Montreal, where the studio that created the 2003 original would take over development. While the project is still heavily under wraps and won’t be at Ubisoft Forward in June, it’s very much alive – and Ubisoft News had a chance to speak with Producer Jean-Francois Naud and Game Director Michael McIntyre about its status, what it means to Ubisoft Montreal, and what made The Sands of Time such a unique experience.
Was this the announcement you were expecting for Prince Of Persia after waiting so long or did you see it coming? Why do you think it was really delayed out there and will it ever see the light of day? Is this just to soften the blow for when they inevitably just cancel it or will it turn into a different title? Head into the comment section to discuss it all as you so wish to do. We will keep sharing all that we can for the Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time Remake, so please keep coming back here to check it all out. Next time might be the time we have some good news to share for it all.
