Ubisoft originally planned to release Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake in January of this year. However, the project was eventually delayed until March and just a few weeks later, the studio announced another indefinite delay. While we haven’t heard of the remake in any capacity since that time, Ubisoft provided a new message for eager fans today, although this latest update contains virtually nothing but bad news.
Revealed on social media, the team behind Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake informed prospective players that the title will not appear at Ubisoft Forward, which is the company’s next showcase event that ties in with E3 2021. In addition, it was also said that the game now has a new release window, although it is much further away than you might expect. According to this new statement, The Sands of Time Remake will now not be released until 2022. “As you may have read, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake will not be on Ubisoft Forward,” said the update that was given on Twitter. “We are making great progress for our game to launch next year, but we are not yet ready to share additional information. We will share an update as soon as we are ready. ”

While this lengthy delay is sure to be a bummer for longtime Prince of Persia fans, the fact that Ubisoft is clearly working hard to improve the title is nothing more than a good thing. When this project was revealed last year, many fans criticized how the game looked, saying that the graphics in particular did not look up to date. Clearly, Ubisoft heard those responses clearly and instead opted to put the game back in the oven to improve it.
Another reason for this long delay could be because Ubisoft wants to bring Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake to new platforms. Earlier this year, we heard rumors that the title was going to be announced for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X. While that has yet to be confirmed, such a reveal wouldn’t be shocking every time the game emerges once from. new.
