The remake of the famous game from Ubisoft continues to chain setbacks and keeps pushing back its release date.
We learned recently, Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbaiwhich were on the development of the remake of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Timehave just seen their project go into the hands ofUbisoft Montreal, father of the original and the trilogy. Both studios have experienced many setbacks, this handover shows Ubisoft’s desire to take matters into their own hands.
Unveiled in September 2020, the remake of the game had already suffered many delays and release date changes. Originally planned for January 2021it had been postponed for two months, but in February, the game was postponed again for 2022.
Unfortunately, we’re decidedly not ready to get our hands on the remake of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Because Ubisoft has just revealed that the game would not be released during the fiscal year 2023, and at the same time announces its immediate and indefinite postponement.
“We are proud of the work done by Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai, and Ubisoft Montreal will benefit from their learnings as the new team will continue the work to deliver an excellent remake.”[…] “As a result, we are no longer targeting an FY23 release and the game has been delisted.” – A Ubisoft spokesperson, as reported by PC Gamer.
In addition, players who had already pre-ordered the game can already cancel their pre-order.
“If players wish to cancel their pre-order, they are encouraged to contact their retailer. They will be updated on the project as development progresses.”
The choice ofUbisoft to entrust the project to the Montreal hub is not insignificant, because in addition to being at the origin of the saga, the publisher knows that this studio will be very able “to continue the work to deliver a great remake.”
