Ubisoft’s upcoming Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake has had its release date pushed back again, now for the foreseeable future, according to the company’s latest update on the game’s progress.

“[W]e have made the decision to shift the release for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake to a later date,” the developers tweeted today. “This extra development time will enable our teams to deliver a remake that feels fresh while remaining faithful to the original.”

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake was revealed last September with a January 2021 release window before being pushed back to March 18 a few months later. The project is being headed up by Just Dance series producer Annu Koul out of Ubisoft’s studio in Pune, India.

“We understand the update might come as a surprise and we will continue to keep you posted on the progress of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake,” Ubisoft’s statement closes. “In the meantime, we want to thank you all for your ongoing support.”

  • After the garbage they showed in the trailer, I’d like to hope that’s for a major overhaul. When the remake looks worse than an emulator’s internal resolution scaling being cranked up, you’re doing it wrong.

    • While the character models looked worse than the character models in e.g. The Forgotten Sands, the environments in the trailer looked great.

      I do hope they actually get the chance to finish off and release the game though. It would be a shame for it to quietly disappear.

      • The character animations and models left a lot to be desired and looked unfinished and the environments felt a bit off to me. Hopefully this time is used to make sure the remake that comes out is polished and gets the art team love it deserves.
