Ubisoft Delays Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake Again

Ubisoft added more sand to the hourglass as Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake gets delayed once again.

Ubisoft is delaying Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake one more time, the company announced on Twitter. This go around, Prince of Persia remake is delayed "to a later date" with no solid estimate of when that might be.

The remake was originally delayed in December, pushing the January release date back to March so the developers could deliver a polished product. Then, they cited the challenges of developing a game during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This time, though, Ubisoft's statement only mentions the delay will help them create a game that feels new and fresh.

The original vision for the remake was streamlining gameplay and adding some modern touches. Whether this statement means Ubisoft judged the Prince of Persia remake was too close to the original after all and wants to move away from the source material isn't clear, since the statement is a touch vague.

Whenever it does release, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for $39.99.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
