Ubisoft has announced that Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake will arrive a bit later. This was announced today by the official dev team, who solidified their focus on more successful completion. According to the letter, the delay is caused by polishing factors that require an extended development period.
In December 2020, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake was delayed to March 18, 2021. Now the game faces yet another delay, which doesn’t seem to satisfy the fans at all. The official announcement was posted on Prince of Persia’s official Twitter profile.

It seems that Ubisoft’s attempt to bring this classic adventure back to life will require more time to finalize things and polish the game completely. While the first time the delay was justified by the fans, we doubt they’ll comprehend the same this time. Nevertheless, the developers need and thank the fans’ support, and they look forward to completing this masterpiece.
