Ubisoft has just announced that Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake, no matter its strong anticipation, won’t be a part of this year’s Ubisoft Forward. While I believed the game would definitely be among the games showcased, it turned out the opposite. Even if the development progress is fleeing at a great pace, the developers have stated that The Sands of Time Remake will not be in Ubisoft Forward.
According to the official letter by the developer:
Hello Prince of Persia fans!
Ubisoft Forward is around the corner and we wanted to use this time to thank you for the amount of support you have shown us in the past year.
As you might have already read, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake will not be in Ubisoft Forward. We are making great progress for our game to release next year, but we are not ready to share any additional information just yet. We will share an update as soon as we are ready.
Until then, we wanted to express our appreciation for your continuous support, as well as your patience with us on our journey. We’re looking forward to the moment when we will be able to share more with you!
It might be hard to boil and understand why Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake won’t be at this year’s Ubisoft Forward, purely because it has already faced multiple delays. In December 2020, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake was delayed to March 18, 2021. That is two delays in just a couple of months.
While 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. The estimated release span is still unknown, unlike before.
Ubisoft shared this on Prince of Persia’s official Twitter profile.
