People won’t be playing the new Prince of Persia game in March 2021. There is yet another delay. This time, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake doesn’t even have a release date. Instead, the new Twitter announcement only said it will appear at “a later date.”
As is common with such delays, the reason this time seems to be quality control. When the update appeared, it specifically cited the goal of making something both “fresh” and “faithful.”
Here’s the full announcement from the game’s Twitter account.
Since announcing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake in September , we saw an outpouring of feedback from you on this beloved franchise. It is your passion and support that is driving our development teams to make the best game possible. With that said, we have made the decision to shift the release for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake to a later date. This extra development time will enable our teams to deliver a remake that feels fresh while remaining faithful to the original.
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. In the meantime, we want to thank you all for your ongoing support.
This new Prince of Persia game first appeared via store leaks in August 2020. Then, Uplay itself even updated and shared images from it too early. It was officially revealed at Ubisoft Forward in September 2020 and assigned a January 21, 2021 release date. But then, a delay pushed it to March 18, 2021.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is in development for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
