Axio’s Stephen Totilo offered additional potential details.
Not sure if any of these are new dates, but Prince of Persia Remake, Division Heartland and Rocksmith + are slated for 2022-2023 release (so, April 1 2022 or later)

The remake is being developed by Indian studios Ubisoft Mumbai and Ubisoft Pune. Upon release, the title will feature new character models, improved graphics, and re-recorded voice performances. Feedback for the announcement trailer involved comments suggesting the graphics seemed outdated. The developers responded that the look of the game is an intentional choice that was made to help the title stand out.
It is now expected to release for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One during the fiscal year ending in March 2023. The original title was released in 2003 on the Game Boy Advance, Game Cube, PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC.
