Long-suffering Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake, which was announced in 2020 and harshly criticized by the press and players, has once again been postponed. Now the game should not be expected in the 2023 financial year, i.e. it will be released no earlier than May 2024.
Rumors of another game postponement have emerged after some retailers, such as GameStop, began removing the possibility of pre-purchasing the game.
Ubisoft’s official comment on this is: “The development of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake will now be led by Ubisoft Montreal. We’re proud of the work achieved by Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai, and Ubisoft Montreal will benefit from their learnings as the new team will continue the work to deliver a great remake.”
Very strange statement, because after the transfer of the remake from Ubisoft Pune and Mumbai to Ubisoft Montreal, the press leaked some very sharp comments and accusations from both sides.
“We are no longer targeting a FY23 release anymore and the game has been delisted. If players wish to cancel their preorder they are invited to contact their retailer. They will be updated on the project as the development is moving along,” added a representative of Ubisoft.
