Ubisoft has published an article on its official website that answers questions surrounding the rather troubled Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake and its development. While its responses are basic, the French publisher confirms the game “is not cancelled”. Any pre-orders the remake held were cancelled back in June, but Ubisoft explains this is because the project no longer has a confirmed release date, so “existing pre-orders have been cancelled and refunded where applicable”.
The firm says more details will follow in future updates. However, it hasn’t attached a time frame to when that news will be shared. What you shouldn’t expect, though, is remakes of other entries in the Prince of Persia franchise like Warrior Within and The Two Thrones. “Beyond Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time there are currently no plans to remake any other Prince of Persia title,” the blog post states.
Still only officially announced for PS4, it’s been more than two years since the remake was first announced. After a poor showing, it has been delayed multiple times over and now finds itself in the hands of Ubisoft Montreal. “This decision is an important step and the team, building upon the work achieved by Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai, will now take the time they need to regroup on the scope of the game to deliver you the best experience for this remake of an all-time classic,” a statement said in May earlier this year.
