We haven't seen a Prince of Persia game released since 2010's The Forgotten Sands, so we are long overdue a new game.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time has always been hailed as the best in the series and one that fans remember very fondly.
In 2020 it was announced that The Sands of Time would be receiving a remake in 2021.
Now, that might not best the case.
It has been announced that Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake has been delayed indefinitely.
The game was originally due for release in January 2021, before being pushed back to March 2021.
Now there is no release date for the game, leaving many players wondering what the future might hold for it.
In a tweet, Ubisoft let fans know saying,
"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."
We have seen plenty of games delayed over the last year, and plenty already in 2021, due to the current global pandemic.
This likely won't be the last game to be delayed too as developers have to adapt to trying to develop AAA titles primarily from home.
Ubisoft released an official reveal trailer back in September 2020.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake will be launching on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via both the Ubisoft Store and Epic Games Store.
It doesn't appear that the game will be launching on Steam, however it may in the future.
Nintendo Switch Port
Despite not originally being announced, it appears that the game may be getting a Nintendo Switch port.
On Ubisoft's store page for the game the Switch is listed as one of the platforms.
It also seems that the Switch version will be releasing alongside the other platforms.
Quite often the Switch version releases later, but that doesn't seem to be the case here.
Next Gen Versions
On the same store page for the game, both the PS5 and Xbox Series X are mentioned.
The listing states:
"Purchase Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake on PlayStation®4 or Xbox One and upgrade your game to the next-gen version (PlayStation®5 or Xbox Series X) at no additional cost."
There is no news on a release date for the next gen versions however, but based on this it seems they won't be released alongside the other versions.
