The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake was first announced in September 2020 with a January 2021 release date. It seemed like everything was set as various retailers had offers and pre-order bonuses. However, in December 2020, Ubisoft announced that the game would be pushed back to March 18, 2021. As February 2021 rolled around, Ubisoft announced it had been postponed again, this time indefinitely.
Now it looks like the development of the game has progressed, but a new release date has not yet been announced. However, Ubisoft states: “Rest assured that we will update you on the progress in a future update.”
Ubisoft has a few games in development. Some of them are in development limbo, like this Prince of Persia remake.
Skull & Bones gameplay was leaked a few days ago, although it’s unclear how far along the game actually is in development. Also, since its announcement in 2017, we still haven’t heard anything substantial about Beyond Good & Evil 2.
