Ubisoft has effectively canceled its Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake and appears to be starting over again according to ribbed.
The remake of the most popular title in the series was first revealed with a trailer at Ubisoft’s Forward event in September 2020. At that time, players quickly criticized it for its poor visuals.
This resulted in multiple delays, and then the project was effectively taken off the board and put back into development. The game was originally compiled by Ubisoft Pune in India but after delays it was returned to the hands of Ubisoft Montreal – who created the original game – a year earlier.
according to new Developer Q&A Published by Ubisoft on Wednesday, the project has now effectively been rebooted and is “currently in the design phase.”
on Twitterthe game’s account confirmed that the title will not be at Ubisoft’s June Forward Show but adds that it is “very alive” even if it returns to an “early stage” of development.
Once Montreal took over the project, producer Jean-François Naud says they looked at feedback from the community and found their own way of presenting the game. He adds that gamers shouldn’t expect to hear more about the game this year.
Ubisoft has pushed several titles in the past before, most notably “Skull & Bones” which was first revealed at E3 2017 and has been completely retooled over the years. The June show is expected to finally give us a release date for that.
