September 10, 2020 Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake is official.
It’s official – Ubisoft is remaking Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. After a load of early leaks and rumours, Ubisoft has confirmed the return of the prince at today’s Ubisoft Forward showcase. The game is due to launch in January 21, 2021 and today we got an idea of what to expect.
The reveal of Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake, as it’s officially called, showed off new visuals to go alongside the the story of the 2003 classic. You’ll once again be running along walls and turning back time each time you die.
Please act surprised. Ahead of Ubisoft’s September showcase an eagled-eyed Restera user called AndrewDTF – nice – noticed a leaked banner image for the new PC game on the Russian Uplay store (thanks, Eurogamer). Since then, someone else on Twitter has come forward with some video capture of the banner ad, and a Reddit user has also shared an image online pointing towards the game’s existence.
Oh, and that’s not all either. VGC spotted a listing for the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake on Amazon, and other fans have pointed to an image of the game in one of Ubisoft’s Instagram posts promoting the Ubisoft Forward event later today – deary me.
All of this follows other recent reports and rumours. Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier explained on the Triple Click podcast that Ubisoft is planning to use tonight’s stream to reveal “a bunch of games like the Prince of Persia remake that was leaked”. VGC then reported on that and said its sources at Ubisoft indicated that the claim was correct.
Ubisoft is, as usual, aboard a leaky ship, but sadly, we won’t be getting a Skull and Bones update. We do know it’s got a new vision and recruits to push towards the Skull and Bones release date. We should get a better look at it next year.
