It’s been a while since the announcement of Prince of Persia Remake, the ambitious remake of the beloved “Sands of Time”, released a few generations ago.
This long-awaited remake, which Ubisoft has bravely pre-ordered on Amazon, was shown in a general lack of interest on the part of the community to go well.
The reveal of two years ago was disastrous, even beyond expectations, so much so as to force Ubisoft to make a symbolic turnaround with the production.
After years of postponements, the latest Prince of Persia Remake news dates back to six months ago. We were told that we would be seeing him again soon, but that may not be exactly the case.
The background of the development of Prince of Persia Remake must certainly have been tumultuous, considering the very long silence of these years.
Which was broken by Ubisoft just a few minutes ago with a Twitter post giving us both good and bad news.
The title is back in development in the hands of the Montreal studio, creators of the original game but … here is the release:

“This decision is an important step and the team, built around the work created by Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai, will now take the time to gather ideas about the scale of the game, to deliver the best experience for this remake of a classic. of all times, when it will be ready. “
“Take your time” and “when it is ready” (call Cyberpunk 2077 ) suggest that development will probably be restarted, or at least some time will pass before it can continue shipped. Translated: we won’t see it anytime soon.
On the other hand, the reactions to the reveal of the Prince of Persia Remake were really merciless, and it is normal that the company wants to take all the time necessary.
Although, before the continuous postponements, Ubisoft defined the refined graphics of Prince of Persia Remake as a precise stylistic choice. We admire courage.
And to think that, together with Splinter Cell, that of Prince of Persia is a name that had jumped out for a new reveal, some time ago.
Speaking of missing games: what happened to Metroid Prime 4? Eh, we’re not that far apart.
