Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake delayed indefinitely

Must read


Ubisoft has delayed Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake indefinitely to ensure its quality. The game was ad last September with a launch date of January 21 before it was pushed to March 18 back in December. We’re not sure when to expect the long-awaited remake of the 2003 classic.

Games official Twitter account shared the following statement:

Ubisoft released Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time in October 2003 and it became an instant classic thanks to its groundbreaking parkour-style platform (later adopted in Assassin’s Creed and countless other games), mechanics of manipulation of time and a charming narrative. The game was loved so much that it even got a live-action movie starring (for whatever reason) Jake Gyllenhaal.

The remake, led by Ubisoft India, aims to retain the gameplay of Sands of Time, but with contemporary tweaks, which include a modernized (and optional) control system. The CG cutscenes are being remastered and the game dialogue re-recorded using the original vocal cast. It all sounds great, but the one thing fans seem universally doubtful about are the graphics.

While it looks a lot sharper, Sands of Time Remake isn’t the graphical overhaul that many fans have been hoping for or expecting (especially compared to recent Resident Evil remakes). Ubisoft responded to these criticisms by saying that the presentation was an artistic choice meant to highlight the fantastic vibe of Prince of Persia as opposed to other remakes as well as the publisher’s more realistic offerings such as Assassin’s Creed. Still, fans continue to object to the look of the game, so it’s possible this new delay has something to do with Ubisoft giving in to revamp the graphics a bit more.

I’m a huge Prince of Persia fan, so this latest deadline stings, but if it guarantees a better product, go for it. Every time Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake releases, it will arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. New-gen specific versions were originally available, but that could very well change thanks to the delay. I guess only time will tell.
