'Prince Of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake' Further Delayed, Delisted From Retailers

A rogue prince reluctantly joins forces with a mysterious princess and together, they race against dark forces to safeguard an ancient dagger capable of releasing the Sands of Time, which can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world.

Originally released in 2003, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time redefined action adventure gaming with its innovative gameplay, compelling story and lovable characters. Rewinding time once again, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake has been developed from the ground up with the Anvil game engine.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is Ubisoft’s first ever full-scale remake, with a fresh approach to combat, puzzle solving and rewinding time. The new design, made with updated technology for today’s gaming systems, include new camera angles and fully remade sequences. Additionally, players will get to see a beautiful and fully reimagined ninth-century Persia through the eyes of the developers in Pune and Mumbai.

Relive the Prince’s journey for redemption after unwittingly releasing the Sands of Time on the Sultan’s Kingdom. As with the original, players will embody the heroic Prince alongside the daughter of the Maharaja, Princess Farah, as they navigate the palace, battle sword-wielding enemies, maneuver trap-filled rooms and ultimately confront the evil Vizier, who controls the Sands of Time. Players continue to progress as they combat enemies and master the art of parkour. Yuri Lowenthal returns, reprising his role as the Prince’s original voice and motion capture actor and players will be introduced to actress Supinder Wraich, who now plays the role of Farah.

Originally scheduled for January 21, 2021, then postponed until March 18, 2021, delayed until further notice, Ubisoft is now planning to release Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake in 2022/2023, but with the current development team switch, according to the lasted Ubisoft statement it anybody's guess, especially now that retailer started delisting/canceling pre-orders.

"The development of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake will now be led by Ubisoft Montreal. We’re proud of the work achieved by Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai, and Ubisoft Montreal will benefit from their learnings as the new team will continue the work to deliver a great remake.

As a consequence, we are no longer targeting a FY23 release anymore and the game has been delisted. If players wish to cancel their preorder they are invited to contact their retailer. They will be updated on the project as the development is moving along."

Players who pre-order the game will have access to the Back to the Origins set, which includes:

  • The Original Prince outfit from the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
  • The Prince’s Original Weapons set
  • A Classic Filter that changes the look and feel of the game on the screen, just as if players were playing the game back in time

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Epic Games Store, Ubisoft Store and UPLAY+) for $39,99.
