The long-awaited Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake might once again be delayed as Ubisoft decides to hand over the project to a different studio.
It was a piece of massive news that Ubisoft was in active development for the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake. The original project was handled by the two Indian Ubisoft Studios, namely Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai. However, according to the recent official announcement made by the company, it has been revealed that the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake project will now be an active project for the Ubisoft Montreal studio. With this, all duties of Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai were relinquished for this project.
According to the company’s official statement on Twitter, this decision of theirs was an important step to build on teamwork and utilize this opportunity to regroup. It is evident that Ubisoft is not taking any chances with the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake and thus changing studios after numerous delays seems to be the only viable outcome.
When is Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake actually coming?
The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake was announced back in December 2020 and had a release date of early 2021. However, with an official statement at the beginning of February 2021, the game was delayed indefinitely. The company assured us fans to keep updated with the state of development, only to receive a vital change in development, so far out in May of 2022.
About Ubisoft Montreal
Ubisoft Montreal is a capable studio section of Ubisoft. This studio is behind the creation of some of the greatest video gaming titles, including Assassin’s Creed (2007), Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Watch Dogs (2014), Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, Rainbow Six: Extraction, Hyper Scape, Assassin’s Creed Origins, For Honor, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Assassin’s Creed II, and much more.
The Ubisoft Montreal studio is, without a doubt, a very capable studio with achievements to show for it. The sudden decision to change studios for the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is in the best interest of the fans, as the things seem now. As Ubisoft Montreal is the studio, or birth pace of the classic Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time trilogy, there is no better studio to have developed the game other than them.
What to expect from Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake?
We can’t say anything for sure now, as after nearly one and a half years since the announcement, and so many years in development, the change of studio at a crucial time doesn’t look good for the current state of the game. The game might still be unfinished or unpolished, or the new developer team might take a different approach and rebuild things from the scratch. We can’t be certain about anything, thus it is better to wait for further official statements.
