Ubisoft announced that development of the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time remake has been taken over by Ubisoft Montreal. Formerly in the hands of Ubisoft’s Pune and Mumbai studios, the game has shifted back to its original creator studio.
The announcement reads, “This decision is an important step and the team, building upon the work achieved by Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai, will now take the time they need to regroup on the scope of the game to deliver you the best experience for this remake of an all-time classic, when it’s ready.”
From that language, it sounds almost as though the game is being delayed again. The remake has already been delayed repeatedly, with no concrete date in sight. At the last report, the game was expected to be revealed in the 2022-23 fiscal year, meaning it could be out as late as March 2023.
As the announcement is quick to point out, the Montreal studio also developed the original Sands of Time trilogy. Ubisoft Montreal is still working on the development of Roller Champions and supporting the just-released Rainbow Six Extraction.
