What seemed to be an eternity since fans last had their hands on a Prince of Persia game, Ubisoft grew aware of the problem and granted its followers a chance to revisit the action-adventure series. During its most recent Ubisoft Forward this past September, the publisher revealed that Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time will be returning with a complete remake of the original 2003 title.

Scheduled to arrive for January this year, many fans that grew up playing the classic game are surely excited to be returning after more than a decade since the release of the initial title. Howbeit, one large concern is to why the game will only be available via then-current systems with both Xbox Series X|S & PlayStation 5 can only operate the game through backwards compatibility.

Seeing the time of the game’s launch, it is presumed Ubisoft is equipped with the resources to ship out a next-generation version of the game. But now it looks that the project is needing more time as Ubisoft Pune & Ubisoft Mumbai announce a new March release date for the title.

“We are excited to put this game in your hands, as we retell the story of the Prince and Farah in a reimagined 11th century Persia. However, 2020 has been a year like no other. Today we wanted to let you know that we are taking additional time to work on the game,” the letterhead reveals. ” We believe this is the right call to ensure we will deliver a game you will enjoy.”

While the teams utilize the extra time needed to ship Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake, perhaps the studios involved can also resolve the controversy surrounding the game’s appearance. In an interview following its announcement, Ubisoft discloses the title’s lackluster appearance was a creative decision to keep the game’s integrity of the original.
