Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake

Publisher Ubisoft and developers Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai have delayed Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake from its previously planned January 21, 2021 release date to March 18, 2021. It will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Epic Games Store, Ubisoft Store, Uplay).

Here is the message from the development team on the delay:

Hello, Prince of Persia fans!

During our Ubisoft Forward digital conference, we proudly announced the return of the Prince with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake.

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. With that, the release date for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake has been moved to March 18, 2021. We believe this is the right call to ensure we will deliver a game you will enjoy.

Thank you for your patience and continued support for Prince of Persia and we hope you stay safe and healthy this holiday season.

—The Development Team
