Ubisoft India's Prince of Persia: Sands of Time remake delayed by 2 months
Earlier this year in September, it was announced that Ubisoft Pune and Mumbai would be working on the remake of one of Ubisoft's most popular titles- Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. Released back in 2003, the game came out for PCs, PS2, Xbox 360 and the Gamecube. The game was hailed as a generational masterpiece owing to its tight controls and future forward game design systems.
Now, the release date of the remake of Prince of Persia: Sands of Time which is being made by Ubisoft Pune and Mumbai in India, has been pushed back by two months. This is a trend we are increasingly seeing in the gaming industry and as long as the extra time is being used to iron out issues, it is all warranted.
Why is Prince of Persia: Sands of Time remake delayed?
The game has been delayed so that the developers can "work towards providing players the best possible experience of playing Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. " The developers also stated that this is the best way to ensure that they put out a game that all players- new and returning, will enjoy.
Hardcore Prince of Persia fans may be dismayed at this news, but the fact of the matter is that the extra time will be used to polish the game and give it a better finish, which, in the long run, will help players enjoy the game more.
The last Prince of Persia game came out almost a decade ago, after which Ubisoft shifted focus to titles such as Assassins Creed, The Division series and Rainbow Six Siege, the tactical shooter. This remake is a good way to rekindle people's love and passion for the series.
The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake was originally scheduled for a January 2021 release but the delay pushed the launch date to March 18, 2021. You will be able to play the game on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for a price of $40.
As of now, there is no word on the next generation versions of the game, but using backwards compatibility, it should be playable on these newer consoles.
