Prince of Persia Sands of Time 1

The hotly anticipated Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake, originally due out in January 2021, has been delayed again. You may recall the release being moved out of its aforementioned release window into March 2021, before being pushed into the organisation’s following fiscal year, meaning it was due out by 31st March, 2022 at the latest.

Now a new financial report from the French firm confirms that it will deploy some time between 1st April, 2022 and 31st March, 2023. In the franchise’s first Twitter update since June, a message signed by the dev team said that “development of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is still underway” and that “we’re motivated and inspired by your feedback”.

It continued: “We will update you on our progress in the future and want to thank all of you for your unwavering support and patience.” Obviously, the reception to the initial reveal wasn’t exactly a positive one, but it almost feels like production has gone back to the drawing board here. Don’t expect to be playing this for quite some time.
