We've heard very little about Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake since the last delay back in October. The fan favourite getting a modern coat of paint should be cause for celebration, but it's clearly been having issues behind the scenes. To try and get the project on track, Ubisoft Montréal has been called in to lead development.
Previously, the remake was being handled predominantly by Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai. While those teams will continue to contribute to the game, it's the Montréal studio that'll (hopefully) bring the game over the finish line. "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," reads the statement.
As far as we're aware, the game is pencilled in for a release sometime between now and March 2023. However, with a shift in dev duties, it's possible the game could be pushed back yet again. Obviously we'll have to wait and see how things shake out.
