News Ubisoft Montréal Takes Over Development of Troubled Prince of Persia Remake
If only they could rewind time
We've heard very little about Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake since the last delay back in October.

To try and get the project on track, Ubisoft Montréal has been called...

News Prince of Persia Remake Doesn't Look Any Better in Screenshots
We feel bad because the IP has been pretty much dead since 2010, but Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake really doesn't look very good. It's from a new Ubisoft studio based in India and it doesn't look like the project was given a particularly large budget, resulting in visuals that really don't look the part in 2020. We're sure...

News Prince of Persia Remake Hopes Reignited as Retail Listings Leak
Sands of time
Look, normally we’d treat product listings published by Guatemalan retailers with a shrug of the shoulders, but when reliable journalists like Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier comment on them – well, you kinda have to pay attention, don’t you? Here’s the story: MAX posted a page for a PlayStation 4 game named Prince of Persia...
Rumour Ubisoft Creates New Prince of Persia Twitter Account, Has Fans Hopeful
Seems legit, but...
Another Prince of Persia rumour? You better believe it.

News Footage Emerges of Cancelled Prince of Persia Reboot, Looks Rad
Update: According to ex-Ubisoft and Naughty Dog animator Jonathan Cooper, this is not gameplay footage, but a target render.

At least it's not a smartphone game
There are only two franchises we want out of Ubisoft right now: Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia.

To be fair, Prince of Persia: The Dagger of Time sounds neat: you’ll work...

News What's Next for Prince of Persia? Ubisoft Doesn't Want You to Know Yet
A princely error
French publisher Ubisoft couldn’t keep a secret if its entire corporate future depended on it, so it’s not exactly surprising to see the organisation squirming over an errant tweet from one of its employees.

I've been sceptical about the new Prince Of Persia game because the original aside I've never touched the series
I've never even played Ubisoft's sister title Assassin's Creed which was meant to be all awesome because Jade Raymond worked on it or something. Anyway, apparently the new Prince Of Persia game is meant to be really good or...
