It's been two years since Ubisoft had surprised us all by announcing the big one return of Prince of Persia with the remake of the Sands of Time chapter. Unfortunately, today we know as much about the project as we did then, and there have been very heated discussions by enthusiasts. Now, after years of silence, Ubisoft has returned to talk about its remake, clarifying the state of play and what the future of the historic saga could be.
The fate of this highly anticipated remake does not seem to smile on the project, but according to the latest statements that come directly from Ubisoft it seems that something is moving, even if minimally. With the publication of a FAQ on its official website, the transalpine company has decided to answer a handful of frequently asked questions that the public had turned to the project that had disappeared from the scene for too long.
First of all it is confirmed that the Prince of Persia remake The Sands of Time has by no means been canceled, and indeed, the development of the project is moving forward thanks to the efforts of Ubisoft Montréal. In all this, however, the French company has not yet revealed a better defined launch date, making sure to update fans as soon as there is more detailed and concrete information about it.
