Fans who have been waiting on updates the upcoming Prince of Persia The Sands of Time Remake are going to be sorely disappointed at the latest news, as Ubisoft has made the decision to delay the game and vacating its planned March 2021 release date.

As it reads, the dev team responsible for the game has made decision based on feedback after the reveal trailer was shown during Ubisoft Forward last year.
Since announcing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake in September, we saw an outpouring of feedback from you on this beloved franchise. It is your passion and support that is driving our development teams to make the best game possible. With that said, we have made the decision to shift the release of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake to a later date. This extra development time will enable our teams to deliver a remake that feels fresh while remaining faithful to the original.
As pointed out, much of the fans who saw the reveal trailer found the game’s graphics to be lackluster — especially since it was using the latest iteration of the Ubisoft Anvil engine. Hopefully this extended time will do wonders and give the developers the proper motivation to make a remake worth praising.
