Initially scheduled for release in 2021 but repeatedly postponed, Ubisoft’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake has been restarted, with Ubisoft Montreal taking up production from Ubisoft Pune.
According to a new developer Q&A and FAQ published by Ubisoft on Wednesday, the Sands of Time remake is now “in the conception phase.”
The Sands of Time remake won’t be at the Ubisoft Forward exhibition in June, the official Prince of Persia Twitter account stated, “but fear not: it’s very much alive.” To reiterate, it’s still in the “early stage” of development.
A post from the official Twitter account of the Prince of Persia said, “But fear not: it’s very much alive“:-
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake won’t be at the upcoming Ubisoft Forward, but fear not: it’s very much alive.

In a private conversation with colleagues at Ubisoft, producer Jean-Francois Naud stated,
“In terms of the development stage, we’re in conception right now.” “Since we took over the project, we’ve been looking at feedback from the community and finding our own way of delivering the game.”
“Now, we’re building up the team, defining the priorities, putting prototypes together, testing elements, and looking at how we can include community feedback in the development as well.”
“It’s still in an early stage, and players should not expect to hear more about the game this year, but rest assured that we’re all putting our strengths and heart into this project.”

There is no set release date for the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time reboot, and Ubisoft has canceled all pre-orders that have already been placed. In September 2020, Ubisoft announced that it would rebuild the Sands of Time and release it for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC early next year.
The remake was abruptly, but temporarily, postponed, and then permanently until Ubisoft decided to start over—the platforms on which Ubisoft will not have disclosed the revitalized remake.
