You would possibly do not forget that basic time-shifting platformer Prince of Persia: The Sands Of Time is getting a elaborate remake. Introduced in 2020, it was initially due out in January 2021. Then it was delayed. And delayed once more, because the challenge moved studios. Now it has been delayed as soon as extra, solely this time it has been delayed straight to hell.
Over the weekend experiences started surfacing that the sport was being delisted from retailers, main followers to imagine that the challenge had been cancelled. That was each true and never fairly true; whereas the sport is certainly being delisted from retailers, which means you possibly can now not preorder it, it hasn’t been outright cancelled.
That stated, and I’m not telling anybody breaking information right here, it doesn’t sound just like the challenge is in nice form. Having been in improvement at Ubisoft’s two Indian studios for years, it was solely final month that it was introduced the sport had been pulled from these groups and was transferring to the unique 2003 sport’s builders, Ubisoft Montreal as a substitute.
Saying that transfer, they stated the Montreal workforce “will now take the time they should regroup on the scope of the sport to ship you the very best expertise for this remake of an all-time basic, when it’s prepared”. Having taken a month to survey the work, issues should not have been nice, as a result of Ubisoft have now informed IGN over the weekend that “we’re now not concentrating on a FY23 launch anymore and the sport has been delisted. If gamers want to cancel their preorder they’re invited to contact their retailer. They are going to be up to date on the challenge as the event is transferring alongside.”
That’s, uh, not signal. For reference, FY23 is the monetary 12 months that doesn’t finish till the center of subsequent 12 months, so if it ever truly comes out, we’re not going to be seeing this sport for a really, very very long time.
