Prince of Persia fans have been eagerly awaiting on update on development of the embattled remake of the series’ beloved third-person action adventure entry and start of a memorable trilogy, The Sands of Time, after it was revealed back in 2020 and then suffered multiple delays along with a shift to the studio at Ubisoft Montreal and seemingly taken back to the drawing board.
Now, a very small update has surfaced from the sands, with the official Prince of Persia account on X sharing a number of posts celebrating the now-20-year-old game that included a quick mention of the remake project.
The post reads, “As you know, the passionate team at Ubisoft Montreal is reimagining this legendary story, and we are glad to announce today that the project has passed an important internal milestone and development is progressing.”
While we haven’t exactly learned what important milestone that is, it bodes well for the state and fate of the project, which was very dicey for a hot minute there.
As you know, the passionate team at @UbisoftMTL is reimagining this legendary story, and we are glad to announce today that the project has passed an important internal milestone and development is progressing.
It’s also not the only Prince of Persia game on the horizon, with Ubisoft Montpellier’s fresh 2D action platformer, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, headed to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch and PC very soon on January 18th next year.
We were lucky enough to get hands-on with Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown at this year’s Summer Game Fest, and came away impressed with what the team is cooking up, saying “The Lost Crown is simultaneously a return to roots while delivering on a fresh direction for Prince of Persia as a platformer, with a huge map to unlock and explore, a new hero, and reinvented combat that’d knock the snakes from 1989 for six.”
