The Prince Of Persia: Sands Of Time Remake Has Apparently Been Completely Overhauled

A complete overhaul.

While Ubisoft has been fairly quiet about its troubled Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake since it assured eager fans last year that, “the project has passed an important internal milestone and development is progressing,” Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson has dropped a fresh set of claims based on developer sources that paint a general picture of what the remake now looks like.

The outlet has reportedly been provided actual footage of the in-development remake, and states that it now looks vastly different from what we saw all the way back in 2020. Henderson says the game looks completely overhauled, and sources have said that the project – which was originally in the works at Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai and was then moved to Ubisoft Montreal – has been built from the ground up a more “realistic approach” which includes a total visual overhaul, new animations, new mechanics for combat and parkour, new motion capture, writing and more.

The report also claims that Yuri Lowenthal, who voiced the Prince in the original The Sands of Time and can be heard in the remake’s initial announcement trailer, is no longer involved in the project. You can read the full report here, the details of which have naturally not been confirmed and so should always be taken with a hefty grain or two despite Insider Gaming and Tom Henderson’s generally-solid track record when it comes to Ubisoft leaks.

Ubisoft has seemingly been trying to kick off a new era of The Prince of Persia, having just launched Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown earlier this year, which we gave a huge 9/10 with Steven saying, “I thoroughly enjoyed The Lost Crown. It took me a little under 18 hours to finish the game with quite a bit of exploring off the beaten track along the way – and the next day all I wanted to do was pick the game back up get to more exploring. It’s got compelling exploration, great feeling movement, engaging combat and satisfying puzzles. Genuine innovation in the genre and smartly integrated accessibility features make The Lost Crown a game I heartily recommend.”
