The Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time Remake Is Coming In 2026

Should've used quicksand.

Ubisoft has given a very small update on its long-delayed remake of the PS2 classic, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, debuting a short 30-second teaser trailer during this morning’s Ubisoft Forward showcase that revealed pretty much nothing about the game other than its new release window – the year 2026.

Yep, you’ve still got a couple years to wait on this project, which insiders recently claimed has had its development completely overhauled since being moved to the teams at Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Toronto.

You can watch the teaser trailer below:

Ubisoft Toronto has seemingly found itself on the front lines of reviving some much-loved sixth generation Ubisoft titles, having already been working on a remake of the original Splinter Cell and now also joining the folks at Ubisoft Montreal in crafting the embattled Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake.

The studio broke the news that it was joining development in a post on X last month, writing:

Ubisoft Toronto is joining the development of the remake of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time!

“We’re excited to rewind time and bring our studio’s creativity, expertise and updated tech to refresh this beloved classic with our partners at Ubisoft Montreal.”

Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson recently dropped a set of claims based on “developer sources” that paint a general picture of what the Sands of Time remake now looks like.

The outlet had reportedly been provided actual footage of the in-development remake, and stated that it now looks vastly different from what we saw all the way back in 2020. Henderson said the game looks completely overhauled, and sources have said that the project – which was originally in the works at Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai before being moved to Ubisoft Montreal (and now Toronto) – 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.
