One of my favorite games of all time. I really hope they can pull it off properly.

ClayRules2012386d ago

Mine as well, absolutely love this game.

Here’s hoping they’ll put this off properly and not ruin such a beloved classic and gem…🤞🏼

Oh man ubisoft of today is not ubisoft of 2003. I’m not holding my breath on this one

ClayRules2012386d ago

That’s a fact. Such a shame, really.

If they just gave it to their main team and treat it with respect the first time round before giving it to one of their lesser studios who were only known for support work then maybe we could have seen a release date by now.


An Update on Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake

Last year, Ubisoft announced that the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake project was moving to Ubisoft Montreal, where the studio that created the 2003 original would take over development. While the project is still heavily under wraps and won’t be at Ubisoft Forward in June, it’s very much alive – and Ubisoft News had a chance to speak with Producer Jean-Francois Naud and Game Director Michael McIntyre about its status, what it means to Ubisoft Montreal, and what made The Sands of Time such a unique experience.

I love they are acting how much they love this and the care about the game

If they did they wouldn’t have given it to a lesser studio with nothing under them.

Shows you how much things can change with backlash

I am just wondering if Ubisoft will botch it like they did with the Ezio trilogy.

Especially with how much they say the buzzword "modernize"

Where the f**k is Beyond Good and Evil 2?

They avoided the GTA remaster issue, but the language around it is funny. They’re hiding a badly-developed remaster behind false passion.

I'm very interested to see if Ubisoft Montreal was able to salvage this, because despite a lot of Ubisoft hate out there, this game is still an all time classic and I want it to be awesome. I'm really glad they had the sense to pull it from the Pune and Mumbai studios when they saw the backlash. Kudos to Ubisoft for not just saying screw it, and releasing it anyways.


With Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake, Hopefully Ubisoft Has Learned from Their Mistakes

Initially, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake was to be handled by Ubisoft’s Pune and Mumbai studios in India, with an early 2021 release date. With the game delayed indefinitely, let's hope that Ubisoft can turn things around before the eventual launch.

Yeah don't treat huge franchises like shit and pawn them off to the shittiest studio you have because you think despite the quality we won't care, like we'd just buy it blindly.

SurgicalMenace475d ago

Sands of Time was a marvel and a delight in its day we all can only hope that they handle the remake with as much care as they didn't with the original.
