Ubisoft will celebrate its presentation next Saturday, June 12 Ubisoft Forward, event framed in E3 2021 and Summer Game Fest in which they will talk about games already announced, such as Far Cry 6 and Raindow Six Quarantine, plus other surprises. However, if you were hoping to see more of Prince of Persia The Sands of Time Remake at E3, forget it: Ubisoft has confirmed that it will not be.
Not only that: in this new statement they have confirmed that the game is scheduled for launch in 2022. It is not a new delay, since the last update of the state of the game, of February 2021, already moved it away to an undetermined date , although now we already know that it will not be this year, but the one that comes (hopefully).

“As you may have already read, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake will not be in Ubisoft Forward. We are making great progress on our game to launch next year, but we are not ready to share any additional information yet. We will share an update as soon as we are ready. “
The statement closes by thanking the fans for their continued support and patience, in which it is being a much more complicated development than expected. Originally advertised for January 2021, was soon delayed, too optimistically, to March 2021, although it did not take long to disappear from the calendar.
Reception to the game, shown at another Ubisoft Forward event in September last year, was largely negative. The Ubisoft India Team justified the quality of the graphics, highly questioned by fans, as an artistic decision, to maintain a fantasy style, less realistic than other games in the studio.
Prince of Persia Remake is the first game developed entirely by Ubisoft’s division in India, which until now had been limited to being a satellite studio supporting other games of the brand. Up to 170 people have worked in its development for three years (so far), and they argue that there were no budget cuts.
Prince of Persia The Sands of Time Remake will be out in 2022, and at the moment only versions have been confirmed on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Today what appears to be one of the games we see in Ubisoft Forward has been leaked: a new game with the signature of Tom Clancy’s, but taking elements of Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell and The Division, called BattleCat and focused on multiplayer.
