And in the end, this is the least likely Ubisoft game to be released in 2023, or perhaps ever. Which is very sad.
Original 2003 Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time It was a revelation. An exceptional game that reinvents how all third-person action games are played, with an amazing time-rewinding mechanic, and a great 3D platformer. Sadly, no one else has had the sense to copy them, and 20 years later we’re still stuck in a morass of action games killing us endlessly, rather than letting us continue. Oh, and there was a Jake Gyllenyhaal movie to rub salt in the wound.
A remake has been announced in 2020, with an ambitious release date of January 2021. Spoiler alert: It didn’t, and it might have been for the best, given how awful it was in the trailer above. Then it hopefully only delayed until March 21st, before they seemed to admit to themselves that it looked like a PS3 game, and kicked it on the road. Later that year, Ubisoft said it would appear in fiscal year 2022-2023, then took it from Indian developers Ubisoft Mumbai and gave it to Ubisoft Montreal, before announcing another delay this past May, without even guessing at the fiscal year.
Come last November, things looked even worse when Ubisoft canceled all pre-orders and refunded everyone. Perhaps it’s an instructive lesson on why you shouldn’t pre-order games that don’t exist yet. publisher He insists that the game has not been cancelledbut a new release date has not yet been suggested, which means this is unlikely even in 2024.
But wait, it will probably come out Before Beyond Good and Evil 2.
