Today the Prince of Persia Twitter account posted that the upcoming title will be changing development teams from Ubisoft’s Mumbai and Ubisoft Pune studios to Ubisoft Montreal. The post notes that Ubisoft Montreal is the studio that worked on the original Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and that the team will “regroup on the scope of the game” indicating that perhaps the Mumbai and Pune studios had hit a wall in the development of the remake.
The game was first revealed in September of 2020 with a release date of January 21st 2021, it was then delayed to March of 2021. The game was then delayed until sometime during before March 2023. While this announcement doesn’t confirm a delay for the game, it is a clear indication that the game is still deep in development and changing development studios like this suggests that the game still has quite a way to go before it is ready.
The Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake is currently set to release on PC, Play Station 4, and Xbox One.
