Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time Remake Changes Lead Developer Studio

Ubisoft has announced that the team leading the remake of Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time have been switched.

Previously led by Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai, the lead development role has now been moved to Ubisoft Montreal, one of the bigger studios under the French publisher and developer.

“This decision is an important step and the team, building upon the work by Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai, will now take the time they need to regroup on the scope of the game to deliver the best experience for this remake of an all-time classic, when it’s ready,” the statement reads as posted on the Prince Of Persia Twitter account.

The remake for Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time was first revealed in 2020, targeting a January 2021 release. After the reception of the initial footage, the game has since been indefinitely delayed.

The Sands Of Time was a new entry to the series based on Jordan Mechner’s 1989 PC game initially released for the Apple II computer. Ubisoft’s take on the series was well-received when it was first released in 2003 thanks to its parkour-inspired platforming and the time rewinding system. The success spawned a trilogy, a reboot in 2008, another sequel continuing from the trilogy saga and a film.

With the change of lead developer, Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time Remake will need more time before it’s ready.

Another classic Ubisoft game from the ’00s, Splinter Cell, is also getting a remake, currently in development at Ubisoft Toronto.
