One of Ubisoft’s most anticipated forthcoming titles, The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake, will not be shown at the Ubisoft E3 Presentation Forward event this weekend.
According to the studio, the production team said on social media that “we are not ready to release any further details just yet,” even though the game is progressing well.
The remake of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time will not be shown during Ubisoft’s E3 2021 Forward presentation this week, according to the remake’s official Twitter account. However, Ubisoft said that “significant progress” is being made on the game, with a release date set for 2022.

In addition to the new aesthetics, game director Pierre-Sylvain Gires claims that the remake’s camera and combat have been enhanced. The game’s creators, in particular, have incorporated a targeting system, which, according to Gires, “increased the Prince’s velocity and his ability to make fantastic feats.”
The remake will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC when it is launched. The game will cost USD 40 and feature an unlocked bonus of the original 1989 Prince of Persia.
When it comes to what Ubisoft will show off at Ubisoft Forward on June 12, you can probably anticipate some fresh Far Cry 6 footage or updates. Riders Republic and the roller derby game Roller Champions and the game previously known as Rainbow Six Quarantine are all set for release in 2021, so anticipate updates on those titles.
What is Prince of Persia The Sands of Time Remake
Last year, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake was announced as a contemporary remake of the classic action platformer from 2003. Fans, on the other hand, were critical of the original reveal’s graphics. The game was originally set to release on January 21, 2021. However, Ubisoft soon postponed it to March 21, 2021. Then, in February, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake was postponed with no new release date set. Ubisoft hasn’t said what the additional production time would be used for, but it wouldn’t be surprising if the game looked drastically different by the time it’s released.
Last week, Ubisoft announced its E3 plans, promising an hour-long event featuring updates on some of the company’s most anticipated games. Expect to witness updates on the Rainbow Six series, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and more at E3 2021’s Ubisoft Forward, which takes place at noon PT / 3 p.m. ET on June 12 — but not Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake.
