Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake won’t be included at Ubisoft Forward event

It seems like we’ll have to wait a while longer to see any more of the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake. An announcement from the game’s Twitter account revealed that it wouldn’t be included in Ubisoft’s upcoming E3 showcase event.

The post was made to ensure that fans didn’t build up any expectations only to be let down. “We are making great progress for our game to release next year,” wrote the game’s development team in the post, “but we are not ready to share any additional information just yet. We will share an update as soon as we are ready.”

The game was originally revealed last September and received a mostly negative reception. Critics chastised the trailer’s graphics for looking subpar, with some saying the game’s original release boasted better visuals. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake was originally set to release on January 21, 2021, before being delayed indefinitely.

A message from the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake dev team:

At the moment, it’s not clear when we’ll see any of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake again. Today’s post from the game’s Twitter account ended with this statement: “We’re looking forward to the moment when we will be able to share more with you!”

The Ubisoft Forward event is set to take place at noon PT on June 12. While the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake won’t be present at the showcase, the next Rainbow Sixgame will be, along with Far Cry 6 and updates for other Ubisoft games such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Rainbow Six Siege.

Ubisoft’s awesomely weird E3 kickoff was the best part of its show
ubisoft e3 asmr show forward

The first day of E3 presentations went about how you would expect. The day wasn't filled with anything too exciting. There weren't any pop-offs out of chairs, or screams of "LETS GO!" about many games. In all, it was a rather low-key affair. In that quiet, though, one part of the show rang out -- not loudly but it was certainly all-encompassing.

Before Ubisoft's E3 Forward event started, the publisher ran an hourlong countdown stream. While most of these preshow countdowns have been unnecessary so far, Ubisoft took the time to actually fill it with some content. We saw snippets of gameplay and some messages from developers at Ubisoft and its various studios during that time.
