Ubisoft has delayed its Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake for a third time, with the developer explaining in its financial report today that the game has been pushed to the next fiscal year. It was supposed to be launching this fiscal year, before March 2022. No concrete date has yet been announced.
An update shared from the development team itself simply reassures fans that progress is still being made and that the game is still being worked on, but there’s nothing offered in terms of reason as to why the delay has occurred.

This is the second time the team has issued a vague statement in response to delaying the game. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake was delayed back in February without any real reason disclosed as to why. It was first delayed from December to March 2021, supposedly due to COVID-19 stay-at-home measures.
It’s worth noting that its initial reveal in 2019 wasn’t well-received, with the game’s graphical improvements looking somewhat lackluster. The YouTube like/dislike ratio is overwhelmingly negative.
