Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake looks to be a reality ahead of today’s Ubisoft Forward.
We seem to be deep into the season of leaks. Over the last few days, we’ve had plenty of information leak about the Xbox Series S, including the price and the release date. We had Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War multiplayer footage appear and now, joining the party, is Ubisoft.
Spotted over on ResetEra by user AndrewDTF, are a couple of images from the heavily rumoured Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake. Ironically, this time the images weren’t datamined or leaked by an insider but come from Ubisoft themselves. The pair of images appear to have surfaced on the Russian Uplay store.
These images were then followed up with further evidence as Reddit user u/ZyklonBnetanyahu posted a third image online.
The existence of the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake has been heavily rumoured for some time now. Back in June, a suspicious Prince of Persia Twitter account appeared and was reportedly registered to a Ubisoft email address. This was then backed up by a Guatemalan listing of a Prince of Persia Remake dated for November this year on both PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
Although the game has been rumoured for a while, this isn’t how Ubisoft would have wanted it to come out, especially as we’re now just a few hours away from today’s Ubisoft Forward event.
The wind seems to be being taken from Ubisoft’s sails ahead of this event. They set expectations earlier in a post telling fans that although Skull & Bones production is in full swing, they shouldn’t expect to see it today. Then, over on Twitter, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World director Edgar Wright has hinted to fans that a new Scott Pilgrim announcement is coming our way today. With the rumours of the game returning in the near future, plus the convenient timing, it’s looking likely we’ll see the reemergence of that game later.
