Prince of Persia The Sands of Time Remake has been delayed into March 2021 so the developer has “additional time to work on the game,” Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai have confirmed.
The title was originally planned for a 21 January 2021 release, it will now head to PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC on 18 March 2021.
Ubisoft wrote on Twitter:
We are excited to put this game in your hands, as we retell the story of the Prince and Farah in a reimagined 11th century Persia. However, 2020 has been a year like no other. Today we wanted to let you know that we are taking additional time to work on the game… We believe this is the right call to ensure we deliver a game you will enjoy.
The title received some criticism for its dated, cartoonish look after its announcement back in September, so its likely the additional dev time will improve the title's visual appearance.
