Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake Delayed

IGN reports that the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is delayed, and is no longer expected in Ubisoft's Fiscal 2023. Earlier today retailers such as GameStop delisted preorders for the action/adventure remake, prompting concerns that the project had been cancelled. Ubisoft tells IGN that The Sands of Time Remake is still on the way, but like it's titular hero, not necessarily when expected. The statement puts on a brave face, but switching developers and delaying a game's release is rarely good news:
In a statement to IGN Ubisoft says, "The development of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake will now be led by Ubisoft Montreal. We’re proud of the work achieved by Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai, and Ubisoft Montreal will benefit from their learnings as the new team will continue the work to deliver a great remake."

Ubisoft added, "As a consequence, we are no longer targeting a FY23 release anymore and the game has been delisted. If players wish to cancel their preorder they are invited to contact their retailer. They will be updated on the project as the development is moving along."

No problem, it is a new franchise. It is not like they got an old game as an example of e.g. game mechanics, artstyle, worldbuilding and character arcs, right?

Oh dang I didn't actually bother to look it up before. Fml. I was thinking it came out closer to, like, 2012 or something.

Jokes aside I'm happy, this was one of the few remakes I wanted and glad they've realised the game is worth more than just that shonky mobile looking version they showed off previously.
Never heard of a remake of this before now, but is the original even old enough to really warrant one? 🤔

20th anniversary next year, that's pretty old for a video game. Some series end up with multiple remakes or reboots by then.
