As we reported earlier, there has been a Prince of Persia remake swirling around for the past few years, and we finally got a full-blown confirmation yesterday at Ubisoft Forward. Yes, folks, we’re finally getting a remake of the classic Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The game that basically launched the Prince of Persia franchise back into the mainstream is getting a remake for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and will hit the platforms on January 21, 2021. In a report by Eurogamer, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake will also be playable on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X through backwards compatibility. In a world where we actually have a remake of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, along with Crash Bandicoot and more, it’s still a surprise to see Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remade for a new audience.

In our earlier report, we saw screenshots that were leaked from a Guatemalan retailer that showed off the release date, which was scheduled for November 2020, but from the recent announcement, we know that it is not true. The remake was on its way, but it is going to be released next year in January. But little did we know that Ubisoft Mumbai and Pune have been hard at work on the game for the past two years. This is the first title either studio has taken up lead development on, so we’re eagerly waiting to see what they can deliver. In the meantime, check out the trailer for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake below.
