Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake Announcement Seems Likely at Ubisoft Forward

A number of leaks suggest that a Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake announcement is likely to be revealed during Ubisoft Forward later today.

A small clip has leaked from the Russian Uplay store, which appears to show remastered visuals from the game ahead of a potential reveal during Ubisoft’s September 10 showcase. Yesterday, fans spotted Prince of Persia motifs and symbols in a piece of promotional art for Ubisoft Forward, and an Amazon UK listing for a ‘Prince of Persia Remake’ has also been found.

All of this evidence suggests that Ubisoft is raring up to reveal a remake of 2008’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, most likely during Ubisoft Forward.

A video surfaced in May showing test footage of a cancelled Prince of Persia pitch from 2012. For more information, check out our writeup here.

If it is indeed real, a Sands of Time remake would likely go down well – back in 2003 we awarded the original a 9.6/10 review, saying it was “a must own — a soon-to-be-classic worthy of a permanent place in your collection.”
