Ubi slips PC version of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

Ubisoft just pushed the PC version of the next Prince of Persia game back from May to June.

No reason has been given for the slip. We’ve just requested comment.

The game’s console versions are still on track to release alongside the upcoming Jake Gyllenhaal movie in May.

Ubi has a habit of slipping off PC SKUs; it did the same with Assassin’s Creed II late last year, with the PC version releasing today.

Ubisoft is currently at the centre of a tussle with the PC games community over a new DRM policy that requires users to be connected to the web to play at all.

“The internet” claimed this week to have cracked the system, but the publisher claimed the reports were false yesterday.

We’ll stick up a comment as soon as we get something back.

    I wonder why Splinter Cell: Conviction is getting a simultaneous release…

    Coming with SUPER-SAFE DRM 9000 PLUS!

    Which won’t even let you launch the game unless you recite every verse from The Divine Comedy at least twice a day for a year straight.

    @1 They’re rushing to get it on the shelves in time for the film. The PC version always gets bumped when they’re under the gun. They’ll do the same for Splinter Cell if they think the 360 version might not be done in time.

    SHHHH, PC’s are cool.

    Everyone would love to be a PC gamer if it costed less, and was easier to do. Just take, that and chew on it – and then you can stop talking mess about companies.

    Maybe they are delaying it a couple of weeks, as they want to get lots of extra content for the pc version
