Ubisoft pushes back Prince of Persia remake once again

The title was set to launch in March but now doesn't have a release date.

French publisher Ubisoft has decided to delay its remake of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time a second time.

The news was revealed via the game's official Twitter account, with the development team saying that the title would be launching at "a later date."

Announced back in September, the Prince of Persia remake was initially set for a January release, but was bumped until March.

"Since announcing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake in September, we saw an outpouring of feedback from you on this beloved franchise," the development team wrote.

"It is your passion and support that is driving our development teams to make the best game possible. With that said, we have made the decision to shift the release for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake to a later date. This extra development time will enable our teams to deliver a remake that feels fresh while remaining faithful to the original.

"We understand the update might come as a surprise and we will continue to keep you posted on the progress of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake. In the meantime, we want to thank you all for your ongoing support."

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is set to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It's being developed by Ubisoft's Pune and Mumbai studios.
