Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake was originally scheduled to be released for PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One in March 2021. However, the game was delayed multiple times due to development issues. In May 2023, Ubisoft announced that the remake had been completely scrapped. This means that there will not be a Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake for PlayStation 5, or any other platform.
The original Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was released in 2003 and was a critical and commercial success. The game was praised for its fluid platforming, acrobatic combat, and time-rewinding mechanic. The remake was intended to be a faithful recreation of the original game with updated graphics and gameplay. However, the development of the remake was plagued by problems, including a change in development studios and a lack of direction.
The cancellation of the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is a disappointment to fans of the original game. However, it is also a sign that Ubisoft is willing to cancel projects that are not meeting their standards. It is possible that Ubisoft will attempt to remake Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time in the future, but it is unclear when or if that will happen.
