Gamers will have to wait a bit longer for the remake of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
On Twitter, the team behind Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time have announced that the game has been delayed indefinitely. According to the statement, this extra time is meant to allow the team developing the remake to offer a game that feels fresh while remaining faithful to the original version of the game.
"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 stated. "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 Sand of Time Remake. In the meantime, we want to thank you all for your ongoing support."
The remake of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was announced last September. Instead of a remaster, this version of the game will be a full-on remake, with upgraded visuals and improvements to both combat and the camera. While the controls are being modernized, gamers will have the option to switch back to the controls of the original game. The game will cost $39.99 when it finally releases.
Prince of Persia: The Sand of Time will release for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. There will be next-gen versions of the game, though no details have been released other than the fact that players will get an upgrade to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions if they buy the past-gen version of the game.
