Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is getting delayed after failing to hit its January release date.
Fans were highly critical of the remake when it was unveiled last September. So the delay and the extra development time is not all that much of a surprise. What is surprising is that it took them this long to announce the delay.
Here is the full statement from the development team:
Since announcing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake in September, we saw an outpouring of feedback from you on this beloved franchise. 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 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.
