Update on Prince of Persia - The Sands of Time Remake

Ubisoft Montreal takes the helm

Last year, Ubisoft announced that the long-awaited Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake would be changing developers. The studio that developed the original in 2003 will now take the reins. The project is still shrouded in mystery, but Ubisoft News had the opportunity to speak with Producer Jean-Francois Naud and Game Director Michael McIntyre about the current state of the game and what makes The Sands of Time special.

With expertise and attention to detail

The team at Ubisoft Montreal is bringing their expertise in storytelling, gameplay, and art to the game's redesign. Currently in the concept phase, the team is taking community feedback into account and creating prototypes. It is expected that no further information about the game will be released this year.

Remake instead of Remaster

The developers consider it important to approach the game as a remake rather than a remaster in order to adapt it to the modern context. This includes improvements in movement, combat, and storytelling. At the same time, they want to preserve the original experience for fans while offering something new to newcomers.

Special Meaning for the Team

For many of the team members at Ubisoft Montreal, The Sands of Time holds a special meaning – whether they were involved in the original game or it inspired them to work in the gaming industry. In developing the remake, they want to preserve and enhance the timeless qualities of the original game.
