It’s rumoured that a new Prince of Persia reboot is currently in development by Ubisoft – and no, we’re not talking about The Sands of Time Remake which is coming next year.
Back in September of this year a remake of 2003’s Prince of Persia was announced, though to me it looks more like a remaster than a remake.
When the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time remake was first revealed, Ubisoft said: “Experience the classic tale that redefined action-adventure gaming in The Sands of Time Remake, the first full-scale remake of Prince of Persia by Ubisoft. Available January 21, 2021.”
However it seems that this Prince of Persia remake is just a gap filler, because a full reboot is allegedly in the works.
The rumour comes from YouTuber Lazy Assassin, who has previously been correct when it comes to Prince of Persia leaks. The content creator claims to have details revealing that a Prince of Persia reboot is already in development and it is set to release sometime between 2023 and 2024.
As with all rumours and speculation will must take it all with a pinch of salt, however this particular YouTuber does have a reliable track record as it was apparently them who leaked that Ubisoft was remaking Sands of Time before it was officially announced.
In a recent video from Lazy Assassin (I love that name), at around the 06:16 minute mark, the creator begins talking about the Sands of Time leak before moving on to the alleged reboot.
Lazy Assassin says: “Aside from that I’ve got a new Prince of Persia leak that you won’t find on any other news source. basically Sands of Time is coming next year anyway, but aside from that Ubisoft is working on a completely new PoP game that won’t be a remake.
“Right now the early concept is being worked on, where game mechanics are completely being redesigned and you can say that it’ll reboot the series. It’ll probably come out in 2023 or 2024 and If I get any news regarding it, I’ll definitely tell you.”
