It’s been relatively quiet on the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake front, with the latest development being the unexpected refunding of pre-orders. With this, there are some that now believe the Prince of Persia remake has been canceled. However, Ubisoft has since assured this isn’t the case.
In an official statement, Ubisoft acknowledges that it has received a number of questions from the community regarding Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake, including whether or not the game has been canceled. According to Ubisoft, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake has not been canceled and the reason for refunding pre-orders boils down to the game not having a set release date.
Essentially, with Ubisoft’s statement, it’s suggested that the Prince of Persia remake remains in development at Ubisoft Montréal which took over the project from Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai back in May of this year. Pre-orders “may reopen” again in the future once a release date has been announced, and that as of this time, no other Prince of Persia remakes are planned.
Moving forward, it’ll be interesting to see how development on Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake shapes up from here on out, especially given that pre-orders are being refunded. Not to mention the fact the game has already been delayed twice; first in 2020, then again back in 2021.

The original Sands of Time was rad, so this is great news. I hope it's good. :)
