Ubisoft have announced that their remake of the iconic platforming adventure Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is not coming out on January 21 as it was previously announced and the release date has been pushed back to March 18.

Ubi shared an announcement on their Twitter profile and here's what they had to say: "2020 was a year like no other. Today we would like to inform you that we need more time to complete the game. With that, the release date of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake has been moved to March 18, 2021. We believe this is the right decision to ensure we deliver a game you enjoy. Thank you for your patience and continued support of the Prince of Persia, and we hope you remain safe and healthy during this holiday season." 2020 was indeed a year like no other, let's hope that 2021 will be better in every regard. The reason for this delay is more than justified.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake will now launch on March 18 for PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
