The long-rumoured Prince Of Persia remake is set to be revealed at a Ubisoft event later this week, industry insiders have claimed. Journalist Jason Schreier teased on a recent podcast that Ubisoft is planning to unveil the new game during its next Forward presentation on September 10th.
This would be the first time we've seen the prince back in action since 2013's Prince Of Persia reboot failed to bring the franchise back to life in any significant way. The most prevalent rumours of the last few months suggest that this alleged remake will be inspired by 2003's Sands Of Time which, for my money, remains the best one in the series.
Prince of Persia REMAKE listings have appeared online.
For now the game is listed for Nintendo Switch and PS4 with an estimate release date of November 2020.

This news comes just weeks after a listing for Prince Of Persia was spotted online for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Twitter user Ken Xyro managed to nab screenshots of the two separate listings that appeared on Guatemalan retailer Max, which pointed to a November 2020 release date for the game. Schreier then once again took to Twitter to confirm that the listings were accurate, meaning a September 10th reveal would be a no-brainer for Ubisoft.
A couple of months before that, Ubisoft registered a domain for something called princeofpersia6.com at the same time as it registered a domain for Assassin's Creed Valhalla. But while that suggested an entirely new game, the more recent rumblings clearly point towards a remake.
As much as I'd love to see a brand-new game in the series, I'll happily revisit Sands Of Time - a childhood favourite for this writer. The way Ubisoft blended 3D parkour, acrobatic combat, and time-bending mechanics in the 2003 entry was masterful. I've no doubt Ubisoft could do so much more with the premise on current and next-gen consoles.
While I'm typically inclined to suggest you don't get your hopes up before a game is officially announced, this new Prince Of Persia is looking more and more likely. Between this, Black Ops Cold War, and Far Cry 6, there's some stiff competition for the most-leaked video game of 2020.
