Rumors are swirling of a Prince of Persia remake, and many are anticipating the game will make an appearance at the upcoming Ubisoft Forward event on September 10th, 2020. It’s been ten years since the previous title, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. The Prince of Persia has bounced around from developer to developer from Gameloft to Ubisoft, and it’s currently in the hands of the latter. Prince of Persia has seen a main title or spinoff on almost every gaming system known to man, from the SNES and Sega Genesis to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Unfortunately, Prince of Persia never made its way to the current-generation consoles because many believe it was eventually replaced by the Assassin’s Creed series.
Ubisoft Forward is holding an event on September 10th, 2020, and will look at some exciting Ubisoft titles we’ve been waiting to hear from. While the previous Ubisoft Forward was a little underwhelming, Ubisoft has been hyping their September event as one people will talk about for months. There’s going to be news about Watch Dogs: Legion, Immortals: Fenyx Rising, and Hyper Scape. While finally, hearing more news from those games will be great. The most significant confirmation everyone is excited about was Ubisoft’s promise of some “unannounced surprises.”
Right now, everything is indicating that one of the surprise announcements will be a Prince of Persia remake at Ubisoft Forward in September 2020. There was a listing up for just long enough on a retailer’s website to hint towards the possibility of a Prince of Persia remake.
It’s going to be exciting to see what Prince of Persia brings to the table if there is a remake. It would be nice to have a game series alongside Assassin’s Creed (maybe even with a potential cross-over) that also focuses on stealth-action or direct combat. We’ve yet to see an open-world Prince of Persia game, which would definitely get the world buzzing.
For now, we’re going to have to wait to see what Ubisoft Forward in September 2020 has to offer. Let’s cross our fingers that the series that spawned an underrated movie, Prince of Persia, will be there.
