Ubisoft may soon make an official announcement regarding a long-rumored Prince of Persia remake. According to Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier, Ubisoft is planning to announce the game at its next Ubisoft Forward event that is slated to air on Sept. 10. He mentioned this bit of information on his podcast, Triple Click, which he co-hosts with former Kotaku colleagues Kirk Hamilton and Maddy Myers.
Amid conversation about problems at Ubisoft, Schreier said, “They had been planning … a new Ubisoft Forward … where they were going to announce a bunch of games like the Prince of Persia remake that was leaked a couple of weeks ago.”
The Prince of Persia remake listing was leaked last month through a Guatemalan retailer. This remake is reportedly a 2D one, and the listing indicated that it would release on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch at the very least.
The next Ubisoft Forward will showcase new games and updates on the company’s upcoming releases. For instance, Immortals: Fenyx Rising will receive a full reveal at the event, being the new name for the game originally announced as Gods & Monsters.
The Prince of Persia remake is reportedly releasing in November 2020, but we’ll have to wait until next week to find out for sure.
