Ubisoft Conference Call Reveals Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake In Less Than A Year

Published 05/11/2021, 3:03 PM EDT


A lot went down during the Ubisoft earnings call for the full year of 2020-2021. During the same conference call, Ubisoft also laid out some of the upcoming ventures of the fiscal year 2021-2022 (due to end by March 31, 2022). Chief financial officer Frédérick Duguet announced most of these upcoming ventures.

One of the biggest news from the studio is that it plans to “move on” from releasing three or four AAA titles every year. The reason behind this being “the evolution of the company’s high-quality lineup.” One game that will see this ‘evolutionary’ delay is Skull and Bones. This is perhaps the second time this game has run into a long delay. The publishing house first announced the open-world pirate-themed multiplayer naval warfare game at their E3 2017 press conference.

The studio was very clear about the delay.

“Many of you have been wondering why we’ve had to postpone our launch. The answer is that we simply needed more time. We dreamt something bigger for Skull and Bones, and these ambitions naturally came with bigger challenges.”

The studio also acknowledged which titles led to its substantial profits in the last fiscal year.

“Ubisoft delivered a record year at the top and bottom lines thanks to an underlying performance that was significantly stronger than expected. This reflects the progress achieved in the diversification and recurrence of our revenues. We can rely on a deep portfolio of owned IPs, from our tent pole franchises, Rainbow Six, Assassin’s Creed, The Division, Far Cry, Just Dance, Ghost Recon and Watch Dogs to fan-favorite brands like For Honor, The Crew, Brawlhalla and Mario + Rabbids.”

It has been over ten years since a proper Prince of Persia game released. The studio first announced the remake in the Ubisoft Forward showcase last year. The conference call has now confirmed that the 2003 title will see the new light of the day with complete re-imagination. This confirmation comes after a lot of speculation because of the multiple delays in the past months.

Daniel Ahmad also confirms that Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine will release by the end of September. All that we have left is to look forward to Ubisoft’s E3 2021, to learn about what is to come.
