Rumour: Is Prince Of Persia Remake Coming To Switch? Well, It’s Complicated


Update #3 (Fri 11th Sep, 2020 06:00 BST): During the latest Ubisoft Forward broadcast, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake was officially announced for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. While there was no mention of a Nintendo Switch release in the trailer, a Ubisoft Twitter account later on posted (and then removed) a tweet referencing a Switch version, and Switch pre-orders were also available for a short period of time on the game’s official website.

In response to a tweet about the game potentially coming to the Switch, senior analyst at Niko Partners Daniel Ahmad (who previously implied it wouldn’t be coming to the system at all – see previous update below) said it wouldn’t be happening “in January”:



We’ll be keeping an eye on this increasingly convoluted tale and update accordingly.


Update #2 (Wed 9th Sep, 2020 13:50 BST): According to Daniel Ahmad, senior analyst at Niko Partners, Ubisoft’s Prince of Persia Remake – which is expected to be announced this week – will not be coming to Nintendo Switch, nor will it arrive in November, as has been reported (thanks, VGC).

Update #1 (Sun 6th Sep, 2020 07:30 BST): According to Bloomberg’s video game reporter, Jason Schreier, Ubisoft’s Prince of Persia Remake will supposedly be revealed at next week’s Ubisoft Forward, airing on 10th September.

Schreier shared this information on the most recent Triple Click podcast. Here’s what he had to say, (thanks, Pure Xbox):

“…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. That [event] is planned, it was announced today as being for next week, September 10th.”

VGC has also backed up Schreier with its “own Ubisoft sources”, which indicate the claim is correct.

To find out more about the next Ubisoft Forward, view the full schedule in our previous post. You can also expect to learn more about Immortals: Fenyx Rising (formerly known as Gods & Monsters).


Original story (Thu 20th Aug, 2020 03:15 BST): According to an online and local retailer in Guatemala known as “MAX“, a Prince of Persia Remake is coming to the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 this November.

Bloomberg’s video game reporter, Jason Schreier, has seemingly backed up this listing over on Twitter:

“Video game retailers sure love leaking Ubisoft’s surprise announcements”

One individual said they didn’t believe it and the industry insider then told them their tweet wouldn’t age well.

So, what is this supposed remake? Video game historian and Nintendo Life contributor Liam Robertson thinks it might be based on the “original” Prince of Persia game (if it is real). Of course, there have been many reboots over the years as well.


Ubisoft is hosting its next online broadcast (Ubisoft Forward) in September. If this listing is legitimate, we guess we’ll hear more about it then.
