Another delay was definitely not what fans wanted to hear, but the fact remains that the Prince Of Persia franchise is one of Ubisoft’s most popular.
The original games were groundbreaking, and to remake them is not something to be taken lightly. At the very least, fans can take solace in that it at least seems like Ubisoft is giving the game the time it needs.
