Speaking in the Triple Click podcast, Bloomberg analyst and tipster Jason Schreier stated that Ubisoft plans to announce a Prince of Persia remake at its Ubisoft Forward event in a week’s time. If confirmed, this would be the first new mainline Prince of Persia entry after Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.

According to Bloomberg analyst Jason Schreier, Prince of Persia might be making its way back to consoles after an entire decade in the desert. Speaking in the Triple Click podcast, the Bloomberg tipster claimed that Ubisoft will announce a Prince of Persia remake at its Ubisoft Forward event next week. 

Considering the timing here, it’s almost certain that the new Prince of Persia game will make its way to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. This would be a jump of two entire console generations since the last mainline Prince of Persia title, The Forgotten Sands, debuted in 2010. 

What can we expect from the new Prince of Persia game? Schreier claims that it’s a remake. This means that in terms of the storyline, we’re most likely looking at a reworking of the popular Sands of Time trilogy. However, we can’t rule out the possibility that Ubisoft might venture deeper into the series past to bring the cult-favourite original trilogy into the present day.
