What To Anticipate (And What Not To Anticipate) From Ubisoft In 2023


And to complete, right here’s the least seemingly Ubisoft sport to see launched in 2023, or maybe, ever. Which is extremely unhappy.

The unique 2003 Prince of Persia: Sands of Time was revelatory. An distinctive sport that reinvented how all third-person motion video games must be performed, with its astonishing rewinding time mechanic, and fabulous 3D platforming. Sadly, nobody else ever had the sense to repeat it, and 20 years later we stay caught in a mire of motion video games that endlessly kill us, moderately than allow us to maintain going. Oh, and there was that Jake Gyllenyhaal movie to rub salt within the wound.

A remake was introduced in 2020, with the formidable launch date of January, 2021. Spoiler alert: that didn’t occur, and it was perhaps for one of the best, given simply how terrible it appeared within the trailer above. It was then moderately optimistically delayed till simply March ‘21, earlier than they seemingly admitted to themselves that it appeared like a PS3 sport, and kicked it down the street. Later that 12 months Ubisoft mentioned it’d seem within the 2022-2023 fiscal 12 months, then took it from Indian builders Ubisoft Mumbai and gave it to Ubisoft Montreal, earlier than saying yet one more delay final Could, with out even guessing at a fiscal 12 months.

Come final November, issues appeared even worse when Ubisoft cancelled all pre-orders and returned everybody’s cash. Maybe a helpful lesson on why you most likely shouldn’t pre-order video games that don’t exist but. The writer insists the sport isn’t cancelled, however has but to recommend a brand new launch date, that means that is unlikely maybe even in 2024.

However hey, it’ll nonetheless most likely come out earlier than Past Good & Evil 2.
