Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was allegedly leaked by Russian Uplay Store!
Well, it seems like another Ubisoft Forward surprise has suddenly been spoiled a little ahead of time. There were already ongoing rumors that Ubisoft would actually showcase the upcoming Prince of Persia remake during their live UbiForward event but it seems like somebody beat them to it.
A certain online store seemed to have leaked a little more insight than expected. If the imagery displayed on a certain foreign Uplay Store is proven legitimate, the remake that everyone’s been guessing is in fact the previous Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time!
How did the leak happen?
A certain ResetEra member by the user name of AndrewDTF spotted the two leaked banner images on a certain Russian Uplay store just recently.
The user was able to snatch a couple of screenshots. Quite interestingly, another short video clip started roaming around on Twitter shows what appears to be the exact same leak that came from the known Russian Uplay store.
Fans of both ResetEra and Twitter aren’t really happy with the leaked images and short video making rounds on the internet. The visuals have then become the subject of criticism as seen in the Tweet below.
Is the leak legit?
Of course, this leak has not yet been verified and it is still up to Ubisoft to release the final specifications of their upcoming Prince of Persia game.
This actually won’t count as the very first time that Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’s very first release. Ubisoft’s initial release of this game was some time back in 2003 as a particular reboot of the whole Jordan Mechner-created series.
Another HD remaster called the Prince of Persia Sands of Time HD was then launched exclusively for the PS3 some time back in the fall of 2010.
The Assassin’s Creed franchise
Although the movie version of the game did not get the highly expected praise which it was hoping for, the story of the game and the whole world of Prince of Persia is still rich enough for future games or shows to have a shot at success.
If you’ve been a fan of the older Prince of Persia games, you understand just how cool this game actually is with that Arabian flare of pure grace. The parkour like gameplay and a tactical aggressive approach, quite similar to that you can expect from an Assassin’s Creed game is something that the game never really fails to give its players. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is coming up as well!
Although it’s pretty tempting to automatically believe the leak, Ubisoft’s announcement that’s coming in really soon will clarify just what is going to happen.
If the leak is true, there are many other questions to be asked like how did they get the visuals in the first place and why on earth would they upload them even before Ubisoft’s official announcement?
The seen like might not even be Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time itself and possibly another game with really similar visuals. Both theories are still to be either proved or disproved by Ubisoft in the upcoming Ubisoft Forward event.
