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.

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.
