After numerous rumors over the years, it would appear that a Prince of Persia remake has leaked online. The leak comes by way of a store listing at Guatemalan retailer Max, which apparently listed a Prince of Persia remake for both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. It appears to have since been scrubbed from the retailer’s site, but the Internet never truly forgets and the screenshots of the listings are making the rounds. While nothing has been officially announced about its existence or otherwise, the listings did include something interesting: a November 2020 estimated release date.
At this point, the most recent Prince of Persia video game from Ubisoft is 2010’s Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. The 2010 title was notable for returning to the timeline and Prince established in 2003’s The Sands of Time after 2008’s Prince of Persia went in a different direction. While there’s no telling what the leaked game might be a remake of, it seems fair to speculate that it would return to The Sands of Time rather than the 2008 game.
Prince of Persia REMAKE listings have appeared online.
For now the game is listed for Nintendo Switch and PS4 with an estimate release date of November 2020.

At this point, there’s no telling when Ubisoft might announce a new Prince of Persia. But if the store listing is accurate, and that “November 2020” is more than just a placeholder, it seems like it will be sooner rather than later.
