When calling its second quarter financial results yesterday, Ubisoft announced to have delayed The heart of the division and the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time remake past their original launch windows.
The games were originally slated to launch in the company’s current fiscal year (which runs until March 2022), but the French publisher has now claimed the titles will launch before the end of next fiscal year instead. , taking the potential release dates of the games. To March 31, 2023 instead of.
The news of the delay is not very surprising; after all, Ubisoft previously noted that neither The Division Heartland nor The Division 2 content will be released during E3 2021. The company has separately assured players that we won’t be seeing the Prince of Persia remake either: The Sands of Time at E3 2021.. Both announcements made the press and the public question whether each game would make its original launch plans.
The Division: Heartland is a free-to-play, standalone survival game from Ubisoft and at the time of writing, very little is known about it. We know development is being led by Red Storm Entertainment, a studio closely linked to Tom Clancy licensing, having worked on The Division and The Division 2.
The Prince of Persia: Sands of Time remake was announced in September 2020, and although the game was originally slated for release in January 2021, it was pushed back until March 2021 at the end of last year. . Subsequently, it was postponed to “a later date”. This is the third delay of the title … we wonder if he risks having more?
Rocksmith + – the music education subscription service for consoles and PCs – has also been pushed back to an unspecified date until the end of March 2023.
We also recently heard that The Division 2’s next big update and new game mode is delayed until February 2022. And this summer, the company also delayed Riders Republic and Rainbow Six Extraction by several months.
If you’re disappointed that all of these games are being pushed back (again), why not take comfort in the fact that Ubisoft is dabbling in blockchain games?
