Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake art style and graphics have not been affected by budget or timeline, Syed Abbas, Deputy Managing Director of Ubisoft India confirmed in his latest interview.
Last night, Ubisoft officially unveiled a remake for the iconic action-adventure Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. A title which has been subject of many leaks and rumours in the last couple of months now has a trailer and a release date but hardcore fans of the franchise are still not quite happy with the reveal.
Judging by the comments on gaming forums and social media, fans are disappointed with the game's art style and graphics, which are not quite what players expected. This does not mean that Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time looks ugly, quite the contrary, we are sure many fans will appreciate Ubisoft's hard work but the majority of players feel that the iconic franchise deserved more.
Ubisoft have officially responded to the feedback by saying that it was simply a creative choice of developers to go with this art style. They made it clear that the graphics are not a result of tight budget or timeline.
"For us at Ubisoft quality is of the utmost importance and this is something that we have kept in mind from the start. No there have not been any cutback in budget or timeline for the game," Syed Abbas, Deputy Managing Director said in an interview with themakoreactor.com .
Since the game is still several months away from its release, we hope that Ubisoft India teams manage to further optimise and improve the visual aspect of the remake, as this is the first Prince of Persia game since 2010's Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.
