The Prince of Persia: The Sands Of Time remake has been delayed again and pulled from retail stores
The Prince of Persia: The Sands Of Time remake has suffered another setback when Ubisoft announced that the game is no longer targeting a fiscal year 2023 release. Worse, the game was also delisted at various retailers including GameStop as fan pre-orders were also canceled. Ubisoft doesn’t even give an exact release window as to when we can expect the game, but states that this further delay was caused by developers switching from Ubisoft Pune and Mumbai to Ubisoft Montreal.

EA expresses support for LGBTQ+ and women’s rights after dispute with workers
EA appears to have backed off its recent commitment not to speak publicly on trans and women’s rights after employees threatened to leave if the company attended Pride. In a statement released today on EA’s official Twitter account, the publisher took the stand by saying: “As a company, we agree that trans rights are human rights. Women’s rights are human rights.” It may have taken some convincing, but it’s good that EA made the decision to speak out.
