Assassin’s Creed Mirage has been leaked for 2023
As Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the last mainline installment in Ubisoft’s blockbuster action-adventure series, approaches its second year anniversary, it seems the next entry is on its way. Rumors broke thsi week that the next mainline game will be called Assassin’s Creed Mirage and that it’s set to launch in Spring 2023.
YouTuber J0nathan released a video with all the new details regarding Assassin’s Creed Mirage. From this video stems numerous details, including the setting and basic gameplay mechanics and design philosophies. A Twitter user that goes by the name @Mr_Rebs_ created a list of the leaked details for what may be coming in Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
The biggest takeaway from this leak is, of course, the Spring 2023 release window. Assassin’s Creed Mirage is also supposedly going to take place in Baghdad between the years of 870-860. Going back to the basics means that there would be no leveling systems, essentially taking us back to the original Assassin’s Creed days. However, not everything from the leak may be true.
Jason Schreier, a reporter for Bloomberg, quote Tweeted @Mr_Rebs_, adding his own take on the leaks. He stated that a person familiar with the project told him that only parts of the leak seems to be true. Based on what else Jason said in his Tweet, it is the big parts of the leak that appear to be true. This would be the name Assassin’s Creed Mirage, the release date putting it between March and April 2023, the setting for the overall game, and the fact that the series appears to be reverting back to the basics.
One of the bullet points that Jason heard was false was that there would be multiple cities to explore. It appears that since the leak has come out, more and more people are chiming in on the situation and confirming parts that they have heard or haven’t heard as of yet. With the overall consensus stating that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will indeed be the name and that it will release in Spring 2023, there is a good chance that this is all true.
If Assassin’s Creed Mirage is returning back to the basics, we can also expect that this will be a smaller video game compared to recent Assassin’s Creed titles. The most recent Assassin’s Creed games have been absolutely massive and going back to the roots may mean going back to a smaller scale, which wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing.
The final bullet point on the list is a very interesting one. It states that “Ubisoft will unveil the future of Assassin’s Creed on September 10 at Ubisoft Forward.” I can imagine that is when we should get the official announcement of Assassin’s Creed Mirage and more details on the game overall. Some of those details will hopefully allow us to confirm some of the details that we already learned about.
