Assassin’s Creed Mirage is a back-to-basics for the franchise, acting as an homage to the first game and embodying its stealth roots. As it turns out, this has worked well for Ubisoft. It’s the publisher’s biggest launch yet in unit sales for current-gen consoles (PS5 and Xbox Series X/S).
In terms of player numbers, it’s in line with the launches of Assassin’s Creed Origins and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. While it doesn’t seem to have reached the same heights as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (which crossed $1 billion in revenue), Mirage is still a much-needed success for the publisher after all the cancellations, delayed projects and whatnot.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC. Check out our official review here. Though Ubisoft Bordeaux said there wouldn’t be any long-term support or DLC, it should be interesting to see if this success results in a change of plans. Stay tuned for more updates on the franchise in the meantime.
