Assassin’s Creed Mirage is an open world action-adventure stealth game developed and published by Ubisoft.
It is set in 9th century Baghdad, starring Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Basim as protagonist, and set 20 years before its events.
The next Assassin's Creed could release between Q4 2023 and Q2 2024. It's also reportedly developed on an "old" Assassin's Creed engine.
In spite of recent dire reports about Ubisoft's pipeline of releases and their financial impact, the company allegedly expects significant returns in the near future.
Creative director Stéphane Boudon says that fans' criticism of Assassin's Creed Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla's bloated offerings led to a more focused approach for the upcoming Mirage.
The open world stealth title has been allegedly hit with a second delay, pushing it back to an August 2023 launch.
Eivor works with Basim's mentor Roshan on a new quest. It's part of Title Update 1.6.2, which also adds The Last Chapter.
Creative director Stephane Boudon explains how Mirage makes improvements to various systems, including detection, AI interactions, and more.
Creative director Stephane Boudon confirms that, true to previous leaks, the upcoming stealth game did indeed start life as DLC for Valhalla.
"We have new moves for Basim, we have new ingredients, and also the density of the city is really key," says creative director Stephane Boudon.
Ubisoft says that the game's ESRB rating is still pending, and that it won't have realm gambling, as opposed to recent reports.
Ubisoft also confirms that the pre-ordering the upcoming action-adventure stealth title unlock bonus quest "The Forty Thieves".
Ubisoft says the game will be "a more intimate, more focused experience" with "more stealth, more parkour, more close-quarters combat."
Vice president executive producer of Assassin's Creed Marc-Alexis Côté says the upcoming action-adventure title will be roughly as long as the older Assassin's Creed titles.
Set in ninth century Baghdad, the story follows a younger Basim before the events of Assassin's Creed Valhalla as he joins the Hidden Ones.
The description also seems to confirm that the stealth title will launch as a cross-gen game, with free upgrade options being offered.
A new leak has revealed further potential details on the next Assassin's Creed games, which also includes the return of throwing knives, rooftop hiding spots, and more.
